Though he was perhaps most well-known initially as an NBA owner that didn't mince words when he saw something he didn't like, Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban has become one of the most recognizable figures in America.

Cuban initially developed his wealth as the founder of the company MicroSolutions, but has since made a slew of other incredible investments that have skyrocketed his net worth to $4.4 billion.

In January of 2000, Cuban bought the Mavericks for $285 million. Forbes estimated in 2020 that the team is worth $2.4 billion. Additionally, he said in September of 2019 that he owns "close to a billion dollars" in Amazon stock, a company that's reportedly worth $1 trillion. He owned Landmark movie theaters from September of 2003 until December of 2018. And he's of course been one of the investors on ABC's wildly popular program "Shark Tank" for 10 seasons now.

So how does Cuban stack up against his NBA peers? Courtesy of Celebrity Net Worth, here's a look at how much the 25 majority NBA owners whose estimated net worths are publicly available are valued at:
