Mark Cuban regrets not making DeAndre Jordan change his Twitter profile picture

Clippers-Jordan Returns Basketball

Mark Cuban got fined for talking about signing DeAndre Jordan before the Mavericks officially signed Jordan.

Jordan waited to speak publicly until his deal was done.

Of course, Dallas never officially signed Jordan, who returned to the Clippers.

That has led to the Mavericks owner saying ridiculous things.

Here’s another.

Arash Markazi of ESPN:

Jordan never tweeted about the agreement, nor did he change his Twitter profile to reflect his decision. In hindsight, Cuban wishes he had.

“I think the only thing I would have done differently is make him change his Twitter profile picture right off the bat,” Cuban said. “I think by having it just stay the way that it was, it gave him an out. He hadn’t fully committed. Having him change his social media profiles right then was something I thought about and I thought, ‘Nah, that’s not an issue. Let’s not bring that up.’ But it happens. You move on. Next.”

This is Jordan’s current Twitter profile picture:

I don’t know whether it was different earlier this month, but that’s not Clipper-specific. If he just left that photo up, it’s no big deal.

Does Cuban really believe Jordan would have been less likely to renege if he had changed his Twitter profile picture to a mockup of him in a Mavericks jersey?

As Cuban knows, Twitter isn’t binding.
