Alaska Trick Shots | Harlem Globetrotters | Hawk Thomas

Those Harlem Globetrotters are always making things harder on themselves. The exhibition basketball team is like the anti-San Antonio Spurs, ignoring fundamentals in favor of flare, flash and style. Despite their tendency toward hardwood theatrics, the team has amassed an impressive record against a decades-long slate of pushover opponents. They expect to continue their winning streak during three games in Alaska over the weekend, playing in Anchorage on Friday and Saturday and in Fairbanks Sunday.Not content to just humiliate opponents on the court, Globetrotter Jonathan "Hawk" Thomas decided to wage some psychological warfare against his Alaska opponents before this weekend's games by ignoring the court altogether, posting video of himself sinking two improbable shots from atop the scoreboard and roof of the Alaska Airlines Center at the University of Alaska Anchorage.No word yet if Thomas will be positioned on the scoreboard when he comes off the bench for Friday's and Saturday's games.The Harlem Globetrotters will play at the Alaska Airlines Center at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday, and at Fairbanks' Carlson Center at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available at the arena box offices, or at harlemglobetrotters.com.
