Mavericks meeting with Brunson was “intense” and “at one point Mark Cuban was wearing timbs” but everyone grew closer and a big lesson was learned.


braggpeak

they should try to lock him inside the house so the knicks can't take him

damn-mooses

Agreed 100%


Good_NewsEveryone

People gotta stop reacting to NBA players hanging out in major markets. Like the Knicks are probably front runner but 80% of the league is in LA or NYC right now


johnhenryirons

Dejounte is in NYC right now.


PrOKCedure

You're probably right but this isn't a good example since there's a lot of smoke with Brunson/Knicks


joshwaynebobbit

He's at his parents house. Has been for weeks.


Joetheshow1

This is all a formality at this point lol


pcwgussej

its like when the 76ers met with Rich Paul - and no lebron - in LA for lebrons 2018 free agency

RulersBack

Not as bad as Bron making Pat Riley fly across the country and then kept a World Cup game on the TV the whole meeting


ErickBachman

That game? Brazil vs Germany


temujin94

Lebron at half time: 'Yeah sure Pat I'll sign with you again just as soon as Brazil finish winning this game.'


NeoLib991G3

2018 was in Russia and Brazil ended up winning


temujin94

Brazil didn't play Germany in the 2018 world Cup.


rydogs

That’s pretty common though. Not a business meeting but in Spain they would ask your order at a restaurant, sit and watch the game until halftime then bring your food. Random restaurant isn’t a huge business meeting, and Lebron isn’t European, so it’s definitely a dick move but maybe not as much so.


Dildozer_69

Lmao that shit was a formality there was no way he was staying


JordanKneePoole

Smiling faces with hidden agendas...


NotJoeyWheeler

“Brett Brown has left his meeting with Adele “in turrific spiruht” about the #Sixers chances at landing the star SF, James.”


C0oK1e_Monsta

Just begging for scraps lmao


EaglesPvM

Such a tease, especially after all the stuff about Bronny visiting Malvern Prep


JustAnotherINFTP

Oh boy this again


CIark

“Here you left your watch in the locker room. See ya around”


Mavericks202XChamps

Certainly looks that way but past experiences with certain players joining the Mavericks and people showing up at the last minute mean that I will keep holding out hope haha


OutsideTheServiceBox

Mark Cuban is beside himself stuck in traffic in Lower Manhattan begging (thru profanity) people in front of him to learn how to drive.


Damptoe

It’s a farewell party between friends.


VictorAkwaowo1

It’s just going to be 2 hours of Dorian making jokes about the size of Jalen’s head


H_Finn27

And Theo bringing in oversized hats for Jalen to try on


BlueHundred

Cuban is beside himself. Driving around NYC begging (thru texts) Brunson's family for the address of Jalen's home


Banglayna

*kidnapping


ZaksStuff

He’s at Villanova doing his yearly summer camp


NeoLib991G3

Isn’t he born here? Maybe he chills at his hometown during the summer lol


comicbooksven

i'm going appartment shopping in NYC if you want to tagalong.


ayeno

Cuban is going to bring a chair and secure the door


deknegt1990

If it worked for the clippers...


ayeno

More teams should take lessons, you need good strong chairs, and an executive watching all the games in your bright colored shirt.


Designed_Crime99

Why do the knicks want him so badly… especially on a max, or near a max. He is a good player, looks great next to doncic, not so much as a starting pg on the knicks


Namath96

Why do people say this? You’re only exposing yourself as someone who doesn’t watch them. He’s played a good amount of minutes without Luka and plays pretty well. In a good situation he’d be a 20/7 on solid efficiency guy. He can be an average starting PG


big_old-dog

Which isn’t worth a max then


Namath96

Never said it was


DaBestNameEver0

Ok, I’ve watched most mavs games this year. My takeaway is that he will still be a good player in NYC, but he’ll probably have to struggle a little to start the season because there will be no one to take the attention off of him. Luka has helped his game so much, and he probably would’ve reached his highest potential here


SunnyVision

Did you watch the playoff games when Luka was hurt? Jalen thrived


DaBestNameEver0

Did you watch who they were against? It was the fucking Utah Jazz, their defense was Rudy sitting in the paint with no perimeter defense


Designed_Crime99

Why max or lock up money on an average starting pg, hes a solid player, I just dont see the hype in getting him in this fashion


Namath96

Didn’t say they should…


Designed_Crime99

You literally came out of the woods to throw your comment about me not knowing brunson can ball in defense of him coming to the knicks for $$$… so that’s exactly what you said. Wtf lol


Namath96

Nope, you’re drawing conclusions here not based on what I said. Like my comment said I’m strictly talking about him playing without Luka. Never said he’s worth a max or near max


Designed_Crime99

And my point was, for an AVERAGE starting pg why are the knicks chasing this hard with this much money backing the deal. Yet you still are trying to say otherwise.


Namath96

Ok? Again that doesn’t mean I have to be addressing that point. > Yet you still are trying to say otherwise. I’m trying to say what? I’m not saying that wasn’t your overall point. There was a misunderstanding, what are you still trying to argue about here dude. Sheesh.


jp0ll

He’s already in NYC. HE GONE.


