Pope Francis Is Now an Honorary Harlem Globetrotter and Baller Cum Laude

The Harlem Globetrotters visited the Pope, which, I must confess, is a fantastic sentence to read and/or write. 

According to The Associated Press (h/t Ball Don’t Lie’s Dan Devine), the leader of the Catholic Church met with New York City’s flashiest global ambassadors Wednesday in St. Peter’s Square. 

The team showed Pope Francis how to balance a spinning ball on one hand. 

They also made His Holiness an honorary Globetrotter, which, to my knowledge, makes Pope Francis the first member of the Vatican City archdiocese to be dubbed a titular baller.

Francis appears to have been waiting for this moment for some time. Just throw him the ball and watch what he do with it.

No word on whether the Los Angeles Clippers will extend a 10-day contract to His Holiness in the hopes of shoring up the point guard position.
