Nick Kyrgios must have felt like a kid in a candy store when he met with Torch George of the Harlem Globetrotters as part of a BB&T Atlanta Open promotional event.
The Australian is a massive fan of the Boston Celtics and he once jokingly told ATPTour.com “I’m LeBron James. I’m the best basketball player of the tennis players, hence I’m LeBron.”
Kyrgios is known for his trick shots on a tennis court, but how would he stand up against Torch George of the Harlem Globetrotters when it comes to trick shots in basketball?
See for yourself.

“It was a lot of fun. Obviously, basketball is a sport that I probably can’t live without. I’m always following it,” he told ATPTour.com.
“So to have someone like Torch come down, someone who has played in the WNBA, she’s amazing. She taught me some new tricks, which was really fun. It was awesome.”
And more from Kyrgios and George.
