It's tricks, fun, and silliness at the Ford Center when the Harlem Globetrotters hit the court this Friday.

At least one Globetrotter is already here. Dizzy Grant stopped by East Heights Elementary in Henderson this morning with a more serious message.

The basketball jokester talked about the ABC's of anti-bullying: action, bravery and compassion. The message helps kids learn how to support one another, and how they can work to reduce bullying.

Even with a serious message, Dizzy used his basketball skills to help deliver it home, bringing kids like 4th grader Abby Roy up for some games.

"It was really cool," said Roy. "I was a little nervous. My heart was beating really fast but it was really fun."

The Globetrotters hit the court at the Ford Center this Friday at 7 p.m.
