Yeah, you tell him Mark. Fucking Doc Rivers, that big jerk. Just completely making up all those things that you said about DeAndre Jordan after he left to sign the Clippers. What a disingenuous move to put words in your mouth right after DJ pulled his dick out of it and said "see ya never". How could he even know about the time you compared his player's decision, or indecision, to having makeup sex with an ex-girlfriend...
...Or the time you compared Richard Jefferson's change of heart to that of DeAndre Jordan...
...or the time you wrote a full on monologue on CyberDust knowing it would get leaked to the public...
...or the time you refused to accept DeAndre Jordan's apology...
Hey Mark, think it might be fair to say that you're refusal to discuss anything DeAndre Jordan related might just be a little bit of revisionist history? I''m not saying I blame you for being scorned by Jordan's decision, especially since it will undoubtedly have a disastrous effect on the Mavericks this upcoming season. Just don't start this "who, ME?!?" nonsense when literally everything you say gets broadcast to millions upon millions of people. We're not as stupid as we look Mark.
Furthermore, Doc Rivers didn't break the unwritten rules of the NBA moratorium on a whim. He did so with full knowledge that DJ had not only reconsidered his decision to sign with Dallas, but had basically already changed his mind. Any coach, or owner, that wouldn't do everything in their power to get back a player that wanted to be back, and was so imperative to the success of their franchise would be a moron. Can you imagine if Dirk Nowitzki had done something similar? Mark Cuban would be on his private jet in a heartbeat. Ethics? Fuck 'em. Morals? Fuck 'em. If it's not written in stone then it's existence as a rule is merely situational. A business man as shrewd as Mark Cuban should know that.
Doc Rivers did stand to lose quite a bit with the departure of DeAndre Jordan. No DJ not only meant no depth in the front court, but it also meant very little cap space to create that depth. With that said, the Mavericks plus DeAndre Jordan is a team that is pretty comparable talent wise to a Clippers team minus DeAndre Jordan. A team with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, JJ Redick, Paul Pierce, Jamal Crawford, and Lance Stephenson is still a playoff team. In fact that they are probably just as good of a team as one centered around Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, and DeAndre Jordan. Not sure how losing a player like DJ, no matter how important he is to team, would signify the end of Doc River's career. That seems like a little bit of an exaggeration to me. The Clippers would still be quite the draw to free agents, and the would only be a year away from having the availability of another max contract. I understand that Mark Cuban still feels slighted, but declaring the end of a relatively young and talented coach's career based on the potential loss of ONE player is just another example of how childish he has been in handling this whole situation.
Hey Cubes, you mad bro?
