It is always such a fun time when the Harlem Globetrotters come to town! Needless to say, it is going to be a heck of a great time this weekend when the Globetrotters hit the Triad for TWO shows: Saturday evening at the Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Arena in Winston-Salem, and Sunday afternoon at the Greensboro Coliseum. Click here for tickets.
One of the stars of the Globetrotters stopped by iHeartMedia today to say hi. Meet Orlando "El Gato" Melendez! El Gato is from Puerto Rico and is the first ever Hispanic American to play for the Globetrotters. Prior to playing for the Gloetrotters, he attended UNC, where he appeared in the Final Four in both 1998 and 2000, and he had professional stints in Europe and Puerto Rico. As you can tell from my chat with him, he's really nice and really funny.
It was great meeting you, El Gato. We'll all be watching for you this weekend!
