Thursday night the Clippers and Dallas Mavericks faced off in LA. Although it’s early in the season, this game was anticipated following the Mavs failed attempts at signing DeAndre Jordan this offseason.
Mavs owner Mark Cuban is always outspoken, and though he was courtside last night, he told reporters prior to the game that he doesn’t give a “sh*t” about the Clippers.
Cuban had also said, “You can change the owner, you can change the players but the Clippers are who they’ve been for the past 30 years.
But I guess love and the kiss cam conquer all. Cuban and Clippers owner Steve Ballmer ended up on the big screen during the game.
There was this series of plays where things got chippy between veteran Dallas Big Dirk Nowitzki and DeAndre Jordan.
And then there were the victory shots from the Clippers following the game, with Doc giving the ultimate, “I’m on top” reaction to Cuban’s comments.
