The roster includes male and female stars like Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, TNT Lister and Ace Jackson, and the most entertaining team in basketball plans to reveal a 4-point line, which will be 6 feet, 3 inches behind the NBA’s 3-point line.

A press release from the arena promises “incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction.”

After the game, Globetrotters will sign autographs and take photos with fans.
