The Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating 90 years of sports and entertainment. And now they are welcoming one new member for the day: ME!

After joining my teammates Cheese, Moose, and Hawk to warm up with layups, free throws, three-pointers, and (attempted) half court shots, it was time to go for a slam dunk. And, finally, the team's signature tricks.

As they embark on a tour across hundreds of cities around the world, the Globetrotters are building on a legacy that even led them to Pope Francis earlier this year.

The Harlem Globetrotters are making appearances in the New York area. They will hit Manhattan, Brooklyn, White Plains, Hempstead, Newark, and Piscataway.
