If you’re in a squabble with your spouse, Cavs forward Jamario Moon has the solution: Go see the Harlem Globetrotters at The Q April 12. “The Globetrotters are relationship fixers,” says Moon, who played with the team from 2004 to 2005. “You could be having a bad day arguing with your husband or wife, but when you bring your family to a Globetrotter game with all the silly stuff and tricks, you’re just laughing.” As for those tricks, Moon shared his three favorites from his days wearing red, white and blue.
➜ The Play The Weave
WHAT HAPPENS The team starts a series of passes at half court. The point guard then breaks out and bounces the ball off the back of another player before catching it and throwing an alley-opp. “I would have to go dunk it,” Moon says.

➜ The Play Slide Pass
WHAT HAPPENS The point guard dribbles through the defense as a teammate sets a screen. The point guard then slides between his teammate’s legs before passing across the court to Moon. “I would find some kind of way to finish it.”

➜ The Play Football Skills
WHAT HAPPENS Everyone lines up at the free-throw line in a football stance. “The quarterback puts people in motion and then yells, ‘Rewind,’ ” Moon says. The players then do everything they did in reverse. “It’s crazy and they do a lot of silly things.”
