The Harlem Globetrotters Back In Philly Performing Incredible Stunts at City Hall

Last year I got this shot of the Mayor and the Harlem Globetrotters at City Hall,  to promote their upcoming stint at Wells Fargo Center and it landed on the cover of Metro Philadelphia. This year the stunt went beyond balancing two basketballs on a couple of fingers. The PR of the Wells Fargo Center sent us a video

Globetrotters

In the 116 year history of City Hall in Philadelphia, the video below shows a first – a trick shot with the Mayor and the Harlem Globetrotters.  Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney trekked up four flights of stairs with a basketball in hand and gave a pass to West Philly native Bria “Swish” Young – only the 14th female in the Globetrotters’ history.  Swish turned and shot the ball through a window and into a hoop for a live audience in the courtyard.  The Globetrotters are in Philadelphia preparing for 10 games in the area, including three at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5.  The video is approved for media (courtesy Harlem Globetrotters).

 

This is incredible!!

 

s a thank you to the City of Philadelphia and the Mayor’s office, the Harlem Globetrotters will donate 50 tickets for kids from the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia to see their game live.

Swish is in her rookie season with the Globetrotters after graduating from Philadelphia University.  She joined her teammate Zeus McClurkin in the video. 

The Globetrotters will play a total of 10 games in the Philadelphia area starting Friday, March 3.  In addition to games at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, March 4 at 12 p.m. and Sunday, March 5 at 12 p.m. and 5 p.m., the Globetrotters will bring their tour to Trenton, Delaware, Atlantic City, Temple University, Allentown, and Reading.
