No I'm actually not a win at all costs. In fact when I play (or played) pickup games, I wouldn't even keep score. Didn't really care who won. However, if need be I wouldn't mind players taking one for the team. But it has to be a thought out situation where they will not hurt the team. Can't just foul all the time, get sent off, having to miss games/play down a man or 2, or it would hurt the team. His situation was very unique and worked out for his team. That's why it was a brilliant play. Don't know if he was smart enough to figure out all the ramification and if it would have been worth it, or just a reflex action. If it wasn't just reflex, then it was even more brilliant.
