DeAndre Jordan apologized to Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks and their fans in two tweets on Friday night.
It was his first public statement since deciding to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers after making a verbal commitment to the Mavericks.
I want to publicly apologize to one of the best owners in the world @MCuban, the @DallasMavs and their fans.— DeAndre Jordan (@deandrejordan6) July 11, 2015
I am humbled by @DallasMavs & @MCuban kindness and understanding. I am sorry to have a change of heart.— DeAndre Jordan (@deandrejordan6) July 11, 2015
In a bizarre saga that played out in emojis in the world of Twitter, Jordan had remained silent throughout.
Cuban was dumbfounded by the radio silence from Jordan and Chandler Parsons spoke out against the defensive stalwart while Jordan's Clippers teammates and coach stood up for the big man.
Jordan -- who signed a four-year, $87.7 million dollar deal -- at least took one step in mending his relationship with Cuban and the Mavericks. Only time will tell. A well placed emoji in that tweet may have helped seal the deal.
