It looked like a done deal: DeAndre Jordan would leave the Los Angeles Clippers behind to join the Dallas Mavericks in his home state. But that could all change now, and the battle could be won on Twitter.
In an 11th hour Hail Mary to keep the big man, the Clippers are practically sending their entire team to Jordan’s Houston crib to change his mind. But the Mavericks do not want to risk losing him, and are en route with their own squad to stop this. What is usually a quiet battle became an all-out war, and the weapon of choice for each team throwing down? Emojis.
Chandler Parsons, who some say helped with wooing him to the Mavericks, fired this shot when it was revealed that Doc Rivers was headed to Texas:
And what about Chris Paul, who may have been the big reason Jordan left due to tensions between the two? He wanted to make things right, and sent out this epic emoji combo of a banana boat referencing his vacation with LeBron James and Dwayne Wade:
Will Jordan stick to his four year, $80 million decision to help the Mavs rebuild? Or will he remain with the only team he knows for a better shot at a championship and $110 million over five years? Free agents can officially sign their contracts tomorrow, so everyone will be left in emoji suspense until midnight.
