Barry Rubin talks about being allowed to win.
With the team ahead, they were thrilled. One shouted from the sidelines something I thought showed real character: “Don’t let the good players do all the work!” Instinctively, he recognized that some players are better, but he wanted to bring everyone’s level up rather than down. I’m tempted to say he was going against what he was being taught in school.
They’d lost every previous game but when allowed to play as a team to win they did so…and enjoyed the experience.