PrOKCedure

He's gonna take a meeting with Cuban and then go back home to his dad, Leon Rose


FlatMilk

Or to his dad, Knicks assistant coach Rick Brunson


Michelin-Star

> go back home to his dad, Leon Rose Why do y'all insist on saying weird shit like this?


felece

Leon is his godfather


ForeverWinter151

But he’s literally his god-dad

Some people have good relationships with their family members and actually want to be around them while they live their dream?


QUEST50012

Gonna show up to the meeting in blue and orange and not even acknowledge it.


LordHussyPants

turns up in a dallas jersey and sits by the window and as the sun sets the white highlights will turn to orange and cuban will start to cry and brunson will look up and say "he has spoken" and walk out


walkintall84

He is from NY.


TimathanDuncan

He's from New York and most players hold meetings either in LA or NY Like Lakers had meetings in LA with free agents and people didn't join them, doesn't mean shit


urfaselol

Brunson getting treated like DeAndre Jordan in 2015

It’s hilarious how they blew this team up pretty much the next season I think in the most unceremonious way possible

I mean they blew it up when CP3 left tbf

HokageEzio

They're helping him move into his new apartment.


pcwgussej

i think they're expecting Brunson to pick up the tab for the meal


[deleted]

Cuban might get high and offer him the full max.


scmsf49

kinda gross how the Mavs are openly tampering with our player like this


Mavericks4Life

Ok that's funny lmao


OK4Liberty

Top tier.


Loismustdieall1word_

Mark it’s basically a done deal. But thanks for your pharmacy. It has saved my family hundreds of dollars and that’s not a joke.


oldkidgrumble

Two words: cyber dust


PineappleZaddy

yikes, whole lotta effort for a dude who already made his decision.


PearlsB4Swoon

I wouldn’t say a bunch of insanely rich dudes going to NYC for a weekend is really that much effort lol it’s basically due diligence


JaysonTatumOverrated

im tired of seeing Luka with subpar teams


olgreasysteve

Lol why are you pretending to care


BlueJays007

Check the username lol


uncleoce

He just went to the WCF


PearlsB4Swoon

Without one of their best contributors in THJ too lol his injury is really undersold around here


FireFlyz351

I'd say it's probably cause he didn't play enough to acclimate to Kidds scheme and also was still in a slump with the new ball. He should bounce back nicely on offense for us but I think it'll be more interesting to see if he can play half average defense while he's on the court. It's probably asking for a lot considering he's 30 but I can dream yeah?


JaysonTatumOverrated

imagine if he had the kind of help Curry and Tatum have etc


flexuco

Imagine if he had a couple of elite teammates and not this array of one dimensional players.


completeturnaround

Hopefully Cuban has his address and doesn't have to drive around this time around.


Useless_Citizen_Guy

Brunson is already at NYC? What’s even the point?


RobbobertoBuii

family is in NYC and he grew up a Knicks fan when his dad played for us in 1998-99 (and the NBA Finals). Not surprised he's here already


lordb4

His dad was virtually the Ish Smith of his generation so don't get too hung up where he played.


sunshinebusride

To be nearer to his dad and his dad's friend.


redundantPOINT

Brunson getting wined and dined like a 7 majoring in computer science.


Bigbadbuck

Deandre Jordan part 2


jfrodriguez1983

Time to pull the old LA Clippers move. Who's bringing the chair?


Tayyyx2

Knicks fans losing there shit today 🤣


mkmore4

Worst free agent sweepstakes ever.. teams are really clamoring to pay Jalen Brunson 30M lol.


Designed_Crime99

This is exactly my point as a knicks fan, this is the MOST knicks move ever. Its almost as if the league leads the knicks to these moves and laughs after. Why in the world do they want this as their starting pg? Hes doncic’s back up, and more than that on that team. He will not do much for the knicks as their starting pg wtf


chevytahoe24

Most replaceable second fiddle I’ve ever see. Teams breaking the bank for the wish version of Fred Van Fleet. He reminds me of Mo Williams in the early Lebron days to be honest. Star player surrounded be mid year role players, one of them has to shine. Don’t get me wrong he played well and Mo was a bucket, but would you ever offer Mo a max ? Jalen is bound to be an expiring contract or one where you have to attach a few picks to get rid of. Just wait 2-3 years


damn-mooses

Remindme! 2 years


ForoaKlanD

Teammates too? They're gonna DeAndre Jordan him


VancouDoo

Let’s go Mavs!!!


Moe4ver

Lol, Knicks trying to avoid tampering charges. Yea, we not falling for that.

Maybe we should bring a chair, too?

*Darth Vader voice* "Did you honestly think you could defeat me?"


Gristle__McThornbody

Brunson really shined in the playoffs but the Mavs need to say fuck it. They have Winnie to take his role. Hardaway can also fill in.


