PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Mt. Lebanon native businessman and NBA owner Mark Cuban said he wants to bring the "Original Hog Dog Shop" in Oakland back after it closed in April.

Cuban made the announcement on Plum native Pat McAfee’s show Thursday.

“We’re not done trying to buy the Dirty ‘O’,” Cuban said. “It’s not over yet for all those Pittsburghers out there.”

Cuban added those who are selling are “over negotiating” and currently making it hard for him to buy it.

Cuban also talked about how after he bought the Dallas Mavericks he was interested in buying the Pirates but the owners didn’t want to sell.

He says now he has no interest in buying the Pirates because it’s hard enough for him to be an NBA owner with a wife and kids now.

Cuban also gives his thoughts on the sports coming back without fans, the current state of our county and a possible presidential run in the future.
