Harlem Globetrotters To Visit The Southland This Weekend
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The world famous Harlem Globetrotters will be in the Southland this weekend!
Prior to their big show, player Scooter Christensen, who holds the Guinness World Record for the longest ball spin on your nose – 5.1 seconds, visited CBS2 This Morning.
The Globe Trotters will be performing Sat., Feb. 15 at 1 and 7 p.m. at the Honda Center, STAPLES Center on Sun. Feb. 16 at 12:30 and 5:45 p.m. and Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario on President’s Day – Mon., Feb. 17 at 2 p.m.
Their Southland visit is part of their 2014 Fans Rule World Tour which allows spectators to choose new game-changing rules they want to see in their hometowns.
The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:
o Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.
o Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.
o Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.
