War of Words Over DeAndre Jordan Continues Between Clippers and Mavs

The ink is dry on DeAndre Jordan’s new contract with the Clippers, but that doesn’t mean the parties involved are done throwing barbs:


Among other things like calling Jordan “unprofessional,” Parsons also told ESPN’s Tim McMahon, “He’s very comfortable in L.A. He can play behind Chris Paul, play behind Blake Griffin. That’s what I thought he didn’t want. …He wanted the attention he deserves, which is why it’s so mind-blowing, because he’s going back to the same exact thing that he wanted to leave for the last couple of weeks.”

Rivers continues to be a great spin artist on and off the court. He defends his guys though, and that’s why they like him.

The rhetoric of Rivers is reminiscent of how Thunder fans talked after the Sonics were bought by Clay Bennett and moved to Oklahoma City. It’s easy for the winning party to recommend letting bygones be bygones. Regardless, Jordan is back in Los Angeles, relegated to a limited offensive role no matter what Rivers or Chris Paul promise him, while the Mavs have come up empty yet again in their pursuit of a franchise cornerstone for the post-Dirk Nowitzki era.
