The Dallas Mavericks lost a bid for another big name free agent. Blaming the players for not coming to Dallas to play has been a topic of discussion on the local sports talk radio shows today. One radio guy called Andre Jordan an immature baby for not signing with Dallas. All the facts aren’t out and I’m not sure how close that wise radio guy is to DeAndre Jordan, but maybe we should look at the Mavericks role in all of this.
Mark Cuban should get some of the blame for the Mavs not being able to sign top players. His comments in the last few years regarding race relations have been questionable at worst. His comment about black guys walking down the street in a hoodie and all that nonsense, has to be in the back of the mind of these young black men. Not to mention the politics in the state of Texas which happens to be very conservative. Cuban has to get some of the blame.
