Part basketball skills, part comedy, and part pure excellence, the Harlem Globetrotters have been entertaining basketball fans all over the world for nearly a century. A team of 31 players make up a 'cast' of guards, forwards, and showmen, making each game an event that all ages enjoy.
With games coming up in the Vancouver area this very weekend, star player Bucket Blakes arrived to the city via HeliJet, and had a few friends from a local youth basketball team join him for the ride. Flying over the scenic city of Vancouver, Canada, you'll see Bucket spinning basketballs, chatting with the kids, and commenting on how "Vancouver's a beautiful city" and how he and his teammates "talk about it all the time when [they] come here to play."
Games will occur at Victoria's Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre this Thursday, at Abbotsford Centre on Friday and Sunday, and at Vancouver's very own Pacific Coliseum on Saturday.
