Skiles hopes are still high Anyone remember Leon the Barber? Armygirl? congoman? He was the legendary heckler who would sit behind the Pistons bench and drive the home team players and coaches nuts. He was a homer who had no problem hating on the home team. I remember reading that he helped drive Dick Vitale crazy at Cobo Arena. Some consider him the greatest heckler in basketball history (Bill Walton). Players would actually try to become his friend so he wouldn't scream at them all game. I think he passed away a few years ago.
