Globetrotters draft Tim Tebow and Wonder Woman

AP

If the minor league baseball thing doesn’t work out, Tim Tebow has a shot to make it in another sport.

Tebow was among the players “drafted” today by the Harlem Globetrotters, which serves mostly as a way to remind people the Harlem Globetrotters are still a thing.

(That’s not to demean their work. They’re the Patriots of basketball. Except with buckets of confetti instead of shards of Tom Brady’s cell phone.)

At any rate, the Globetrotters are doing this for attention, but because they’re cool and good and we remember them turning up on Gilligan’s Island, we’ll play along. In addition to Tebow, they also drafted actress Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Yankees rookie Aaron Judge, in addition to some basketball players we’ve honestly never heard of.

They’ve previously “drafted” sports celebrities including Tim Howard, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Usain Bolt, so it’s pretty good company.

“The Globetrotters have always tried to be creative when it comes to our draftees,” said Globetrotters director of player personnel and coach Sweet Lou Dunbar. “Having players who can electrify fans with high-flying ability is a tremendous trait, but they’ve got to go beyond that. Globetrotters need to be superstars off the court, as well, and we think we’ve scored a touchdown, hit a home run, and lassoed in the best in all those areas this year.”

Tebow, in case you’re wondering, is hitting .224 for the Columbia Fireflies, the Class A affiliate of the Mets. So you never know, he might be available.

    “Globetrotters refusal to draft Kaepernick reflects society’s failings towards Socialist-Americans” — PFT 6/21

    (And yes, that was for perpetuating the Brady phone lie)

    God knows ( no pun intended) that Wonder Woman has a more accurate arm then Timmy

    Would I pay money to see Gal Gadot play basketball? Yes. Yes I would.

    I’d never seen the globetrotters before, and saw them this year with my kids. They put on a really good show. I was surprised how entertained I was. I encourage everyone to go out and see them. About 10x cheaper than going to an NFL game, no commercial time outs, no drunk fans, just people having fun and laughing.

    Darin still hasn’t gotten over that Patriots beating his Panthers in Super Bowl XXXI.

    Wilt Chamberlain started his career with them. I think Tim Tebow should be able to surpass his numbers in a few years.

    Everyone should take the time to take their families to see the Globetrotters at least once. It’s great family fun, laugh out loud funny, and a real feel good time.

    “Darin still hasn’t gotten over that Patriots beating his Panthers in Super Bowl XXXI.”

    Neither have I, but we blame John Kasey, not Brady for that one.

    Same person I thought, no?

    They should draft Jerry Jones. He’d probably suit up for a series.

    The Steelers got whooped by Tom Tebow in the playoffs.

    I think that’s kind of hilarious 🙂
