Back in Junior High, I was in a Youth Community Basketball League. Typically, teams were picked at random by culling from a list of guys who signed up for the short, 14 game season (plus playoffs). My team, however, was captained by one of my more stringent playground-basketball enemies, and coached by his father. Dave (because we were all named Dave back then) was clever enough to realize that even if we were always on opposing teams at school, we were still really good players in our own rights, and would be consequently unstoppable together. Therefore, Dave fed his dad a list of names of all the best guys in school, thereby making us into an indomitable uber-team. Each game was a hard-fought trial by fire that season; but, we were somehow able to persevere and surprise the entire league by amassing an incredible and impressive record of….0-14.
