FARGO – Anthony "Buckets" Blakes of the Harlem Globetrotters presented the S.P.I.N program Friday to the Boys and Girls Club Fargo Youth Center.

Buckets said S.P.I.N stands for Some Playtime Is Necessary.

“That’s just to encourage kids to stay physically active for at least 60 minutes a day to fight childhood obesity,” said Buckets.

He got the kids to do some warm-up drills then showed them some tricks. Buckets is the Guinness World Record holder for the most basketball underhanded half-court shots in one minute. He made six.

The Harlem Globetrotters bring their show to Fargo on Wednesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. at Scheels Arena against the Washington Generals.
