Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – NBA commissioner David Stern granted Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wish to be fined one more time before his retirement on Feb.1.

Cuban has been vocal about his plan to draw the final fine of Stern’s 30-year tenure as commissioner.

He got his wish when he was slapped a $100,000 fine for confronting officials on the court and directing inappropriate language during the Mavs’ 129-127 loss Wednesday night to the Los Angeles Clippers.

The outburst was supposedly triggered by a controversial foul call against Dallas forward Shawn Marion.

Cuban announced via Twitter that he would donate an equal amount to a charity.

The fine marks the 20th time for Cuban since he bought the Mavs in Jan. 2000.

Those fines have cost Cuban a total of $1.9 million, plus matching donations to charities of his choice.
