Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Binghamton residents were star struck after meeting a Harlem Globetrotter on Thursday night.

Anthony "Buckets" Blakes smiled and signed autographs at a Meet and Greet at Burger Mondays.

People of all ages lined up to get a signed picture and to stand next to #15.

Buckets said he likes touring with the team, but the best part of being a Harlem Globetrotter is the fans.

"When they see a globetrotter they always smile, so that's the best part of my job," Buckets said.

The Harlem Globetrotters will be at Veterans Memorial Arena on April 4 at 7 p.m
