Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle on the team's owner Mark Cuban saying the Mavericks should tank the rest of the season, "I've talked to the team about that. I've talked to Mark in great detail about it last night. He apologized profusely for those comments. I think he's embarrassed by it. The circumstances are important, but what is important are a couple things -- I know that the $600,000 fine [levied by the NBA on Wednesday], he is going to match that fine and donate the money to a charity. It's going to be an important charity; I'm not sure which one. As far as our team, we've played with a lot of fight all year long. We'll continue to do that and that's how we're going to proceed."
