TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Harlem Globetrotters are bringing jumps, tricks and some serious basketball spinning fun back to Tucson.

Globetrotter Buckets Blakes joined us on Fox 11 to talk about their upcoming show at McKale Center.

He also spoke about his recent North American record set for highest shot ever made. See it HERE.

When Buckets and the other Globetrotters aren't taking their skills around the world, they're reaching out to kids and community members. Buckets spoke of his current anti-bullying campaign he's working to spread to Tucson's children.

You can catch the Harlem Globetrotters Sunday, April 9 at 2 p.m. at McKale Center: 1721 E. Enke Drive.
