Were you one of the lucky campers who participated in the basketball camp at the West Valley JCC? If you did, you met "Smooth" and "Special," two very smooth and special basketball players from the Harlem Globetrotters. Unscramble the scrambled words in the following passage, and you'll learn about a famous Israeli basketball star:
The most loved player in Israeli AKTALBESBL history is the legendary Tal Brody (right), who led the U.S. team to the LOGD Medal in the Maccabiah Games of 1965. Brody was a star at the University of LIOSILNI, and wanted to continue his American professional career. But Moshe Dayan himself asked ROYDB to come back to SELIRA. The next year, Tal made aliyah. In 1977, Brody led his team, ACBIMCA - LET VIAV, to a 91-79 victory against Moscow, the USINRSA champions. It was as if VIADD had slain OLATGIH once again! "We are on the map, and we are staying on the map," Brody said at the time.
