Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan spurned the Dallas Mavericks in free agency this summer, which caused him to draw a ton of boos when the Clips played the Mavs in Dallas on Wednesday night. In the first quarter of the game, ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy pointed out what he called the "absurdity" of Dallas fans booing Jordan but cheering for Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy.
“I would also like the Dallas fans to acknowledge the sheer lunacy and absurdity that they’re booing DeAndre Jordan tonight, and they’ll be cheering someone like Greg Hardy on Sunday," Van Gundy said. "That, to me, is absurd. All this guy did was change his mind.”
Jordan originally committed to signing with the Mavericks in free agency, but later changed his mind at the last minute and re-signed with the Clippers.
Hardy only played in one game last year and was suspended for the first four games of this season after he was charged with domestic violence when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers. Hardy was originially convicted, but him and his accuser settled out of court on the appeal.
Jordan is averaging 10 points, 13 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks in 31.4 minutes per game this season.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
