With DeAndre Jordan and Los Angeles Clippers visiting Dallas for the first time since this summer's free agency debacle, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has some advice for fans: have fun. 

While sometimes there's a debate about whether or not to boo an opposing player, there's no doubting what Mavericks fans will do after Jordan spurned them to return to Los Angeles this offseason.  

Cuban, though, just wants the taunting to stay clean and remain in good fun. Here's more from Tim MacMahon and Justin Verrier at ESPN.com:  

Mavs owner Mark Cuban encourages Mavs fans to boo and heckle Jordan, as long as they keep it clean. As far as Cuban is concerned, it's part of the NBA entertainment package.  

“I think they're going to have fun with it,” Cuban said. “You know, that's what they should do. You come to games to have fun. Look, this is not thermonuclear war. This is a basketball game, and for fans, it's supposed to be fun. Any other business, we would have had more fun with it, but just the nature, we can't. But yeah, I hope they have fun with it. I hope they scream, they yell.”
