The Harlem Globetrotters, who play at the TD Garden this weekend, kept busy yesterday by entertaining school kids across the city. In the morning, they gathered at the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center of Boston to teach local personalities how to spin a basketball, dribble like a pro, and make a four-point shot — a play invented by the Globetrotters. Their audience was made up of kids from the Ralph Waldo Emerson School in Roxbury, which is set to close at the end of the school year. Later, the team visited Harvard University’s Malkin Athletic Center to talk to students from the Martin Luther King Jr. School in Cambridge.
