The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:

  • Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they pass among each other.  The player whom is wearing the jersey  receives double points on made baskets.
  • Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team.  When a team scores, a teammate may enter the  game.  When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.
  • Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot.   If the team           makes the trick shot, they earn five points.  If they miss, the other team receives five points.

 

With a roster showcasing stars such as Special K Daley, Big Easy LoftonFlight Time LangHi-Lite Bruton and Dizzy Grant – plus female stars TNT MaddoxT-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind family show features mesmerizing ball handling, an assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and precise timing – all with an array of comedy guaranteed to entertain the young and the young at heart.
