We can't claim credit for that one. Frank Isola of hte Daily News tweeted it out Tuesday night after Deron Williams announced his decision. But that doesn't men we love it any less.

In Dallas, overnight, there was stunned silence. What was Deron thinking?? Mavs fans were certain that the local boy would return in glory to lead their team out of the NBA equivalent of a nursing home.

Now, there's recrimination. Marc Cuban blew up his roster to have cap room for D-Will, declining to match the Knicks' offer for Tyson Chandler, the Clippers' offer for Caron Butler, the Nets' offer for DeShawn Stevenson. His big bet failed. One columnist even called on him to sell the team!

Our only regret: No kick boxing match between Cuban and Mikhail Prokhorov.
