Future NBA free agents, take note! Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban isn't the forgive and forget type. If you "pull a DeAndre Jordan"—sorry, man, but this is what it has to be known as from here on out—and decide to sign with another team after making a verbal agreement to join the Mavs, prepare to face the consequences.
Threaten to release all the text messages he received from you? Check.
Make sure the local newspaper paints you in a bad light when you come to town. Check.
Encourage Mavs fans to boo you whenever possible. Of course!
In the end, this is all part of Cuban's philosophy, which he shared with reporters prior to tonight's Clippers/Mavericks game. "I'm just having fun with it," he said, laughing. "If you fuck with me I fuck with you back. That's just my nature."
Check out the warm reception he received during the pre-game introductions.
Have fun in Dallas tonight, DeAndre.
