Fortuitous Encounters

Speaking at a fundraiser for the Medina Children's Home, Dallas Mavericks head basketball coach Avery Johnson said that back during his playing days he was shooting baskets in a gym in his home town of New Orleans when a guy walked up and started challenging him to play one-on-one. Mr. Johnson didn't really want to play, but the challenger was persistent and started "talking trash." Mr. Johnson said that he finally relented and "punished" the wannabe, who only introduced himself as "Mark." That person turned out to be Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks.

The rest, as they say, is history.
