Chateau,

Great pic. Poker fanboys are going to love Tiffany and Maria together. There could be some fireworks between those two because both tend to be Type A personalities.
Just here to visit.

Could this person be a contestant.  This could also be crew, but not necessarily.

I'm new to this forum, but was looking for some awnsers to what I thought I saw at LAX today...and found here I was correct.  I saw about 3 or 4 teams in Terminal 4...I won't post anything redundant, but I did see a team of two tall guys running towards me...they were wearing blue shirts that said "Harlem Globetrotters" on the front - camera and audio guys trying to keep up!  I was in a gift shop with the two female poker players...  Just thought I would add this to the mix!

Blue team are probably the 11th team in the starting lineup and the poker players as we know have already been identified!

This might have something to do with it:

The Harlem Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism, theater, and comedy.

Created by Abe Saperstein in 1926 in Chicago, Illinois, the team adopted the name Harlem because of its connotations as a major African-American community. Over the years they have played more than 20,000 exhibition games in 118 countries.

Brother Bones's whistled version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" is the team's signature song. Globie has been their mascot since 1993.

The team have the right build and there clothes match:

The basket ball team is included on the website, we could rat them out!  :yess:

I've seen the Globetrotters in action, and they do wear primarily blue, with bits of red and white.

When you say tall, how tall is tall (roughly)?

And would you say they looked like Basketballers, or just fans of the globetrotters?

Heights are included on the Globetrotters website  :yess: and if we got photos of them from Chateau we could find them thanks to the website!

After seeing the Starting Line pic, I thought it was the 11th team as well.  I specifically remember on guy bout 6'3" and the other much taller - say around 6'9"!

The heights i'm certainly guessing on! But setting courtside at Mavs games, I can tell you they were pro ball height.  As far as identifying...i'm terrible at that.. my flight TO lax i was on a flight with LL Cool J, and had to ask someone who he was...  i know..terrible..  I knew he was somebody...just wasn't sure who!!

Nothing on the globetrotters website about any players being missing for upcoming tours.

This just got interesting.


Position: G
Date of Birth: 08/01/1976
Height: 6' 3"   Weight: 195 lbs
College Experience: Centenary College (La.) '98


Biography:

The Harlem Globetrotters’ travels don’t leave much down time for the players, but when he has a chance to relax, Flight Time Lang is always watching sports on TV, right?  Nope.  He is a self-proclaimed reality TV junkie.

The first “Survivor” got him hooked, and he’s followed other shows like “Making the Band” and “Big Brother,” but his favorite is “Flavor of Love.”  “At first, I thought to myself, ‘Am I the only person watching this?’ But once we get on the bus, the rest of guys jump in, and we’re talking about every episode.”
