The Harlem Globetrotters just couldn’t wait to show off their tricks at the newly renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
One of the team’s star players, Herbert “Flight Time” Lang, made a shot from 75 feet up on the Uniondale arena’s roof tossing it over its new metallic façade—then did it again backwards. Swoosh! There was nothing but net.
“This is the long distance shot from Long Island,” the bedazzling b-ball-handler extraordinaire said while showboating in a video of the back-to-back trick shots that the team posted Tuesday on YouTube.
Fans of NBC’s The Amazing Race may recognize Flight Time from seasons 15, 18 and 24 of the reality show competition. He came in second place—just short of wining the $1 million prize—his second time around.
This weekend marks the first time the Harlem Globetrotters will play Nassau Coliseum since December 2014, before it closed for extensive renovations. The arena reopened last week.
The Harlem Globetrotters are playing at NYCB Live, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, at 7 p.m. Friday, April 14. Tickets range in price from $22 to $158. The arena is located at 1255 Hempstead Tpke. in Uniondale. For more information, visit nycblive.com
