Watch this Harlem Globetrotter Nail a Shot from the TD Garden Rafters
Well, this is incredible.
Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blakes showed off his superhuman skills and made history Wednesday when he drained a shot from all the way up in the TD Garden rafters.
“23 banners hang from the rafters of the TD Garden between the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins… but they’ve never seen this before!” the Globetrotters wrote in a Facebook post that’s turning heads today.
According the Garden, the feat was a first. “It’s our understanding nobody has attempted a shot from up there,” says spokesman Eric Nemeth. The catwalk is 95 feet in the air.
Buckets has a reputation for making impossible shots from extraordinary heights. In December, he broke the record for highest-ever shot in North America when he sunk this one from 583 feet up at San Antonio’s Tower of the Americas.
“That’s what we do, we get buckets,” he says in the Boston video. “Everywhere.”
The wise-cracking, stunt-performing team is playing at the Garden March 5 and March 11.
