Everyone needs a reason to smile, and today patients at the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital had something to smile about.
Harlem Globetrotter "Slick" Willie Shaw visited the young patients Friday afternoon to showcase his skills, take pictures, sign autographs, and teach the children a few fun tricks.
At 6'6", Shaw towered over everyone as he showed off his signature move, the two ball spin.
Shaw is a former starter at St. John's University, where he helped lead the team to an NIT Championship in 2003,
the same year Syracuse won the National Championship
. He still holds the school record for most career three-pointers.
Shaw will be back in Syracuse February 7th, when the Globetrotters make a stop at the Syracuse University Carrier Dome as part of their 2014 "Fans Rule" World Tour.
