R.I.P. to the LEGEND, Alimoe aka The Black Widow….
If you don’t know who I’m talking about, then you don’t know basketball…He is definitely one of the best to ever do it in a genre that is “just” being accepted on the main stream. Streetball has been entertaining playgrounds around the world for years…since the 1920s with the Harlem Globetrotters, and fast forward to now…And1 traveling exhibition shows. Alimoe didn’t have the “name” that casual fans didn’t know, but he had the game that real basketball fans knew. In my opinion he had the best chance to make it to the league, given how how his game was. A 6’7” wing player, w/ handles, a jumpshot, and could lockup on defense. His game was very similar to Jeff Green with the Celtics. He was a legend that didn’t get the opportunity to shine on the world’s stage.
