The Shot's Story

Wun “The Shot” Versher is one of the greatest shooters in team history – the 4-point shot is well within his range – and has been a part of some of the organization’s most memorable and historical moments.

Wun (pronounced: Wahn) was part of the contingent that visited Nelson Mandela and the South African people in 1996 and 1997 and named Mandela an Honorary Harlem Globetrotter, was part of the group that visited the Vatican City in Rome in 2000 to name Pope John Paul II an Honorary Harlem Globetrotter and was on hand during the Globetrotters’ induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.

He has also appeared with the Globetrotters on popular television programs, such as “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “EXTRA,” and “Access Hollywood.” He even taught some ball handling moves to pop superstar Justin Bieber before a television appearance in Hollywood.

In his spare time, he enjoys refinishing and restoring antiques, like furniture, clocks and cars. He tells kids, “You can do whatever you want, but be prepared to work hard for it.”
