You are choosing who makes a high school basketball team. You have the choice between the following two players. Which do you choose?
1). Senior - Been on the team since middle school. Works hard, decent player, friends with other team member. Doesn’t play much and is OK sitting on the bench of a 12 man team.
2). Senior - Staring trying out in 10th grade. Wasn’t good enough to make the team until this year, but has improved so much in the last year and has grown so much he would probably be the 6th best player on the team.
If you choose 1, how do you explain it to 2, and vise-versa?
