The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters selected former Iowa State sharpshooter Naz Mitrou-Long with the third pick in their annual draft on Tuesday. He was taken one pick after New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge and one pick before Wonder Woman… I’m not kidding.

Mitrou-Long 15.1 points per game and was a second-team All-Big 12 selection during his senior season for the Cyclones. His 260 career 3-pointers is the second highest total in program history. He led the Big 12 in 3-pointers made during his last season in Ames.
The Globetrotters were founded 1926 and have dazzled crowds with their tricks ever since. I guess if Naz ends up playing for the team, he’ll likely never lose another game while doing battle against the Washington Generals.
I can safely say I did not anticipate ever writing a blog like this in my life.
