That night, Adam had an unusual dream: He was playing in a gigantic stadium. It was the last qualifying game before the championship. They were two points behind. With a few seconds left, the power forward passed the ball to him. Adam pump-faked the opponent's center and finished with a three-pointer. The game was over. They had won. Adam woke up.
