Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wore a No. 46 jersey during Friday night's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in an apparent response to a recent tweet from President Donald Trump.

The move seems to have been a jab at Trump, since the jersey number represents the number of the next U.S. president. Trump tweeted on Feb. 12 that Cuban, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, is "not smart enough to run for president."

Speaking to ESPN, Cuban first said that 46 was his favorite number 23 times two. He later said that he chose the number "to tweak the s--- out of everybody."

"It was just to f--- with everybody, because that is what I do," Cuban told ESPN. "You've got to have fun with it. You can't take it too seriously. So, we'll see."

In the game, Cuban recorded a rebound and a steal in 17 minutes of play for the West, which lost to the East, 88-59.

Cuban has been critical of Trump during the early stages of his presidency, especially on Twitter.
