Check this out! This crossing guard is actually former NBA Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley.

He's working for one hour a day at a school in Silver Springs, Maryland, keeping kids safe and taking care of business for himself.

“The NBA, even though you make a lot of money, they don't pay for your health premiums. And me watching the news and business, and the premiums go up every year, and I always joke to people, I tell my wife, I said 'You know what? I don't care how much money that people might think I might have, I'm not gonna spend $17,000 on health insurance.’ That's what I spent last year not working," Dantley explained.

In addition to the health coverage, the job pays just under $15,000 a year.
