"When you're grinding and your back is against the wall, you take the path of least resistance to cash," Cuban told the Johnsons. "On the one hand, you have a patent, and that's your hammer... your hammer is more important than everything else right now."
So Rodriguez and Cuban teamed up again and offered the Johnsons significantly more money than they had even asked for, but more ownership too: $700,000 for a 40 percent stake. The entrepreneurs countered with a 25 percent stake. "No," Cuban said.
The Johnsons accepted anyway. After all, as Joe said, for a protein powder on "Shark Tank," Cuban and A-Rod are "the dream team.""
