Video: Cleveland Cavaliers Hire Homeless Man

Bottom line: On the court the Cleveland Cavaliers are having a rough time trying to bounce back from Bron's decision. The organization is still making waves in the community though.

Ted Williams, who was previously homeless held up a sign every day telling the world about his "Golden Radio Voice." A random, pulled over to record what he probably thought would be nothing more than a mark on 2011's most infamous viral list, and found Williams wasn't lying.

Apparently the Cleveland Cavaliers took notice after the Columbus Dispatch featured the man in the paper they and offered him a job and a house. Williams was on a local radio station, WNCI exclaiming "The Cleveland Cavaliers just offered me a full-time job and a house! A house! A house!"

He also added "I've been out there about a year; I just didn't know anything like this would ever happen. There's so many words. I've already been compared to Susan Boyle. I'm just so happy."

It's unclear what position the Cavaliers have offered Williams, but it is an incredible story of redemption after Williams threw his career away years ago admittedly due to drugs and alcohol.

"Just to get back to some normalcy and responsibility. If I can get a job, whether it's a $25,000 or even $18,000, I'd be happy. At least I know God has me where he wants me."

Video after THE's crazy.

Clinton Coley is a 22-year old comedian making a name for himself in his hometown of Philadelphia. Coley is an eager newcomer addicted to the spotlight, the stage and having all eyes on him. In the summer of 2010, Coley decided that Philadelphia was not the place to get him to his dreams, so he picked up and moved to New York City to tackle the toughest crowd and beat the best competition in America. The funny man loves what he does not only for the attention, but also because of comedy’s healing effects. In his own words, “Comedy is the best medicine,” and through his comedy, Mr. Coley wants to impact lives.

Clinton has always had the ability to make people laugh; however he didn't decide to pursue to a career in comedy until he wanted to impress a girl. And it was one of the best decisions of his life-in his attempts to woo, he unknowingly found his passion. On February 7, 2007, Coley hopped on stage in front of an audience for the first time, and was booed. He continued to get booed for eight consecutive weeks; however his tough skin, willpower, and passion wouldn't allow him to walk away from what he was he born to do. On the ninth week, the audience laughed, and from that week on, anytime Clinton hits the stage he leaves his audiences roaring.

Coley’s quick wit, charisma and storytelling has given him a buzz and high accolades in the Philadelphia and New York City comedy circuit. Clinton’s honest on-stage personality keeps him busy performing at colleges and comedy clubs around the United States. Coley has been lucky enough to work with comedians Kevin Hart, D.L. Hughley, TuRae, Bruce Bruce, Sommore and Spank. Who all have stamped Coley as the next big comedian to hail from the “City of Brotherly Love.”

At the end of it all, Clinton simply wants people to be able to recite his jokes and it brings a smile to their faces. He wants people to say, “That was one hilarious dude. He made an impact on my life.” He plans on working non-stop until he is known as the Greatest Comedian of All Time.

Most recently, Clint has entered BET's The Game Tribute Competition.


Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc

Kappa Alpha Psi was founded on the campus of Indiana University on January 5, 1911. The Fraternity's fundamental purpose is achievement.

Early in this century, African-American students were actively dissuaded from attending college. Formidable obstacles were erected to prevent the few who were enrolled from assimilating into co-curricular campus life. This ostracism characterized Indiana University in 1911, thus causing Elder W. Diggs, Ezra D. Alexander, Byron K. Armstrong, Henry T. Ash, Marcus P. Blakemore, Paul W. Caine, George W. Edmonds, Guy L. Grant, Edward G. Irvin and John M. Lee to form Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, which remains the only Greek letter organization with its 1st Chapter on the University's campus.

The founders sought a formula that would immediately raise the sights of black collegians and stimulate them to accomplishments higher than they might have imagined.

Fashioning achievement as it's purpose, Kappa Alpha Psi began uniting college men of culture, patriotism and honor in a bond of fraternity.

Happy 100th Anniversary to the Honorable Men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.
