Why, no, we do not ever tire of the annual promotional hype surrounding an appearance in these parts by the Harlem Globetrotters.
Every year one comes and tries a trick shot, and every year we’re blown away, particularly since we know of at least one player for a local NBA team who can’t seem to make a simple free throw. Of course, we have no idea how many shots were taken to get the trick shot to hit net.
This year it’s a shot from a roller coaster.
Two years ago, it was a shot from atop US Bank Stadium. Simple.
This is the second time the Mall of America has been the scene of the shot. 2016:
The Globetrotters are in Duluth on Thursday night, Rochester on Friday, and the Twin Cities on the weekend.
