“I’ve never been back here in City Hall,” said Kenney. “I’ve been here for 25 years and I didn’t even know this place existed.”
In a video, courtesy of the Harlem Globetrotters, the mayor can be seen throwing the ball to Swish.
“A lot of tricky things have gone on at City Hall, and hopefully this shot will be one of them,” said Mayor Kenney as he prepared to hand off the ball.
Swish then throws the ball through a window and into a hoop for a live audience in the courtyard.READ MORE: 2 Dead, Including Pittsgrove Township School Bus Driver, After Salem County Bus Crash
“I feel amazing,” said Swish. “I love Philly.”
Young is only the 14th female in the Globetrotters’ history.
The Globetrotters are in Philadelphia preparing for 10 games in the area, including three at Wells Fargo Center March 4 and March 5. As a thank you to the city, the Harlem Globetrotters will donate 50 tickets for kids from the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia to see their game live.
