Mark Cuban has pretty much come to the conclusion there is nothing else he can do to try and make DeAndre Jordan come back to Dallas where he committed, so he is ready to move on. That doesn’t mean he has to like it however, especially with the way he cringes when he hears DeAndre’s name.


The Dallas Mavericks owner was speaking at the Presidential Leadership Scholars 2015 Graduation at S.M.U. when the M.C. brought up the Jordan scandal.

“Aw, you had to say his name,” Cuban joked, before explaining that he considers the matter over.

When asked to reflect on the drama, Cuban said “There’s nothing you can do about it. You think for a second, ‘Is there anything I can change?'”

“You think for another second, ‘What have I learned so I can do it differently next time?’ And then you move forward and say, What are our options?'”

Cuban said he’s not worried about the Mavs — “We have this big tall German who’s pretty good and he’s still around.”

“I think we’ve got great leadership, a great team and we’re gonna keep on moving forward.”

Cuban is smart enough to know that the longer he carries on and stresses over things it can only hurt him and the Mavs. It’s better off to move forward and focus on his own team while hating DeAndre deep down.
