Wes’s father always told him that there was only one ball in basketball—that you had to know when to take it yourself and when to give it up, and that finding the right balance was the key. So at every practice and every game, Wes tries his best to be a good basketball player and, above all, a good teammate.

But as the season kicks off, Wes finds that not everyone on his team has the same idea. All-star player and the Hawks’ point guard, Danilo “Dinero” Rey, seems determined to monopolize the ball. If Wes is to lead the Hawks to the playoffs, he’ll need to find new ways to dish out an assist—even if it means his most important player comes off the court.
