Today was a BIG day! Not only was it Dana’s birthday, but the Harlem GlobeTrotters were in studio, and lets just say…we had a ball!! (see what I did there..?!)
In the Guest Chair:
Harlem GlobeTrotters, Buckets Blakes and El Gato Melendez joined us in studio this morning! The extremely talented (and extremely tall) players dished on what it’s like to be a GlobeTrotter, breaking world records, and how they got their nicknames. You can see Buckets and El Gato in Atlanta this weekend at Philips Arena and next weekend at Infinite Energy Arena! Get your tickets HERE.
