Harlem Globetrotter makes 130-foot catwalk shot at old Maple Leaf Gardens

TORONTO, March 29, 2016 /CNW/ - To celebrate their arrival into Canada during their 90th year, Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blakes made an improbable shot from the catwalk at the old Maple Leaf Gardens to a hoop over 130-feet below.  It was the 2nd attempt ever tried.  WATCH (https://youtu.be/h6i24xpN9R0) – music and footage approved for broadcast (credit Harlem Globetrotters).

The Globetrotters Canadian tour brings games to 18 Canadian cities in six provinces.  Full schedule available at www.harlemglobetrotters.com/canada.

The Globetrotters were founded in 1926 – five years before Maple Leaf Gardens opened.  The complex is now Mattamy Athletic Centre.
