Mark Cuban Would Really Prefer You Didn't Take His Picture at the Gym

After sneaking this creepy mirror pic at the gym, Cuban says the photo-sneaker promised to delete the photo. It showed up on Twitter instead.

What are those, anyway? Twenty-fives? Shoulder lifts, I'm thinking.

First in an occasional series, What is Mark Cuban Lifting?

Shoulder lifts? Wtf. Maybe some lateral raises, front raises? Do you even lift, bro?

I pictured Cuban working out in a frilly girdle, with red pumps on.

Why would a rich guy even go to a public gym? He has a home gym and Mavs' gyms. Should have just offered a few grand for the dude's phone.

For an NBA owner and cocky rich guy who does interviews with reporters while on the treadmill - what's the problem??? He spends a bunch of time in the gym and likes publicity so he should be eating this up. He could work out in his sprawling home that undoubtedly has a full gym, trainers and some other "yes" employees!

Almost everyone would prefer you not take their pictures in the gym.

Clearly, Mark Cuban is not the type of compensating pussy that judges his workout by the number on the weight.


Proper form, Little Joe.   Proper form.

What's the point of taking candid pictures of celebrities at the gym if you're not gonna get some upshorts or mooseknuckle or anything?  I'm not saying I want to see that (jesus lord no) but if you go this far into someone's privacy zone, go all the way.

Here's where Dallas Observer posts a sideways slanted headline and caption to draw eyeballs, hoping we forget that they are re-posting said picture, lol. 

Cuban's a cool guy anyway, he'll stop and take a damn picture with you if you just ask. I think the eyerolls are because this kid is at uberdouche level. This is way beyond normal gym etiquette but more importantly, this dude is SO obvious about it, might as well just point the camera right at him or pose next to him..

this is stupid. he's a guy just like any other, trying to work out in peace. so he likes a public gym? so what. shows he's a down to earth guy just trying to live a healthy lifestyle. camera guy is a douche.

Is this a Lifetime Fitness? Everyone looks like a doughy slob. Maybe it's Curves?

Seriously, this is news? No one wants their picture taken at the gym!

Gym rules clearly state you are allowed to use cell phone cameras. The guy taking the picture is a stupid douchebag and I hope Cuban gets him kicked out of the club.

Did that gym take the place of an old McAlister's deli or something?

most gyms don't allow phones on the workout floor for this very reason.Hope dude has a backup gym b/c he's likely gone from this one.

true, he could afford to go to a private gym.  hell, he could OWN a private gym.  i had heard from a friend once that he likes to run pick up games at a particular gym here in dallas.  granted, i heard this probably 4 years ago or so, but it's still not outside of the realm of possibility that he could have just been ducking in there to get a little lifting in before or after.

why did this douchebag have to go and post it on twitter?  yeah, it's cool to bump into cubes or any other high profile athlete/celeb/etc., but when it comes down to it, they're people just like us.  try treating them normal as opposed to putting them up on some mantle, and you just might be surprised at how receptive they are to you...

That's pretty sorry...but at the same time, Cuban put himself in the limelight.  If he didn't want to be bothered by the public, he should convert one of his rooms in his house to a gym...or work out at the AAC.

I don't blame him... If the guy said he was gonna delete well delete it then! Geeze ppl deserve some privacy. Can't he get his work out on?! Without ppl snapping photos?!?

This pic is hilarious. If you saw him in person you wouldn't think he skipped anything. The dude is huge.

@studonomentonous We're not hoping you forget anything. We thought it was funny; we hoped you would do. That's it.

And you are replying via Facebook.......which is more lame? You are lucky Eric N. doesn't do another story about a car in a high school parking lot.

@monstruss Serious eyeball. Next dude who does that better be prepared to digest a phone.

@matt.helm75 I agree that Cuban has fed his transformation from businessman to celebrity 'brand' through his various roles on Dancing with the Stars and Shark Tank. He therefore has a significantly diminished expectation of privacy if he's out in public. But I also don't think celebrities (and other wealthy people) should have to withdraw from civilian life and build self-contained castles. They just need to be very aware of the places they choose to spend their personal time, and what the rules are. If a gym has a no cell phone policy, and specifically a no pictures policy (every gym has both, for liability reasons), then he has every reason to expect not to be photographed while he works out.

@curtisblack72 Obviously, Cuban is a man of the people. This proves it. And if you buy that, I've got a lunar land grant ...

@curtisblack72 This will be addressed in our follow-up series, Why Doesn't Mark Cuban Just Buy Some Dumbbells?, expected in 2014. One Pulitzer at a time, you know?

@CogitoErgoSum @curtisblack72 its not so much I think he is not a man of the people. I just think if he is going to hang out in public being who he is. then he should not give the krinkle eyes to people that take photos of him.. i mean that was probably the best facebook post ever.. for that dude.

Is there a paparazzi market in Dallas? Does someone really want these pictures? If so, what does a gym photo pay?

This is wrong. Not as wrong as photos in the bathroom, but still wrong.
