In a case of “how in the world did we miss this ridiculous UK news?”, the Harlem Globetrotters signed Shagari “Skyscraper” Alleyne to a contract. “Skyscraper” reported to their rookie training camp with William “Bull” Bullard and Ron “Copter” Christy in preparation of their latest tour. You would think that a guy who so famously had trouble making grades might not thrive in a basketball setting that requires you to know a script, but Jim Abbott threw a no-hitter and Lance Armstrong won like 1,000 Tour de France races after nearly dying from cancer, so you never know. Best of luck to Shagari.
***Thanks to “M. Vick” for the tip. It’s good to hear from you and I hope you’re clearing your conscience in the pokey.
