NBA Hall of Famer now working as a Crossing Guard

  • Justin Arbogast

Adrian Dantley spent 15 years in the NBA as a Forward/Guard combo, earning a spot in the NBA Hall of Fame.

Now, he’s on the streets – but not in a bad way. Dantley is serving the neighborhood as a crossing guard for kids in Silver Spring, Md.

He’s not doing it because he needs the money, he just doesn’t want to sit around the house  – plus it kicks out some benefits that the NBA doesn’t.

Dantley makes about $15,000 a year plus health insurance benefits. So NBA greats aren’t deserving of life-long benefits, but crossing guards are. I’m sure nobody will be wondering why former NFL players fought so hard for benefits. At least they got them. Your move, David Stern.

Dantley was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame on April 7, 2008. He spent the majority of his career with the Utah Jazz where his jersey was retired in 2007.
