Age: 52

star basketball player at Syracuse University in the 1980's who excited fans with his remarkable ball-handling skills, an uncanny court sense, elusiveness, and the ability to make an amazing play at the most opportune time whose signature move was the crossover dribble known as the "shake-and-bake" that froze defenders, then a drive to the basket for an easy layup past the big men on defense in the middle.
