"Fans Rule" During Harlem Globetrotters Atlanta Stop

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

You've whistled their theme song and you've tried a basketball spin or two, but nobody can match the pure skill and entertainment of the Harlem Globetrotters.

The talented team is making a stop in Atlanta on Saturday, March 15 as part of the 2014 "Fans Rule" tour. Before they play Philips Arena and Gwinnett Center, though -- team member Buckets Blakes thrilled some local kids during a series of "goodwill appearances" at local schools. Blakes is a 6'2" player from Arizona, and apparently boasts one of the very best half court "granny shots" around!

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken (who is not 6'2" -- in case you're wondering) spent the morning trying to learn a thing or two from Buckets Blakes with the students at Centennial Place Elementary in Atlanta. Did it work? Click the videos above to find out!

    We've all been tempted to buy that extra toy, or give those extra few dollars to our kids to buy something on impulse...but are those the best habits to pass along?
