Mavs on Decades of Misconduct In Front Office
09/19/2018 5:14pm

A seven-month investigation into sexual harassment and workplace misconduct allegations within the Dallas Mavericks organization was released Wednesday afternoon confirming "numerous instances of sexual harassment and other improper workplace conduct within the Mavericks organization" over two decades.Key among the findings were allegations of improper workplace conduct toward 15 female employees by the Mavericks’ former President and CEO Terdema Ussery, including inappropriate comments, touching and forcible kissing, and allegations of improper workplace conduct by former Mavericks ticket sales employee Chris Hyde. Snell Wins 20th, Ties Rays Record in Victory Over Texas Hyde's inappropriate conduct was said to include inappropriate comments to women of a sexual nature, the viewing and sharing of pornographic images and videos, unsolicited and unwanted sexual advances, and violent and threatening outbursts toward co-workers.Additionally, there were two acts of domestic violence allegedly perpetrated by former Mavs.com reporter Earl Sneed, including one against a team employee. Teams Honor 13-Year-Old Who Died Following Football Practice The allegations are part of a 43-page investigative report by Lowenstein Sandler that was released Wednesday afternoon. The NBA's response to the report was released at the same time.Investigators said Ussery engaged in a pattern of harassment and that included unwanted touching and massaging, inappropriate comments and forcible kissing and that he found a number of ways to touch and "compliment" women on their appearance. The investigation substantiated claims made by 13 people between 2000 and 2015. Many of the claims were determined to be credible because many women told colleagues about the misconduct when it happened and many contained common threads, even among women who didn't know each other. Ussery denies inappropriate contact and sexual comments but did admit that he complimented women and massaged one woman's shoulders. He also admitted to having one sexual conversation with one woman but added that she initiated it. Mustang-Panther Stadium Renovation Delayed by Weather Again “We did a lot of things of wrong. And I wasn’t there to oversee him [Ussery]. And so yeah, everybody has every reason to question me, but I just wasn’t there and that was my fault," said team owner Mark Cuban.According to the report there was no evidence Cuban knew of Ussery's behavior or that anyone told him about the behavior, but the same can't be said about Hyde's alleged behavior.The report said 14 current and former employees said Hyde looked at pornographic material on his computer, laptop and phone; another 50 employees said they heard about his alleged behavior. Nine employees said Hyde's monitor was moved against a cubical wall so fewer people would see what he was looking at and seven said he'd made unwanted sexual advances.Sexually explicit images were found on Hyde's computer when it was searched in 2008 as part of a lawsuit. Lawyers for the team notified Cuban who sent a  "very strongly worded email" to Ussery and Pittman "telling him to stop it or he'd get fired."In 2011, a condom was seen falling out of Hyde's pants. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and Cuban was notified. According to the report, Cuban said not to make a bigger issue out of it than it was and to put Hyde on probation and warn him of termination should it happen again.Sometime between 2011 and 2013 Cuban said, "this bullshit with Chris Hyde is going to end," when it was believed Hyde was taking kickbacks from a ticket broker.In 2014 Hyde allegedly "behaved inappropriately" with a new female employee; Cuban said to fire him.On Hyde, Cuban told ESPN in a taped interview that aired Wednesday, "Obviously this was a huge mistake on my part. I mean, I was under the impression that he had the first issue with the pornography was resolved and obviously it wasn’t. And I said if anything out of the question happens again, well, what was three years earlier and I hadn’t had any follow up beyond being told that he was being -- from my perspective there weren’t any issues. It was stupid on my part," Cuban said. “I messed up. I should have just fired him on the spot. It was just a huge mistake. There’s just no way to downplay it and if someone were to show me from another company and asked me to read it I would say you can’t make a bigger mistake because that destroys the whole culture of your organization.”As a result of the investigation, Cuban said he's ultimately responsible for the culture and conduct of his employees and has pledged to contributed $10 million to organizations committed to supporting the leadership and development of women in the sports industry and combating domestic violence.“The findings of the independent investigation are disturbing and heartbreaking and no employee in the NBA, or any workplace for that matter, should be subject to the type of working environment described in the report,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “While nothing will undo the harm caused by a select few former employees of the Mavericks, the workplace reforms and the $10 million that Mark has agreed to contribute are important steps toward rectifying this past behavior and shining a light on a pervasive societal failing — the inability of too many organizations to provide a safe and welcoming workplace for women.”The investigation recommended a number of changes be made at the organization, including increasing the number of women on staff and in leadership positions; Enhancing a formal reporting process for victims of misconduct; Implementing regular employee surveys on workplace culture and expanding and improving the human resources department and instituting clear protocols for investigating allegations of workplace misconduct."The report confirms that several of these steps have already been taken, including the hiring of Ms. Marshall and other new senior female leaders, and notes that 'we heard from employees of a sea change in the professional environment at the Mavericks that began almost immediately following' the publication of the Sports Illustrated article," the league said in a statement.The league is also requiring the Mavericks provide them with quarterly reports regarding the recommendations set forth in the report and their implementation; Immediately report to the league office any instances or allegations of significant misconduct by any employee; Continually enhance and update annual “Respect in the Workplace” training for all staff, including ownership; and implement a program to train all staff, including ownership, on issues related to domestic violence, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.During a taped interview with ESPN, Cuban got emotional discussing how he felt reading the reports and details of what the women who worked for the team went through.“Just the pain that they went through at my company. It was the same way I felt when I stood in front of Mavs employees for the first time after this came out. I apologized to them. It just never in my wildest dreams that I think that this was happening and it was right underneath me. The pain that people went through, the pain that people shared with me as this happened, the tears that I saw. It just hurt and the way I felt was nothing compared to the way they felt. I mean, I, you know, I guess just my nature, I mean recognizing I made a mistake, learn from it, and then try to fix it.”Related stories from NBC DFWMavs CEO Celebrates Completion of 100-Day Plan to Change Workplace CultureMavs to Implement Council Focused on Diversity & Inclusion in the Wake of Off-Season ScandalDallas Mavericks Dancers to Show Less Skin, Clean Up RoutinesDallas Mavericks CEO Launches 100-Day Plan in Wake of ScandalThe Report of the Independent Investigation of Dallas Basketball LimitedPhoto Credit: Vernon Bryant/The Dallas Morning News

