SILVER SPRING, Md. — Former NBA star Adrian Dantley spent years guarding opponents on the court. Now he’s guarding schoolchildren as they cross the street. Dantley, a hall of famer and former star for the Utah Jazz and Detroit Pistons, started working as a crossing guard in September. He works an hour a day at Eastern Middle School and New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring. The 6-foot-5 Dantley grew up in the area and says he took the job for the health care benefits and to have something to do. Montgomery County civil service records show he gets paid $14,685.50 a year. Dantley says he doesn’t need the money. He says he enjoys giving the young children high fives and encouragement.
