While these aren’t exactly glory days for the Seattle Sonics, remarkably, there’s a man in Somerville, MA who believed passing himself off as the franchise’s director of player development would….I dunno, get him laid?
The Somerville News’ George Hassett reports Ron Craven (above) tricked local women and his own paper into believing he held a position with the Sonics, though in other instances, he attempted to pass himself off as Jeff Turner or Todd Lichti.
Local police, writes Hassett, contacted Craven “to tell him he was a weirdo”. Never let it be said law enforcement in the Boston area doesn’t know how to handle serious situations. (link courtesy Jon Solomon)
