"This was, like, a year-and-a-half of tanking, and that was too brutal for me". In early November, after less than two months on the job, Ussery abruptly resigned from Under Armour in what was called an 'organizational reshuffle, ' " according to the article. It did not name the employee.

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki has expressed his dismay after a Sports Illustrated investigation alleged the franchise is a hostile workplace for women.

Over a dozen former and current employees were interviewed as part of SI's investigation, with one describing the organization as "a real-life Animal House". Like I said, it's truly, truly disgusting.

"Pittman's overt social and religious leanings have a chilling effect on the willingness to approach him with sensitive workplace issues, say some former Mavericks employees, both male and female". I'll never stand for losing on goal. I missed that completely. "My anxiety would go down dealing with players; it would go up when I got to my desk".

The Mavericks owner took full responsibility for the continued employment of a Mavs beat writer, Earl K. Sneed, with a reported history of domestic violence.

The Mavericks announced they have hired outside counsel to investigate the extent of this issue.

While the Mavs are on the west coast getting set for the remainder of the season, team owner Mark Cuban can't think about basketball. "Of course Mark knew [about the instances of harassment and assault]".

Cuban told Sports Illustrated that he will not let such an environment persist. "I think Mark is going to step up and find answers". "So we got it mostly from Earl's perspective, and because we didn't dig in with the details - and obviously it was a terrible mistake in hindsight - we kind of, I don't want to say took his word for it, but we didn't see all the gruesome details until just recently". Cuban denied knowledge of the behavior, telling the magazine,"this is all new to me. the only awareness I have is because I heard you guys were looking into some thing".

The Mavericks are now 18-40, the third-worst record in the National Basketball Association.

Cuban was never accused of harassing any employees himself by anyone the SI reporters spoke with.

"I earned it", Cuban told The Associated Press when asked about the latest fine. He gets updates, so it is beyond me to the fact that he didn't know this was happening. "That's how we're going to proceed". It's not something we tolerate. "I also have a 13-year-old daughter, and I want her to know that it's both courageous and safe to speak out, and that's very important to me and it should be important to everybody".
