Here's the hard way: Cuban made his billion by selling a start up , broadcast.com, to Yahoo.com. This sale was 9 months after the IPO.
From Wikipedia.com (also available on a myriad of other sources. )
"On April 1, 1999, less than 9 months after the IPO, Yahoo! announced the acquisition of broadcast.com for $5.7 billion in stock.[6] At the time, broadcast.com had 570,000 users, and the purchase price was $10,000 per user. Cuban sold most of his Yahoo stock that same year, netting over $1 billion.[7] Founder Chris Jaeb, whose stake was diluted to less than 1% of the company, received approximately $50 million from the sale.[2]

The service became a part of Yahoo! Broadcast Services.[8]

Yahoo shut down much of its broadcast services in 2002[9] and broadcast.com has since been discontinued. Yahoo's high-profile purchase of broadcast.com has since been called one of the worst internet acquisitions.[10][11]

I treasure the hypocrisy of the those suffering from TDS.

FULL forward thinking followup of Cuban......INSIGHTFUL and innovative AND obnoxious at times, he
has an independent streak, NOT a sheeple. START UPS was the $$$$maker.

Are you sure that you are not describing President Trump? Mark Cuban has been a support of President Trump, as late as March 30, 2020.
Mark Cuban praises Trump: Says he deserves ‘all the credit in the world’ for handling of coronavirus outbreak
Cuban's comments about Trump are refreshing to say the least.

Yahoo has made a lot of mistakes, many companies do. Maybe Cuban was smart enough to ditch his company when he realized it had a limited future? I like Cuban for the most part, but like Trump and Musk, they all love the spotlight.
