Fans can again vote on game-changing rules online at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule.

The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen rules:

• Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.

• Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.

• Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.

A roster with stars such as Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Hi-Lite Bruton, and Dizzy Grant – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu – will showcase ball handling, trick shots, high-flying dunks and more.
