The Dallas Mavericks lost Jalen Brunson in free agency after the Knicks offered him a four-year deal worth $104 million. It was a massive payday for JB, and he got the chance to play for his father, who is an assistant coach in New York. Brunson and his family have close ties with the entire Knicks organization, and the situation was just too good to pass up, despite his close connection with the Mavericks.
One thing fans will miss nearly as much as his play on the court is the back-and-forth between JB and Luka Doncic. The two young guards were both drafted in 2018 and played their first four NBA seasons together in Dallas where they became known for their hilarious banter both on the court and on social media.
When the Eagles matched up against the Cowboys on Sunday night football, it was another opportunity for the Twitter banter. Brunson is an Eagles fanatic, and the Maverick superstar is often spotted at Cowboys games. Fans will remember their infamous bet in 2020 where Brunson had to wear a Luka’s son jersey. Well, JB got a bit of revenge on Sunday.
