In an effort to clear the air surrounding the DeAndre Jordan Clippers-Mavericks-decision saga, Players' Tribune contributing editor and Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul Pierce shared his thoughts Saturday morning.
The Truth has given a version of the truth, which has been disputed by various reports as well as Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. As Pierce tells it, it goes something like this:
Contract, thinking man at crossroads, Mavericks logo, old Clippers logo, hourglass, lightbulb, airplane, Texas, house, thinking people pow-wow, heart, basketball, money, new Clippers logo, playing cards, clock strikes midnight, contract signing, smiley face, airplane, California, trophy, and what appears to be a custom signpost that reads "Truth."
Sources could not confirm, but I have a sneaking suspicion Pierce just screenshotted a bunch of Microsoft Word clip art. Maybe Steve Ballmer disallows Apple's emojis, too.
