Was it a little late for an apology? Probably. Is apologizing on Twitter the right move? Probably not. However, consider the circumstances. Topping off possibly one of the best sports days in the history of Twitter with a twitter apology is almost too perfect to get mad at. The rumblings of the Clippers re-pursuing DeAndre Jordan. The emoji battle. The accounts of what was going on between the Clippers and DJ behind closed doors. Blake Griffin tweeting out hilarious pictures from inside the house. Chris Broussard making a complete mockery of his profession. Mark Cuban ripping out Broussard's insides and feeding them to him on a 140 character platter. It all happened on Twitter. Shit, if that doesn't make you get yourself a handle, nothing will. How can DeAndre Jordan put a succinct end to a Twitter saga without the use of Twitter?
Also, you've got to respect Jordan's complete refusal to acknowledge that smart phones are something that you can use to make direct contact with someone. Sure, it seems childish to ignore Mark Cuban, but I think somewhere around the tenth missed call and 20th unanswered text I start to respect his ability to ignore his notifications. Be more of a scorned ex-girfriend Cuban, seriously. Especially when you can't even blame it on the alcohol. He didn't change his mind over the phone, so why use his phone to apologize now? As far as I am concerned they were bitter rivals as soon as he signed his name on that dotted line with the guidance of Doc Rivers. If anyone should be making personal apologies it should be Dan Fegan for being COMPLETELY absent during the biggest moment of one of his client's careers. DeAndre did his job, and that was to make the best decision for his future, so as far as I am concerned, a twitter apology will do jussssst fine.
