Thanks to the entire DeAndre Jordan saga this past summer, Mark Cuban throws a little fuel on the fire before Mavericks-Clippers matchup.

By now even the most casual of basketball fans know details of the DeAndre Jordan flip-flop. The All-Star center committed to playing for the Dallas Mavericks the past summer, only to back out to re-sign with his most recent team, the Los Angeles Clippers.
The eccentric owner of the Mavericks was quite upset as you might imagine. Tonight the Mavs play the Clippers in L.A. and Cuban decided to throw some fuel on the fire:

“You can change the owner, you can change the players but the Clippers are who they’ve been for the past 30 yrs” – Mark Cuban — Dan Woike (@DanWoikeSports) October 30, 2015
Not surprising coming from Cuban. After Cuban’s initial rant following Jordan’s incredibly unprofessional handling of the situation, he got into it with the biggest fraud in all of sports Doc Rivers. Rivers, of course, tried to act like he did nothing wrong. Rivers did what he always does: he played the victim and blamed Cuban, calling him childish.
It’s unfortunate that Dallas is on a down year because this could have been a great rivalry. Still, that first game in Dallas will be interesting. Cuban has already made his feelings clear. He wants nothing to do with DeAndre Jordan.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/10/29/new-york-mets-keys-game-3-velocity-long-ball-major-factors/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” center=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: World Series Game 3 Keys[/su_button]
