Answer:  HEIGHT OF HI$ CAREER

(Nice long answer, huh?!  There was plenty to like about this Jumble.  None of the clue words seem to be new.  “Shrank” is not on my latest soft copy, nor the latest hard capy of the ralis95 clue word database, but I seem to remember seeing it in a Jumble sometime in the past few months.  Since my most recent is from 12/31/13, I think it’s time ralis95 sent me an updated version!  I’ll have to email him a formal request.  All of the jumblings appeared to be new though.  I had a tough time with “turnip” and “sicken”.  The others came immediately for me.  The answer letter layout was very tricky.  It really took me a while to figure out the answer.  My first impression was that the two middle words were going to be OF THE.  And, I also thought that one of the six-letter words was going to be CHARGE.  I couldn’t do anything with RISIEH though.  It took me a few minutes to get past my prejudice, but eventually I saw “HEIGHT”.  Then “OF HIS”.  With the remaining letters I got “CAREER”.  I think the cartoon helped me see “HEIGHT”.  I wasn’t expecting a basketball themed Jumble in August.  It kind of threw me.  But, it was a great cartoon and a challenging Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
