Not many can boast the skills of a gold medalist, basketball Hall-of-Fame slasher. Even fewer can translate such career into life as an “anonymous” school crossing guard.
But Adrian Dantley, 58,*doesn’t mind the $15K/year salary in Silver Spring, Maryland if it means taking on a task with some meaning in his post-ball days.
“It’s not beneath me,” he said. “I’m a regular guy. I just played basketball. I’m a Hall of Famer. And I like working.”
Over/under on the percentage of the crossing children who know he played with Dennis Rodman*and Isiah Thomas? I’m going with 5 percent. Under.
That's pretty nice, but to be honest, if he still has his millions, all he's doing is taking a job out of the hands of someone who might really need it.
Still, I can't argue against how cool it'd be to have a HOF baller lead you across the street safely.
