The Harlem Globetrotters are known around the world for their cool basketball tricks and fun stunts. In the past, we’ve seen them team up with NHL teams, like the Calgary Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning.
San Jose Sharks defenceman Brenden Dillon doesn’t exactly resemble a Harlem Globetrotter for his simple and smart play, but that doesn’t mean he can’t fool around with the Globetrotters and come out with an innovative shot that combines hockey and basketball together.
Dillon and Globetrotters’ star Dizzy English teamed up for the Shark-trotter trick shot at the SAP Center, which is essentially launching a basketball from the top of a Zamboni from just inside the blue line and into a basketball net.
Add another assist to Dillon’s point totals with that apple!
The two also messed around by dribbling a basketball with a hockey stick.
The 27-year-old New Westminster, B.C. native also announced a brand new street hockey court for the kids at Sakamoto Elementary school in San Jose recently.
In 39 games with the Sharks this season, the former Seattle Thunderbird and Dallas Star has 1 goal and 7 assists in 39 games, and who knows, maybe Dillon has a new trick up his sleeve that he’ll be debuting soon out on the ice. The Globetrotters will show off their skills at the SAP Center on three didfferent occasions this month, starting out on 14th.
