Showboat Jackson struts to halfcourt and ducks under the volleyball net stationed there. He glances up to appraise the height of the gym's ceiling and notes the unconventional distance between midcourt and the hoop.
This stuff, the Globetrotters don't deal with.
Satisfied with the court's dimensions, Jackson turns away from the basket, his back pressed against the volleyball net, and flings a red, white and blue basketball one-handed over his shoulder.
The ball soars about 40 feet through the air, knocks off the backboard and falls into the hoop.
Jackson smiles broadly and points at a rolling camera. "First take," he said.
