The National Basketball Association baby! The most electric free agency period in all the land! Just when you think it can't get any better the offseason turns into an all out emoji war. Seriously, does it get better than a bunch of grown ass millionaire athletes passively aggressively tweeting thumbnails sized pictures at the rest of the league? I don't know if that can be topped, but I certainly can't wait to see somebody try. You would almost think one man's immediate future weren't on the line here. Just everybody who matters tweeting out their mode of transportation then hopping in a plane, train, or automobile to get to Dallas and woo DeAndre Jordan. Correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure this is the exact reason that social media was created. If not, it's the absolute best side effect of all time.
Hey DJ, are you happy now? Is this enough of a circus for you? You wanted people to pull out all the stops to show how much they value you as a basketball player and you fucked around and turned the Twitter on it's goddamn head. An unforeseen level of foolish antics for a unforeseen circumstance, to this magnitude anyway, in professional sports. At this point I have no idea which way DeAndre is leaning, but I plan on enjoying every step of the ride. The worst case scenario is ending up right back where we started when I first opened my eyes this morning. The best case scenario is an absolutely historical changing of the mind. Whatever you do DeAndre, just keep it....
P.S. If you can't enjoy this then you are missing out on one of the best parts of the NBA; The offseason. Unless you are Mark Cuban. Then you're probably not a huge emoji guy right now.
