The Harlem Globe Trotters are back in Bangor.

The team christened the parquet floor of the brand new Cross Insurance Center Friday.

TV5′s own Jackie de Tore even suited up for this one, playing as a member of the “Elite”.

Hundreds came out to take in the performance, known the world over.

Earlier this year, members of the team visited North Korea as personal guests of supreme leader Kim Jong Un.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman served as a good will ambassador with the team.

The players say, although tensions may be high between the two countries, the joy basketball brings to children can transcend cultural barriers.