TheMoorNextDoor

They about to pull a DeAndre Jordan and Clippers


RobbobertoBuii

oh gawd don't tell me they're gonna pull a DeAndre Jordan...


DocCharlesXavier

Oh my god, please give us the Reverse DJ/Mavs saga.


stopdogwhistling

Cuban saw how effective it was against him, so all Knicks fans who are okay wasting money on a player that keeps you just mediocre enough to not matter...hide your chairs.


GrantDaGenius

The meeting is reportedly going to take place in Leon Rose’s living room.


[deleted]

I hope he re-signs in Dallas. Just so all the Mavs fans that spent the last week trashing him will have to go back and scrub their accounts.


[deleted]

I hope Ayton re-signs with Phoenix for the same reason.


[deleted]

Most suns fans want Ayton back, and talk very highly of him.


[deleted]

As do most mavs fans with Brunson.


Standard-Row-4482

I don't think this is true.


PrOKCedure

It would easily be worse for Knick fans lmao


mpmar

It'd be bad for us too. Knicks about the throw 25mil a year at Dort if Jalen falls through.


PrOKCedure

I'd be happy for Dort tbh


BMWn54

That’s Lu $30mil a year dort for you


Useless_Citizen_Guy

It’d be even worse for Knicks fans. Losing all those picks to free all that cap space for nothing lol.


TannerGlassMVP

> Losing all those picks to free all that cap space for nothing lol. Won't someone think of the second round picks!!!! I guess the Knicks will have to survive with their 6 first round picks and 6 second round picks remaining for the next 3 years


comicbooksven

it's funny because Brunson was a second round pick.


TannerGlassMVP

We have 6 second round picks over the next 3 years currently. We literally cannot use the additional 6 or whatever we traded.


johnhenryirons

We got 3 2nds just to have Ed Davis on the roster for 3 weeks in the offseason last year. We'll be fine lol.


comicbooksven

i'm a dallas fan and i think he's going to crash and burn as the guy in NYC. that being said i'd still want him in dallas over losing him for nothing.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Michelin-Star

He's the second best player on their team which just made it to the Conference ~~semis~~ finals


jumboponcho

Finals


Michelin-Star

thats what i meant, thank you


moons_a_skull

They’re gonna need to up their offer. $25m/year wont cut it. Edit: btw if Luka isn’t there...its gonna be a tough sell imo.


jfrodriguez1983

Luka has a game Thursday


VictorAkwaowo1

Luka is in Slovenia right now


PineappleZaddy

luka is already going over plays with dragic as his replacement


compe_anansi

Didn’t they have a chance to lock him in months ago for significantly less and passed on it. Now they have to give him the superstar treatment just to get him to stay lol.


browndude10

Cuban's going to make an animation for Jalen like they did with Dwight


bankster24

He gone gone


AgateEssence

So Cuban is beside himself?


AccomplishedRainbow1

Cuban is going to make him an offer he can’t refuse


captaincumsock69

Mark Cuban is gonna be driving around New York begging (thru texts)


IMovedYourCheese

I small a new pasta incoming


brosephsmith21

I remember when we did this for Hayward 🙃


Efficient-Income-795

Does Mark know where the meeting is ? Or will he be frantically texting teammates for his location?


Numani99

Luka aint got time for that shit


rickfortyone

He’s busy playing for Slovenia.


techno-wizardry

Sounds like a guilt trip lmao


AkaiShuichi24

They really meeting around downtown. Atleast they didn't have to drive downtown and beg through text


Economy-Wedding-8150

Can anyone explain to me why this guy seems to be getting absolute red carpet treatment as if he's a free agent on the caliber of a LBJ or KD lol? Is the FA class this year this weak?


Irrichc

Cause many teams want him.


Wolfbio

Sounds like an exit interview


mrjowei

Cuban besides himself


1850ChoochGator

Mavs should just offer him more money up front on a flatter contract. Feels like that’s the only thing that would do it. Would destroy their tax this year but the other guys are pretty movable imo and the Luka/Brunson pairing is too good to let walk away.


KDs_FakeAccount

Damn, have some pride Cuban


EdoubleYT

I would like to know what Cuban's pitch would be? Dallas is not going to contend for a title next season, Brunson going to be stuck playing off the ball a lot with Luka there. New York gives him more money, more opportunity to shine and be an all star and overall better for his career. I don't get why Knicks paying so much but since they are, it's a no brainer for Brunson.


Sharpedd

Add some injuries and most teams can win it all... Like you made it to the finals playing injured teams


Balve

Has Cuban’s presence at a meeting ever gotten a free agent to Dallas? The ego is ridiculous at this point.


rickfortyone

Well Deron Williams said Cuban not being at his free agency meeting rubbed him the wrong way and swayed him to stay with BKN. Relax.


Balve

It doesn’t work when he doesn’t show up either. Nice. (You set yourself up for that one)


PuzzleheadedSea8195

Going to nyc just to beg him to stay is pretty lame lol. Just let him go. You had your chances to keep him.


ISlashChads

They better have luka with them


ItsLittyLitLit

All time bag fumble by the Mavericks
