John Brisker played tough on and off the court. No stranger to fisticuffs, few people would try to test him in a fight. The University of Toldeo graduate played for several teams in the (defunct) American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association. After leaving basketball, he formed an import-export business and would travel overseas. He was last heard from in the country of Uganda which was ruled by the ruthless leader Idi Amin. Amin was responsible for over three hundred thousand of murders. Did Brisker actually meet the dreaded dictator or did he run afoul of other people in Amin’s government?
