The Harlem Globetrotters...aren't they fun to watch?
A few of the Globetrotters stopped by Toyota center to sign autographs, take a few pictures, and teach kiddos basketball tricks.
When Harlem returns to Houston for two shows in Jan. 2012, rookie TNT Maddox will be suiting up as the ninth woman to ever sport the red, white and blue.
"Not only do they allow me to continue to play basketball, but like I was saying - I get to be representation for all of these young ladies out here," Maddox said. "Maybe I can inspire someone to, you know, play basketball or reach any goal they're trying to achieve."
"Since 1986, you know, when Lynette Woodard [first female player in Harlem Globetrotters history] came out and played for the Globetrotters we want for TNT Maddox to be the same as she was," Fred "Curly" Neal, a Globetrotters legend, said.
“And maybe one day she'll be a Hall of Famer such as Lynette Woodard."
Hey guys, you don't want to face TNT on the basketball court because she's known as the dribbling wizard.
"Ever since I was a kid, I've been working on [my dribbling]. That's the first thing I started working on because you don't have to have a rim around to practice that," Maddox said.
"We're still gonna do our ambassador type of things with the kids, with the families, you know, in hospitals, in schools; wherever we can, "said Buckets, a Globetrotters scoring machine, who's name speaks for itself.
"And even here at the Toyota Center with Houston Rockets fans as well because the Houston Rockets fans are our fans as well."
It's always fun watching the Globetrotters show of a little razzle-dazzle.
