Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan may be ready to move on from the free-agency saga that saw him commit to the Dallas Mavericks before ultimately returning to L.A., but it looks like Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has no plans to let his disdain for Jordan go any time soon.
Before the two teams took the court for their first matchup of the season Thursday, Cuban, who flew into Los Angeles to watch the game, had some harsh words that he directed toward Jordan and the Clippers organization.
“You can change the owner, you can change the players, but the Clippers are who they’ve been for the past 30 years,” Cuban told Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
He followed up that comment with a little profanity, saying “I don’t give a s--- about the Clippers.”

As for Jordan, Cuban went for a more subtle tactic in his insult.
Los Angeles defeated Dallas 104–88 for its second win this season in a game that turned chippy right before halftime. Blake Griffin led all scorers with 26 points while Jordan added six points, 15 rebounds and four blocks for L.A.