Courageous Kid: Logan Young
09/19/2018 5:27pm

Rolling into Bachman Recreation Center on a Saturday morning in August, is the Dallas Junior Mavericks wheelchair basketball team.One of their coaches is Paralympian Gina Jenkins McWilliams. Free Medical, Dental & Eye Care Offered at Fort Worth Event “I want people to look at these children as an athlete first, and then they happen to be an athlete who has a physical challenge greater than most,” Gina said.One of the newest members on this team, is 11-year-old Logan Young. He’s only been playing basketball with the Dallas Junior Mavericks for a few months, but it wasn’t hard for him to connect with his new teammates. FW Police Find Man Shot in Pickup Truck “I just kind of be myself,” Logan said with a smile.Outside of practice, Logan can walk and run, but with a slight limitation. Lyndo Jones Takes the Stand in Mesquite Officer's Trial “Is your right side as strong as your left side?” we asked.“No, this side is weaker,” Logan said, referencing the right side of his body.After being adopted from South Korea at 9 months old, doctors in the US diagnosed Logan with Cerebral Palsy. His mom, Rachel Young, said his symptoms are only physical.“Logan doesn’t really use the right side of his—in particular his right hand, unless he is forced to use it,” Rachel said. “Sometimes he even forgets he has it and so you’ll see him doing everything with the left hand and this [right] hand is way back here. He forgets he even has it.”So wheelchair basketball forces Logan to strengthen both hands.“He doesn’t usually use a wheelchair, but if you wheel in a wheelchair with just the left hand he spins in a circle,” Rachel said. “So he had to learn real quickly that he had to use the right side of that body.”Being forced to use both hands will also help Logan improve in all of the other sports he plays too—everything from golf to floor hockey.“So if you had to rank your sports, which is your favorite?” we asked.“Baseball,” Logan said.Logan is an all-star player in Miracle League DFW. His parents showed us a video of a game where Logan walked up to hit, called his shot with his bat, and then hit a Miracle League home run.His nickname on the field is “Lock and Load Logan.”Logan also earned an invitation to represent Miracle League DFW at Globe Life Field, where he got to throw out the first pitch for the Texas Rangers.“So what was it like when you walked out on the field and you saw all those people?” we asked.“A little nerve racking,” Logan said, but he didn’t let it phase him and he threw a perfect pitch to Ranger Josh Bonifay.“So is there anything you can’t do?” we asked Logan.“Um, I don’t think so,” Logan said with a smile.Logan is an all-around athlete whose love for every game pushes everyone around him.“And he doesn’t let his disability get in the way at all,” his mom, Rachel, said. “We figure out how to make it work for him because he’s determined to do the same things everyone else can do—even though he just uses one half of his body.”And he never turns down an opportunity to try.“I just like having fun and meeting new people and making new friends,” Logan said.Logan starts another season of Miracle League DFW baseball on September 22nd. That day is also the grand opening of the Historymaker Homes Miracle League Pavilion in Arlington, which is handicap-accessible.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News
