Mark Cuban’s Absence Hurt Pitch To Deron Williams?

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Deron Williams has recently discussed why he decided to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets and not the Dallas Mavericks and apparently- Mark Cuban’s absence in the pitch hurt the Mavs chances.

“I think (Cuban) would have been able to answer a lot of the questions me and my agent have for him that really didn’t get answered that day pertaining to the future, And I think if he was there he would have been able to answer those questions a little bit better. It maybe would have helped me.”- Deron Williams

Mark Cuban was taping an episode of Shark Tank during the pitch and wasn’t able to attend the meeting.

Let’s get real here and call a spade a spade. Deron Williams is just another entitled  spoiled player looking for the attention and back patting while everyone tells him how great he is. Mark Cuban is a business man and better than most businessmen around. His track record (as an owner) speaks for itself on what he wants to do with the organization-win.  For Williams to come out and say this- speaks volumes, but who is really surprised? Cuban doesn’t owe Williams or anyone anything. If Williams wanted to play in Dallas, he would have signed.

It’s kind of sad if you ask me, but whatever. I’m sure Cuban isn’t the kind of guy who cares much about what Williams thinks. I’m pretty sure he cares about the guys that WANTED to play in Dallas and continue building a franchise down there. If Williams didn’t want to be a part of it? Fine- whatever. To come back and say oh well- blah blah blah blah blah Mark Cuban wasn’t there so I didn’t sign….incredibly childish and pathetic.

Looks like you made the right decision, Mark.
