Because Only Kenny Powers Could Tell Mark Cuban to "Prepare to Shut the [Eff] Up"

There is, of course, the significant local tie to one Kenny Powers: David Gordon Green, the Richardson High School grad and former ticket-taker who's show-running HBO's Eastbound & Down and introduced Danny McBride to the world in his 2003 film All the Real Girls. But, perhaps you've heard, tomorrow night during the ESPY's, K-SWISS will formally introduce Powers as its new, cough, CEO.

Several videos featuring Powers are making the rounds courtesy the tennis-shoe maker -- including this short family-friendly intro and the long, absolutely NSFW version that follows. Both feature Larry O'Brien-handling Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who's not hot on the name-change suggestion.
