That is former University of Cincinatti star and current Harlem Globetrotter Darnell Wilks with the truly impressive dunk during a Globetrotters game in Ecuador. In the USA there are breakaway rims and major arenas have another backboard set up in back to be wheeled out and put in place. In Ecuador… that could have been the end of the show. Thanks for coming everybody.
For your Thanksgiving evening entertainment, how about a trick shot video with Dude Perfect (you’ve seen them here before) and the Harlem Globetrotters. How you going to beat that? NFL football? Ha. (Okay, maybe that is better.)
In a serious effort/marketing move, the Harlem Globetrotters are making a pitch to sign LeBron & Dwyane Wade & offering ownership. They will offer 51 percent of revenue from licensed merchandise sales with no limit plus part ownership. Well, they haven’t lost since ’71.
Globetrotters are at least attempting it, they have contacted Wade & LeBron’s representatives.
It’s more marketing move than serious effort, but a clever one.
And before you ask — NBA rules prohibit players from being owners, so nobody can make that offer to LeBron. Because otherwise you know that would be on the table.
