Harlem Globetrotters bring basketball wizardry to Northeast Mississippi

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – The World Famous Harlem Globetrotters entertained thousands of people at Tupelo’s Bancorpsouth Arena with their unique basketball skills and hijinks.

Many audience members became part of the show as the Globetrotters brought their “All New Fan Powered World Tour” to Northeast Mississippi for one show.

The Globetrotters took on the Washington Generals and brought their basketball wizardry and family entertainment to the court.

“We can go anywhere in the world, we’re always the home team, which is cool, one thing I do love about it is, we may not be able to speak the language real well in other countries but we always give that message across to our fans that if you come to see the Globetrotters we are going to leave you going home with a smile or something to remember about the Globetrotters, especially if you’ve never seen us before, it’s pretty cool,” said Harlem Globetrotter Scooter Christensen.

“Scooter’s” specialty is spinning the basketball on his nose, in fact he holds the Guinness World Record for that feat.
