    Default U Mary's Devan Douglas - Harlem Globetrotters Rookie Announcements

    As the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters look toward the 91st season of entertaining fans, six new players will be making their debuts for the team when the 2017 World Tour tips-off on Dec. 26.

    The rookie class of Jumpin’ Joe Ballard, Clutch Ball, Beast Douglas, Hoops Green, Jet Rivers, and Swish Young, will become the latest stars to join the legacy of Globetrotters who have endeared themselves to millions worldwide.

    “Having these six outstanding players is only going to make the Harlem Globetrotters better,” said Globetrotters legend, Sweet Lou Dunbar, the team’s director of player personnel and head coach. “The Globetrotters have entertained and thrilled crowds worldwide for over nine decades. As we begin our 91st consecutive season, the presence of each one of these talented rookies will continue to help us put smiles on the faces of every fan who comes to watch one of our games in 2017 and beyond.”

    Joining Ball in the Globetrotters rookie air show will be Devan “Beast” Douglas, another prolific dunker throughout his scholastic and collegiate career. An explosive 6-foot-3 player, who was a sensation at the University of Mary, Douglas was crowned the 2016 College Slam Dunk Champion in Houston last Final Four weekend and was drafted by the Globetrotters in June. He says that winning the nationally-televised competition was one of the highlights of his playing career. The Davenport, Iowa, native played high school ball with current NFL star David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals.

    I will ask it again. How does a one team draft work exactly?

    I think you're forgetting the Washington Generals.

    One of the leaders of the Globetrotters is "Ant" Atkinson. If that name sounds familiar, it should...



    Actually watching them on ESPN2 right now, that's what jogged my memory about this thread
