Not that tampering with potential free agents happens in the NBA (cough-cough ... Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh), but social media and the power of the people have exploited a loophole in the pursuit of basketball's biggest names.
We are less than one month away from the Dallas Mavericks beginning their official pursuit of Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, but a fan has created this very nice site dedicated to recruiting D-Will.
I say official because this pursuit unofficially began back in December when they gutted their title-winning roster.
This very nice, and official looking, site has no direct affiliation with the Mavericks.
The site's mission is: "Darin’ for Deron was created by Dallas Mavericks fans to convince free agent Deron Williams to come back home to Texas and sign with the Mavericks."
My gut tells me a giant truck load of cash is going to trump a very well-intentioned website by passionate fans, but ... who knows? Can't hurt.
