Brad is a basketball player. He is playing an important game. His team is losing by one point. Brad gets the ball. He has ten seconds to shoot. He can throw the ball to another player. It is risky. If the other person doesn’t catch it, his team will not score. If Brad’s team scores they will win. He must go for the basket and try to shoot. He moves towards the basket. He hits the ball repeatedly against the floor. He looks at the clock. He has six seconds. He moves away from an opponent who wants to take the ball. He begins to run towards basket. He looks to the right. He can see a team-mate all alone and closer to the basket. He can do two things. He can shoot from where he is standing. He can also play the ball to his team-mate. He must choose now. He knows what he has to do. He plays the ball to his team-mate. Brad looks away. He just prays that his team-mate will score. He can see his team-mates jumping up from the chairs on the side of the playground. They are lifting up their hands. Brad knows what happened. His team-mate scored. He looks at him. He runs to him. Brad has made a good choice.
