ABSTRACT
The article focuses on several sports personnel who are willing to take risks in important games of their teams. Marvin Lewis, coach of the football team Cincinnati Bengals, implores his team to take chances-such as when he decided to focus on containing running back Edgerrin James, not quarterback Peyton Manning, against the Indianapolis Colts. Encouraged by out-of-the-box head coach Mike D'Antoni, Steve Nash, point guard of the basketball team Phoenix Suns, pushes Phoenix to play at full speed whenever possible, a notion that frightens most NBA teams.
