There was a man who used to be the coach of one of his son’s travel basketball team. His team was put in the B league category of teams that had no marquee players at all or an A-level team. The team had no height advantage and was not the most talented either. However, with the help of some lucky shots and a little chaotic defence, they were able to achieve some success.
One time his team was playing a game against a good opponent in the playoffs. His team had managed to take on an early points lead. It was at this moment that a player walked into the gym. The coach had no idea who that player exactly was. However, everyone knew him because of one night.
That player did not have a matching shirt with the team. He had worn a casual black shirt and Duke Basketball shorts. The player said that he did not have a proper shirt to play. He said that he did not wear a Basketball uniform because he had caught some blood on it. It was also the only time players saw him for an entire season. That player torched 20 points for the team and controlled the whole game. All this happened over a decade ago.
Then a few weeks ago, the same coach experienced quite a similar but very different act.
This time around, another kid, who was very well dressed in a uniform he played for, came forth. The team had watched this player play for weeks, and he still managed to touch them. Whatever the team tried, they could not stop the guy. Even if they wanted to stop him by marking up multiple defenders against him, he managed to find some space and go past them. He knew how to find an opening and quickly utilize that opening. The team lost 42-38. Out of those 42, almost 30 had been scored by the person.
Due to the restrictions, everyone had a chance to play in the game. The restriction said that everyone had to play at the very least a quarter of the game. There was no restriction for how much they could play, though. Therefore, there was no limit at all for how long the player was allowed to play. The player was able to play on for the whole game.
Although the coach had some players who used to play more than the rest, he could not allow to let anyone to player play for the whole time. With more than 10 players alongside you, the coach would never keep anyone for the whole game.
The coach of the other player brought him back for only a few seconds. In those few seconds, our team managed to score two 3-pointers. However, that player was brought back, and he ran havoc to win the game.
Everyone has at least once in their lifetime witnessed someone cheat or bend the rules in their favor. A lot of people try various things to get a slight advantage against their opponents. That man once saw press conferences of both Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. He tried not to make any judgments before listening to both of them. The man understood Belichick’s words. However, that man thought quite differently about what Mr. Brady said. The way he was deflecting questions was really fishy. This was confirmed once the quarterbacks of the NFL discussed it live in a conference.
It was quite challenging for the man to understand how deflated balls would mean that Mr. Brady cheated. However, something seemed unsettling when Brady suddenly started playing too well in the second half. In any case, the man thought that if found guilty of cheating, they must be punished. He said that children could not look up to someone who cheats for the sake of having an advantage.
