SOUTH BUFFALO (WKBW) The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to the First Niagara Center on January 31st, but one star took some extra time to speak to a local school and teach some tricks in the process.

"Slick Willie" spoke to the students of Notre Dame Academy in South Buffalo, preaching a message against bullying.

"As we all know, bullying is a big situation, a big issue with our youth. And I think a lot of kids, I want to raise the awareness so they no how to handle it," Slick said.

He then took the time to teach some of the kids some tricks, as part of the famous Harlem Globetrotters Magic Circle.

But Channel 7's Jason Gruenauer simply couldn't help himself, and got the chance to shoot some hoops with the Globetrotter.

Check out the video to see his story, plus the Good Morning crew learns some tricks as well.
