Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot.
Who’s up today: Harlem Globetrotter Bull Bullard, as seen from the catwalk lying across the basket in this catwalk view in the DCU Center, Worcester, March 17, 2013.
Bullard: “We call that ‘planking’ on the rim. It is goaltending a little bit. But we’re about smiles and laughter. I love to see the smiles on kids’ faces when I come out here and do my job every night. I’m thinking unusual, amazing, unexpected.
“As a Harlem Globetrotter, we are always trying to bring new stuff to the game. This is something that nobody has ever seen before and that’s what we are trying to do. We’re trendsetters, we’re role models, everybody here is having a good time.
“It’s not hard to get up there. That’s my resting time, when I get up on the rim. When I’m up there, I’m sleeping. The funniest thing that happens out here is when that rim squeaks, I see the look on my teammates’ faces, and they think I’m going to fall or something.”
