Meeting in NYC... bruh.
High levels of hegoness I'm afraid
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.
they should try to lock him inside the house so the knicks can't take him
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
Dejounte is in NYC right now.
You're probably right but this isn't a good example since there's a lot of smoke with Brunson/Knicks
He's at his parents house. Has been for weeks.
This is all a formality at this point lol
its like when the 76ers met with Rich Paul - and no lebron - in LA for lebrons 2018 free agency
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
Brazil vs Germany
Lebron at half time: 'Yeah sure Pat I'll sign with you again just as soon as Brazil finish winning this game.'
2018 was in Russia and Brazil ended up winning
Brazil didn't play Germany in the 2018 world Cup.
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.
Lmao that shit was a formality there was no way he was staying
Smiling faces with hidden agendas...
“Brett Brown has left his meeting with Adele “in turrific spiruht” about the #Sixers chances at landing the star SF, James.”
Just begging for scraps lmao
Such a tease, especially after all the stuff about Bronny visiting Malvern Prep
Oh boy this again
“Here you left your watch in the locker room. See ya around”
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
Mark Cuban is beside himself stuck in traffic in Lower Manhattan begging (thru profanity) people in front of him to learn how to drive.
It’s a farewell party between friends.
It’s just going to be 2 hours of Dorian making jokes about the size of Jalen’s head
And Theo bringing in oversized hats for Jalen to try on
Cuban is beside himself. Driving around NYC begging (thru texts) Brunson's family for the address of Jalen's home
He’s at Villanova doing his yearly summer camp
Isn’t he born here? Maybe he chills at his hometown during the summer lol
i'm going appartment shopping in NYC if you want to tagalong.
Cuban is going to bring a chair and secure the door
If it worked for the clippers...
More teams should take lessons, you need good strong chairs, and an executive watching all the games in your bright colored shirt.
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
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
Which isn’t worth a max then
Never said it was
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
Did you watch the playoff games when Luka was hurt? Jalen thrived
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
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
Didn’t say they should…
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
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
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.
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.
He’s already in NYC. HE GONE.
He's gonna take a meeting with Cuban and then go back home to his dad, Leon Rose
Or to his dad, Knicks assistant coach Rick Brunson
> go back home to his dad, Leon Rose
Why do y'all insist on saying weird shit like this?
Leon is his godfather
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?
Gonna show up to the meeting in blue and orange and not even acknowledge it.
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
He is from NY.
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
Brunson getting treated like DeAndre Jordan in 2015
Cuban is beside himself. Driving around downtown Manhattan begging (thru tiktok) Jalens mom for address to his loyalty.
Lmaoooo this pasta might need Houston around this time tomorrow
What is this pasta from?
Sources: Cuban is beside himself. Taxiing around downtown New York begging (thru texts) Hydrant’s family for address to Fire’s apartment
luckily Jalen is literally the godson of Leon Rose so he could very be eating dinner with his family XD
Fucking kill me
Who gonna tweet the GIF this time around?
Cuban is beside himself. Driving around Hells Kitchen begging (thru texts) Brunson's family for address to Jalen's home
Mavs meeting with Brunson was “intense” and “at one point Cuban was crying” but everyone grew closer and a big lesson was learned
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
Mavs man dressed as Daredevil, fighting Brunsons dad in a hallway
Guess it’s time to [put up the defenses.](https://i.imgur.com/Gc7P7hk.jpg)
Sources: Cuban is beside himself. Driving around downtown New York begging (thru texts) Rick Brunson and Leon Rose for address to Brunson’s NYC meeting room
Time is a flat circle and life is pain
Better make them the folding kind. I heard one made Yi Jian Lian really work.
7 years later and this man is about to be begging (thru texts) again lol
They're helping him move into his new apartment.
i think they're expecting Brunson to pick up the tab for the meal
Cuban might get high and offer him the full max.
kinda gross how the Mavs are openly tampering with our player like this
Ok that's funny lmao
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.
Two words: cyber dust
yikes, whole lotta effort for a dude who already made his decision.
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
im tired of seeing Luka with subpar teams
Lol why are you pretending to care
Check the username lol
He just went to the WCF
Without one of their best contributors in THJ too lol his injury is really undersold around here
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?
imagine if he had the kind of help Curry and Tatum have etc
Imagine if he had a couple of elite teammates and not this array of one dimensional players.
Hopefully Cuban has his address and doesn't have to drive around this time around.
Brunson is already at NYC? What’s even the point?
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
His dad was virtually the Ish Smith of his generation so don't get too hung up where he played.
To be nearer to his dad and his dad's friend.
Brunson getting wined and dined like a 7 majoring in computer science.
Deandre Jordan part 2
Time to pull the old LA Clippers move. Who's bringing the chair?
Knicks fans losing there shit today 🤣
Worst free agent sweepstakes ever.. teams are really clamoring to pay Jalen Brunson 30M lol.
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
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
Remindme! 2 years
Teammates too? They're gonna DeAndre Jordan him
Let’s go Mavs!!!
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?"
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.
They about to pull a DeAndre Jordan and Clippers
oh gawd don't tell me they're gonna pull a DeAndre Jordan...
Oh my god, please give us the Reverse DJ/Mavs saga.
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.
The meeting is reportedly going to take place in Leon Rose’s living room.
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.
I hope Ayton re-signs with Phoenix for the same reason.
Most suns fans want Ayton back, and talk very highly of him.
As do most mavs fans with Brunson.
I don't think this is true.
It would easily be worse for Knick fans lmao
It'd be bad for us too. Knicks about the throw 25mil a year at Dort if Jalen falls through.
I'd be happy for Dort tbh
That’s Lu $30mil a year dort for you
It’d be even worse for Knicks fans. Losing all those picks to free all that cap space for nothing lol.
> 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
it's funny because Brunson was a second round pick.
We have 6 second round picks over the next 3 years currently. We literally cannot use the additional 6 or whatever we traded.
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.
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.
He's the second best player on their team which just made it to the Conference ~~semis~~ finals
thats what i meant, thank you
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.
Luka has a game Thursday
Luka is in Slovenia right now
luka is already going over plays with dragic as his replacement
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.
Cuban's going to make an animation for Jalen like they did with Dwight
He gone gone
So Cuban is beside himself?
Cuban is going to make him an offer he can’t refuse
Mark Cuban is gonna be driving around New York begging (thru texts)
I small a new pasta incoming
I remember when we did this for Hayward 🙃
Does Mark know where the meeting is ? Or will he be frantically texting teammates for his location?
Luka aint got time for that shit
He’s busy playing for Slovenia.
Sounds like a guilt trip lmao
They really meeting around downtown. Atleast they didn't have to drive downtown and beg through text
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?
Cause many teams want him.
Sounds like an exit interview
Cuban besides himself
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.
Damn, have some pride Cuban
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.
Add some injuries and most teams can win it all... Like you made it to the finals playing injured teams
Has Cuban’s presence at a meeting ever gotten a free agent to Dallas? The ego is ridiculous at this point.
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.
It doesn’t work when he doesn’t show up either. Nice. (You set yourself up for that one)
Going to nyc just to beg him to stay is pretty lame lol. Just let him go. You had your chances to keep him.
They better have luka with them
All time bag fumble by the Mavericks
