FEAR THE 'FRO, BUT GIVE IT A BLOW

Now you can take the Detroit Pistons’ Ben Wallace home. For US$50 buy an inflatable doll that its manufacturers describe as a “training aid.” The “Inflatable Defender” pumps up to seven feet tall and forms the shape of Wallace’s body, his outstretched arms and the infamous “Fear-the-’Fro” hair. The company’s website invites driveway dribblers to “take it right to the basket over the big man.” No indication whether it’s anatomically correct.
