Scooter Christensen

There’s family, and then there’s family away from your family. That’s how Scooter Christensen describes his Globetrotter team-mates. “I consider the guys on the team my brothers,” he says. He was introduced to basketball at the age of five. He played football (soccer) too, but when he started growing faster than most of the other kids he began to concentrate solely on basketball in eighth grade. After winning a state championship and team MVP honours in high school, Scooter went on to lead the University of Montana to the NCAA tournament in 2002. He is one of just three players in the Grizzlies’ history to finish the season with most assists three years in a row and is also second on their all-time assist list. Scooter didn't need any assistance on 12 November 2015 when he broke the Guinness World Record for the longest time spinning a basketball on his nose (7.7 seconds), smashing the previous record of 5.2 seconds. Scooter has also appeared on popular TV shows like The Bachelorette and GAC's Top 20 Countdown.
