In an interview with Complex Magazine’s web series “Quickstrike,” Fat Joe revealed that he and Cuban were in a bidding war over a pair of highly coveted Air Jordan sneakers. The bidding, hosted by Michael Jordan himself, was for a collection of Air Jordans 1 to 23, which were displayed in a glass case.
Fat Joe ultimately threw in the towel after bidding got into the $500,000 range and upwards. The winning bid was made by Cuban, who ticked the rapper off when he revealed what he would do with the sneakers.
“He goes up to me,” stated the Terror Squad leader, who wasn’t upset with Cuban outbidding him. “And he tells me ‘Fat Joe, guess what.’ I said, ‘What?’ He said, ‘I’m gonna throw it in my closet with the rest of the stuff.’ I wanted to punch Mark Cuban in the face.
“‘You motherf—er.’ I’m over here thinking, ‘This is it. This is like the Picasso of sneakers,” Fat Joe added.
