Photos: Harlem Globetrotter dribbles basketball across Ben Franklin Bridge

    It’s “Globetrotter Week” in Philadelphia and true to form, the team isn’t arriving quietly.

    The team is gearing up for some weekend games in town and to kick things off, Herbert “Flight Time” Lang was on the Ben Franklin Bridge Tuesday afternoon dribbling and spinning basketballs.

    Even after the team leaves Philly, a part of the City of Brotherly Love will travel with the Harlem Globetrotters. The team recently welcomed Fatima “TNT” Maddox, a Temple University grad and only the ninth woman to ever play on the team.
