Hey, BTInsiders, which hemisphere of the brain has the greatest difficulty making decisions, and sticking with them come what may? Yes, it’s the Right side, and after after verbally agreeing to a four-year max deal with the Dallas Mavericks last week, #13 FCIR DeAndre Jordan “has made an about-face, re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers in a deal ESPN sources say was completed Thursday morning.” We reported a few days ago that he was headed for the Dallas Mavericks, accepting a lesser-cash contract to play with a winning team and separate himself from #1 FEAR Chris Paul.
It appears the money was too good to pass up, however. On top of that, coach Doc Rivers, owner Steve Ballmer “and star teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin descended en masse on Houston to get Jordan back, meeting him at his house.” Paul had snubbed Jordan only days before, but apparently came to his senses (and some humility pie) to realize that DeAndre was a crucial part of the Clipper team. New Clipper Paul Pierce (#2 BEAR) was also present, with Pierce tweeting a photo of what appeared to be Jordan signing the deal.

In Jordan’s own words, according to one source, “He reached out to us and said, ‘I changed my mind.'”
Hmm, is there a lesson for all of us here? Perhaps for starters, it’s good to remember, Righty handles new info and is always flexible; when it says yes, or no, it really means maybe. It’s not stable in its positions. Conversely, ol Lefty stores older info, carefully organizing it into filing cabinets (computer files nowadays). Once done, Lefty dislikes refiling data since that requires more time and energy amid its tireless workload and schedule. When it says yes, or no, it really means it. Yet since all of us (well, at least most of us) use both sides of the brain to some degree, we’re neither all set in cement nor footloose and fancy-free. But if we’re not careful, we can end up going too far in our dominant hemisphere. Trouble’s often a brewin when that occurs.
As for Mr. Jordan, we think he’ll use ol killjoy Lefty more the next time he has to take a public stance. How bout us? Where would we individually be wise to strike a better balance?
