Harlem Globetrotters are here and Jason Oliveira is getting a taste of what it must be like to play against them.The flair -- the skillful shots -- the hi jinx -- and that music there's no mistaking the Harlem Globetrotters after all these years -- 83 to be exact -- this talented group of traveling hoopsters can still pack an arena and leave fans of all ages with lasting memories

Buckets Blakes -- a star at the University of Wyoming before joining the Globetrotters a few years ago.

Is well aware of the responsibility he carries every time he dons the world famous red ... white and blue uniform.

Buckets says he spends on average six hours a day training but recently took time to give me a quick lesson.

It didn't quite work out as I would've liked I'll leave it to the professionals and you can see them for yourself at 7 o'clock at the Save Mart Center.
