Deron Williams: Mark Cuban’s absence at meeting sealed my decision

NBA

For the first time, Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams has given some specific insight into what caused him to pass up his hometown Dallas Mavericks and remain with the Nets for their move to Brooklyn over the summer. According to a Tweet from The New York Times‘ Howard Beck, it has a lot to do with the Mavericks’ famous owner.

Cuban missed the crucial meeting with Williams because he was in Californai shooting episodes of “Shark Tank,” the Emmy-winning reality show for which he is a judge, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

I have to say the folks that are stating that just his feelings were hurt. Why you work for a employer that does not have the time nor the want to interview you?

Disagree totally Jason. It makes perfect sense to me. Imagine that a company claims they really want you to work for them. You go to the interview, and the guy who's been wooing you, the President, can't even bother to show up? That would seal the deal for me, especially if there was a competing company that showed more commitment.
