“I played for the Y basketball team, which was recently inducted into the YM-YWHA Alex Dworkin Montreal Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. The whole team was inducted! We had a record of 29 wins and 0 losses. We were the best team in Canada in 1955-1956.
I feel very strongly that playing a team sport helps one learn not to be selfish, but to be cooperative and to work with others. It helps to mold your personality. If there’s a fellow on your team that has a better shot than you, you pass the ball. You’re not worried about who’s going to get the two points. There are a lot of lessons to be learned in playing sports, especially team sports.”
