The Former One-on-One Basketball Champion
The scene is a city playground, where an undersized teenager is shooting baskets. An enormously tall man of middle age stops to watch; then to give pointers to the boy; and finally to challenge him to a one-on-one competition. As they play, it is quickly evident that the older man was once a professional and, in fact, the boy is aware of who he is and of what happened to his once promising career. It also develops that the father of the boy was killed by the son of the older man during a robbery--and now the man has come to atone for his son's crime. He wants to even the score, by letting the boy shoot him (as his father was shot), or, less drastically, by allowing the boy to win over him on the basketball court. But the boy rejects both alternatives--when he wins he wants to "win straight," and all he asks for is a rematch in ten years, when he will be taller, stronger, and more skilled, and able to go "one-on-one" without any concessions given.
