Long time, no thoughts: there's still a hush over Cuban's blog

A lot of people talked about Mark Cuban's vow of silence during the Dallas Mavericks' run to their first NBA championship.

He stifled himself all the way from April 16th -- the Mavericks' first postseason game against Portland -- until June 12th, when Dallas punched out the Miami Heat on their home court to win the NBA Finals.

Cuban has a longer drought still in progress, though. His blogmaverick.com website hasn't had any activity since way back on April 12th, when Cuban posted his thoughts on "How Netflix is Hurting Youtube." He generally has something to say -- usually at length -- every two weeks or so.

So what's up? Has Cuban become bored with blogging, perhaps determining that it's as old-school as NBA championship rings? Is he looking for new forums? Has he decided to limit himself to tweeting, where on July 2nd he urged his more than half-million followers to check out a video of him celebrating in San Francisco?

Unclebarky.com asked the man himself, via horse-and-buggy email.

"Just taking a break," Cuban replied.

Well, all righty then.
