Loser – DeAndre Jordan, after verbally agreeing to a four-year max deal with the Dallas Mavericks last week, has made an about-face, re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers in a deal ESPN sources say was completed Thursday morning shortly after midnight ET at his house in Houston.
The contract with the Clippers also is a four-year max deal that will be worth an estimated $88 million, sources told ESPN. Jordan can opt out after three year.
DeAndre Jordan might be the biggest dickbag in sports. This definitely stings a little because I’m a Mavs fan, but what kind of grown man needs other grown men to stay at his house just to make sure he signs a contract with your team? Is DeAndre that much of an asshole that grown ups literally needed to stay at his house and guide his hand across the contract to make sure he stayed a Clipper? I’ve honestly never seen anything like this in my life. First off, he verbally agreed to be a Maverick. They agreed on contract details, DeAndre even came out and said Chris Paul was too demeaning on the court, and that was that. So usually when you agree to a contract, that means you AGREE TO A CONTRACT. Since the Mavs now had the best defensive center in basketball, it wouldn’t make much sense for them to try and sign another center. So the rest of the centers on the free agent market came and went, and today was to be the day that all the free agents that verbally agreed to contracts. While every other player who verbally committed didn’t pussy out, DeAndre Jordan decided he might want to change his mind. Now, if he called Mark Cuban, told him he made a mistake and signed with the Clippers, this wouldn’t be a big deal. It would suck, yes, but he handled it like a man and changed his mind. End of story. Instead, he ignores the Mavs and Mark Cuban, refuses to answer their calls, and signs with the Clippers. I’m not going to be a psycho and hope the guy gets injured, but I hope anyone who watches sports lost all respect for this guy. Burn in hell, DeAndre Jordan.
P.S. How does this guy still have a job?
.@Chris_Broussard that’s is the dumbest shit Ive ever heard. If you had any ethics u would msg me and I will give u his address

Forbes recently released their newest Billionaires list, and besides it making us incredibly sad, it also showcased some names that we’ve been fans of for years. Sports team owners, movie legends, CEOs; the Billionaires list is a who’s who of people that are way better at their jobs than you and I will ever be. In the spirit of monster blogging, we decided to each pick our favorite Billionaire on the list along with a little explanation of why we feel they’re the best Billionaire in the world.
He may be #603 on the Forbes list of Billionaires, but he’s number one in my heart. Not only does he own my favorite basketball team (Dallas Mavericks). He cashed in on his tech business ventures with Yahoo in 1999 to become a Billionaire, but he didn’t stop there. He invested his money in the aforementioned Dallas Mavericks, and has been helping entrepreneurs ever since, most recently with his TV show Shark Tank. Cuban, who used to be a nose bleed season ticket holder for the Mavericks, now sits courtside at every game he can, and due to win at all costs mentality, brought the Mavericks their first NBA Championship in franchise history in 2011. While I didn’t research this thoroughly, I’m pretty sure Mark Cuban was the only Billionaire on the list to be put through a table by WWE superstar Sheamus.
PayPal, Tesla Motors, FUCKING ROCKETSHIPS?! Is there anything that this guy can’t do? No seriously, i’m pretty sure he is just going take over Mars once his program gets the green light. Let’s look over his accomplishments: First, funds and develops the most widely used payment service in the world, PayPal. He isn’t done there, not by a long shot. In 2002, when everyone else was taking money away from space programs he decided to start the company called SpaceX. No big deal, he pretty much privatised rocketships. And when rockets weren’t enough he took on his most ambitious effort yet, Tesla Motor Company. Named after the father of modern-day electricity, Tesla Motors has taken the electric car market and zoomed it into the future. No longer are electric cars synonymous with weakness. If you ask me who my favorite billionaire is i’m going to say Elon Mush 100% of the time. He is a visionary who is single handedly advancing humankind. Elon FTW.
Mark Cuban & Chris Jericho Have Joined The Cast Of ‘Sharknado 3’ As The President & A Roller-Coaster Ride Operator
Sharknado Tres – Mark Cuban and Ann Coulter have joined the growing list of guest stars for the third TV movie in the phenomenon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Launching in July, Sharknado 3 will be set in Washington, D.C., this time and, per Syfy, will “cause mass destruction in the nation’s capital” before it roars down the Eastern Seaboard.
Entrepreneur/Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban of Shark Tank will play the president, while conservative commentator/author Coulter will play the VP.
They join a rapidly growing list of guest stars set to cameo in the third film, including Bo Derek as May, the mother to star Tara Reid‘s April; Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; ‘N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will play Bruce, a roller-coaster ride operator.
I can now rest easy knowing that Sharknado 3 is actually happening, and the confirmed cast is beyond my wildest dreams. Mark Cuban is confirmed as the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and former/current professional wrestler Chris Jericho is confirmed as a roller coaster operator. Cuban seems like he got the better deal, but I’m just happy that both of them will be apart of this legendary three-quell. The cameos round out with a sex symbol from three decades ago, an insane talk show host and the most obscure member of N’Sync. To say Sharknado 3 is going to be amazing might be the understatement of the century. I might just stare at my Twitter screen until July so I don’t miss any Sharknado related tweets between now and then.
RR – The Celtics traded point guard Rajon Rondo to Dallas on Thursday night, cutting ties with the last remnant of Boston’s last NBA championship while giving Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks a chance at another title.
Boston will also receive a conditional first-round pick in the 2015 draft and a second-rounder in 2016, as well as a $12.9 million trade exception.
Mark Cuban wants another NBA championship, and he wants it now. When Dirk Nowitzki took the hometown discount to stay with Dallas this offseason, Cuban promised he would build a championship contender around him. With the trade for Rajon Rondo now complete, that’s exactly what Mark Cuban has done. The Dallas Mavericks are 19-8 this season. They’re statistically the best offense in the league, and have one of the best starting fives in the league minus their point guard. One of those things is about change. Rajon Rondo is a great point guard. He leads the league in assists, and now he has guys like Monta Ellis, Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons at his disposable, as well as unlimited alley-oop opportunities with Tyson Chandler. The Mavs lose starting point guard Jameer Nelson and reserves Brandon Wright and Jae Crowder, as well as future draft picks. They basically traded their starting, incredibly ineffective point guard and a very good backup center for a top 5 point guard. I’d rather have to search for a backup center to eat minutes then a starting point guard, and it seems Cuban and the Mavs would agree. I don’t know how much of a difference Rondo will make in their half court defensive game, but having a true point guard who can control the tempo of the game and cut down on turnovers will help limit fast breaks and easy points for the other team. The starting five of Rondo, Ellis, Parsons, Nowitzki and Chandler now rival any starting five in the league, and their league best average of 110 points per game somehow just got better. Besides their defensive woes, the Mavs big challenge has been winning against the other top tier teams in the West. Adding an all-star point guard like Rondo can only help them in that department.
