NBPA issues statement on DeAndre Jordan backing out of commitment to Mavericks

DeAndre Jordan’s last-minute decision to back out of his commitment to the Mavericks and re-sign with the Clippers has reverberated throughout the NBA. The moratorium period that allowed Jordan’s change of heart is surely going to be a topic of discussion at next week’s Board of Governors meeting, because even though no agreements from July 1-9 are legally binding, decisions that some players make are based on decisions that other players make, and a large majority of those come during the moratorium period, when everyone is counting on everyone else to hold to the agreements they made. 106 more words

Wow... my buddy Jeff. I feel you man. Dreams can be crushed by people. But dreams also have alternatives. When you realize you can no longer reach your goals, don't stop.. find a new goal or an alternative. You wanted to be a professional basketball player? be one. Who says it has to be in the NBA? This is where the alternative goal comes in. There are many professional basketball leagues overseas who offer millions for american talent. Work now and you'll live the rest of your life the way you want it because this alternative goal will make just as happy or even happier than your original goal. So here's my message for you and everyone with goals: Reach for you dreams, and if you can't reach them find the alternative goal that makes you ALMOST as happy as your original goal because believe it or not, this will make you as happy as your original goal and you WILL have NO regrets. Keep your head up Jeff, everyone. And just in case my message didn't get to you, here's a little splash of motivation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNiuK58lbrE
