Rock star Dave Matthews meets hoops star on Seattle streeton February 12, 2013 @ 11:08 am (Updated: 11:37 am - 2/12/13 )
Musician Dave Matthews was walking in the Wallingford neighborhood when he spotted a member of the world famous basetball troupe, the Harlem Globetrotters. Dizzy Grant was dressed in Globetroters warm up gear.
Matthews reportedly commented "is that really a Globetrotter?" To which Grant replied, Are you really Dave Matthews?" Yes and yes.
The two entertainers had a photo snapped, showing Matthews standing next to a smiling Grant, who is spinning a basketball on his finger.
According to the Harlem Globetrotters publicity director, Matthews told Grant about fond memories of watching the Harlem Globetrotters as a kid at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Grant was on his way to visit St. Benedict's School to give a talk on bullying.
The Globetrotters are playing four games in the Seattle area, starting this Friday.
