The Harlem Globetrotters Zues came in to the studio to talk about the lastest appearance at the DECC and to play a little mini one on one with me. We talked about some of the new things the Globetrotters are up to, and what it was like to become a Harlem Globetrotter.

I was transformed into a kid when I was talking to Zues because I went and saw the Globetrotters at the DECC many times. I still have my programs from the games. The best part is the Globetrotters have changed with the times. Breaking beariers and also visiting schools talking about drugs and bullying.

The Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating 90 years in existence and are coming to the DECC Thursday March 24th. Tickets are available at the DECC box office.

You can also buy tickets at the and while you are there you can check out their store and what they are up to. The thing I would like you to check out is THE GREAT ASSIST,  according to their website:

The Globetrotters are pledging to spread 100 million smiles over the next 10 years with smiles, sportsmanship and service.

  • The Great Assist initiative will see the team leave its mark in communities across North America with acts of kindness and goodwill. Some examples include bringing schools messages of bullying prevention, character and physical fitness, visiting children’s hospitals, lending a hand after natural disasters, helping build homes for the needy and volunteering at soup kitchens.
  • As part of the launch of The Great Assist initiative, TV personality Robin Roberts was named just the 10th Honorary Harlem Globetrotter in the team’s storied history, joining the likes of Henry Kissinger, Nelson Mandela and Pope Francis, who was honored at the Vatican in May 2015. The prestigious Honorary Harlem Globetrotter accolade recognizes an individual of extraordinary character and achievement who has made an everlasting mark on the world. Robin Roberts has provided inspiration for millions, as she publicly battled life-threatening health issues (breast cancer and myelodysplasia syndromes).
  • The Great Assist was launched on Oct. 6, as the Globetrotters performed before a multitude of excited fans on a special basketball court in the heart of New York City’s Times Square.

Here's the game we played in the KOOL studio.
