Update: Broussard has responded. We'd expect this conversation to continue for a little.

Earlier: If you're a sports fan, unless you spent yesterday in a bubble, you know all about the drama that unfolded involving NBA free agent center De'Andre Jordan.
Jordan, who has played for the Los Angeles Clippers since entering the league in 2008, gave a verbal agreement to the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend that he would be signing with them once the league's moratorium period ended at midnight last night. Of course, that was before Jordan called up the Clippers on Monday to say he'd had a change of heart, and team executives and Jordan's teammates essentially kept him locked up inside his Houston home last night so he could re-sign with them.
ESPN's NBA reporter Chris Broussard reported last night that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was despondent over losing Jordan, to the point where Broussard claimed Cuban was driving around aimlessly trying to find a way to reach the big man.
This scenario seemed implausible. A prominent owner like Cuban not knowing where Jordan lived and being reduced to looking like a psycho ex-boyfriend begging his ex for another shot? Well, Cuban wasted little time rebuking Broussard's reporting in his typically bold fashion.

Knowing Cuban, this is probably not the last we'll hear from him on this. The ESPN 30 for 30 on this whole saga will be unbelievable.
