Chris "Handles" Franklin has played basketball in 69 countries during his seven-year career as a Harlem Globetrotters star.
Next month, Australia will become number 70. The 40-year-old ball-handling genius will be a major attraction when the team plays in Australia for the first time in nearly 10 years, including at Perth Arena on October 19.
"We play to win every single night, but we just do it in great fashion," Franklin said. "We pride ourselves on being able to put smiles on faces."
Yesterday he kicked off a promotional tour at the WA Basketball Centre, where he and teammate Alex "Moose" Weekes, 28, showed off some moves. Weekes promised to put on a show next month. "You can expect high-flying action (and) great family entertainment," he said.Tickets for the event are available via Ticketek.
