The Harlem Globetrotters brought their new 4-point shot to Canada’s Sugar Beach to promote the Toronto leg of their North American tour.
Globetrotters Flight Time Lang and Wun “The Shot” Versher took 4-point shots – over water – from the charter vessel River Gambler to a basketball hoop positioned on Canada’s Sugar Beach. A crowd of 100 local school children gathered around the hoop and cheered the players as they both succeeded in making 4-point shots.
The always innovative globetrotters unveiled the 4-point shot, which is 10.67 meters (35 feet) from the basket and 3.66 meters (12 feet) beyond the NBA 3-point line, in 2010. Every game on the world famous basketball showmen’s 2011 North American Tour features the shot.
Following the shooting exhibition on Canada’s Sugar Beach, the school children joined the Globetrotters on board the River Gambler to learn about character education.
