Greek hoops god bestows his image unto humanity

In the beginning, there was only the legend of Apollo Fraser, an oral tradition of stories passed down through generations.

Grandfathers would recount tall tales of pump fakes in a conspiratorial whisper, while children sat in awed reverence, conjuring this mythical hero in their minds' eyes.

Now, there is a photograph.

The human form of Apollo "Jason" Fraser will take his pump-fake-themed act to Broadway on Friday when the Globetrotters play two games at Madison Square Garden in a morning-night doubleheader.

The fake basketball team will spend Valentine's Day in romantic Newark, N.J.

Pretty harsh, man. I hope he has fun at it.

Hey, if I could play on the Globetrotters, I would in a heartbeat. Doesn't mean we can't still make fun of it.

Is there anyone you like? Isn't life too short to be so negative?

I think it's pretty obvious I like Malcolm Grant.

But I heard Pete was actually cut by the hapless New York Generals.
