So I asked someone in the crowd who that person was and it turns out it was billionaire Mark Cuban, of Dallas Mavericks and Shark Tank fame. Amazed that he would go drinking in a crowded bar to watch basketball, I resisted the urge to get a photo with him right away, but instead I had felt I had to tell him my interview story with him from U.S. News and World Report from a couple years back. Eventually my other coworkers got pictures with him and I said what the heck, I got a picture with him. Again, I feel he’s probably the most accessible billionaire on the planet and this just proves it.
