Harlem Globetrotters Brought their B-Ball tricks to Philips Arena

This past Saturday afternoon my kids and I headed down to Phillips Arena to watch my favorite baskeball team, the Harlem Globetrotters!

They were up to their usual shenanigans and popular basketball player Special K was there again talking crap on the court, lol. They had fun games going on with fans, jokes played on the opposite team, it was something to see and we never miss it when they visit the Atlanta area.  CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE PICS AND THE COMPLETE STORY! www.TalkingWithTami.com
