Big Easy's Story

Technically, Big Easy shares his nickname with his hometown of New Orleans. But since he's 6'9", you can probably figure out the other reason people call him that. The Globetrotters say that Big Easy's the funniest guy on the team, but that might just be because he's also the one who talks the most. Just ask Flight Time Lang -- he has had to listen to Big Easy for three runs on "The Amazing Race," during which they finished as high as second.

Big Easy is also a world record holder, owning the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record for the farthest basketball hook shot – 61 feet 4 inches – nearly six feet better than the old mark of 55 feet 9 inches.  In October 2013, he was inducted into the Southeastern Louisiana University Athletics Hall of Fame.
