Yesterday, Tom Hanks was making fun of me. Today, The New York Knicks take a stab. At least Poetry Slam is in the public eye enough to get the NBA’s attention. Iman Shumpert, point guard for the Knicks was one of my former
Oak Park River Forest High School Slam Team students. He’s a talented writer and been an advocate for poetry (check this!). I wonder what he thinks of this poster?
Also, the Chicago Bulls wouldn’t pull this. Just sayin’.
