Canada's 13-year old basketball prodigy dunks with Harlem Globetrotter


Elijah Fisher, a 13-year old basketball prodigy from Toronto, received a special surprise today from Harlem Globetrotters' star Zeus McClurkin at Crestwood Preparatory College in North York, ON.  In the video below, Zeus interrupted Elijah’s lunch period, traded dunks with him in the gymnasium, and held an assembly about character education for Elijah’s classmates.  Elijah is the top North American player from the class of 2023, according to many scouts.


At 6-feet 8-inches, Zeus is in Toronto preparing for games throughout Ontario and holds two Guinness World Records, including the most dunks in a minute with 16. Elijah, who stands at 6-feet 6-inches, made an attempt at that record with Zeus, but came up short.  When Elijah told him he would break the record some day, Zeus told him jokingly, “don’t wait until I can’t dunk anymore.  You need to break it tomorrow.”

Zeus commended Elijah for having a great attitude and work ethic off the court, as described by his coaches and teachers.  During his visit, Zeus presented the Globetrotters’ C.H.E.E.R. for Character assembly for Crestwood Prep’s 7th and 8th graders.  The program focuses on Cooperation, Healthy mind & body, Effort, Enthusiasm, and Responsibility – all areas where Elijah excels.
