Harlem Globetrotter Hammer Harrison arrived in Omaha in unique fashion.
On Wednesday, Hammer dribbled and spun basketballs across the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge to mark his arrival. He stopped over the Missouri River on the Nebraska/Iowa state line to dribble in both states at once.
Check out his moves in this video clip:
In the video, you’ll see that Hammer is spinning the Globetrotters’ traditional red, white and blue ball, and the other a specially designed pink basketball to signify the Globetrotters’ tour-long campaign to bring awareness to breast cancer.
Hammer also made a stop Wednesday morning at the Nebraska Medical Center and spent time with fourth grader Isaac Gibson of Shenandoah, Iowa, who is undergoing chemotherapy there. (Photo courtesy of The Nebraska Medical Center’s Facebook page.)
