Jason Fraser to teach brave inner-city team the true meaning of basketball

Just when you thought the Jason Fraser saga couldn't get any stranger!

When we last heard about Fraser, he had broken his finger on a solo practice dunk and was flying home to America.

Before that, he was dominating the New Zealand basketball scene while playing for a parking garage branded with AOL-speak.

Well that's all in the past! Jason Fraser is now back in the United States, and will join one of the most prestigious basketball teams in the country.

Greg Cerillo, coach of Fraser's former New York Wizards team, explains:

The New York Wizards are pleased to announce that two of their former players have signed to play with the Harlem Globetrotters. Amityville and Villanova standout Jason Fraser will be appearing for the Globetrotters as Apollo Fraser at events throughout the country. [...] The loss of both these players is big to our club yet the pride we feel in their accomplishments and in what they are doing offsets any personal loss to our Team (sic).


Jason is even listed on the Harlem Globetrotter Web site under the frightening Hellenic moniker "Apollo Fraser." It's practically Facebook-official!

Yes, Apollo "Jason" Fraser, the former Villanova center who was once ranked #1 in the nation in high school, has joined the Harlem Globetrotters.

Fraser will wear the number-42 jersey in an apparent tribute to Frank Tchuisi.

At press time, it is unknown how the Globetrotters will incorporate Fraser's amazing ability to pump fake, travel, and commit a three-second violation all in the same possession into their crowd-pleasing repertoire.

One thing's for sure: the old water bucket-filled-with confetti gag is going to suffer if Fraser pump fakes three times before throwing it.

Cool info and article about Fraser joining the Globetrotters. But seriously, the only reference you can make to his actual basketball skills is negative? That's a really D-Bag move, considering all he's been through.

Do you people have any sense of humor at all? Just stop reading the site -- your complaining is getting old.

Pete - You should see if you can get an interview. They might be more lenient than the Nova athletic department...the Globetrotter's are to basketball what you are to journalism.

Does this mean Frasier will solve mysteries with scooby doo?

Good post Pete. And you didn't bash Nova or Jay Wright once in it. Glad your getting back to basics. :)

What sort of bizarre personal frustrations are the people who are constantly criticizing this site exorcising with their rambling, often incoherent comment postings? When you read back your comments to yourselves, you must be embarrassed. LIGHTEN. UP.
