The Harlem Globetrotters are coming back to Boston, and taking their trick shots to new heights.
Following up on last year’s long-range swish from the TD Garden rafters, two members of the legendary exhibition basketball team, Julian “Zeus” McClurkin and Tay “Firefly” Fisher, visited another New England sports landmark: Gillette Stadium. And after being shown around the Patriots’ trophy room by Robert Kraft, they took to the field — and the stadium concourse and the upper deck — to hit all manner of impressively deep shots.
Their antics even featured an appearance from a goat, as opposed to “The GOAT.”
“Zeus, I was talking about Tom Brady,” Fisher said.
Classic mix up.
The Globetrotters will be back in their environment — the basketball court — in Boston on Dec. 26 for a 1 p.m. game at TD Garden.
