Harlem Globetrotters Flight Time Interview


You gotta spin it fast. Here you go. Here you go.Catch this.Catch this.Catch this. All right, throw it up like this, throw it
up. oh there you go that was pretty good. Hey guys, this is Max from Sports Illustrated
kIds and I’m going to be doing an interview with Flight Time from the Harlem Globetrotters. He’s famous for his Hops but now he’s actually
famous because he’s on time with all his flights. Yeah, there you go I like that. At what age did you start playing basketball? Well I actually started playing basketball
at about 5 years old but the first time that I started playing organized basketball was
in 7th grade so I was 12 years old because I grew up in a small town of about 4,000 people
so we didn’t have like YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, we only had 7th grade through 12th
grade sports. When did you know you wanted to become a Harlem
Globetrotter? Well, I mean everybody’s story is different. I never knew that I wanted to be a Harlem
Globetrotter, it just kind of happened for me. One of my roommates after I graduated from
college he actually went to a Globetrotter game when I was working a regular job as a
personal trainer in a gym he came back from the game with a phone number for me and he
said you know, Herb, I think you can do exactly what these guys did tonight and I kind of
blew him off for a couple of weeks but a couple of weeks later I ended up sending a video
in to the Globetrotters and a few weeks later they invited me to their training camp. And now, after I sent that video in, I’ve
been doing it now for 17 years, I’ve been on the team longer than any other Globetrotter. I started in 1999. I’m the only Globetrotter left from the last
Millenium. Who is your favorite Globetrotter of all time? My favorite Globetrotter of all time was a
guy by the name of Keiron Sweet Pea Shine. He played with me for about 10 years, he was
actually about 2 years behind me, he played at the University of Memphis, but he was my
favorite because he always fun, he was a fan favorite, he was small, but he was one of
the best players on the team and people loved him and he was always professional and we
fed off of his energy.What’s your favorite part of being a Globetrotter? My favorite part of being a Globetrotter is
actually having the opportunity to do things like Sports Illustrated Kids, having the chance
to travel around the world, I’ve been to just over 85 countries in my 17 year career, I’ve
been to every state except for Alaska and I’m going there next month. Oh wow. Well, thank you so much for your time, I know
you have to go out to play. Good luck, and I’ll see you next time. This is Max signing off for Sports Illustrated. Hey! What’s up Max. Can you do that? I’m better than Handles. Handles can do it like me.
