De Andre Jordan

Unless you’ve been in hiding, you know DeAndre Jordan consented to play basketball for the Dallas Mavericks, then ended up signing a contract (which is really the only thing that matters) and going back to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jordan has been getting slaughtered in the national media, for going back on his word.

BSP says that’s ridiculous.

How many times have teams cut guys and not cared what happens to them? Um, lots of times. In fact, the Nets just bought out Deron Williams, although they gave him $27M to go away. That is saying, we are better without you, and we’re giving you $27M to not play for us. Jordan didn’t sign a contract with the Mavs. He took advantage of a loophole, which the NBA created just so this kind of thing could happen.

The league once got in on that nonsense. They made Juwon Howard go back to the Wizards after the Heat had signed him. Of course, the Wizards initial low-ball offer pretty much guaranteed Howard was going to go to another team.

So we don’t care that Jordan went back to the Clippers. He makes them as good a team as they were last year with him. Not sure the goal is to be a conference semi-final club.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
