Why See The Harlem Globetrotters?

The legendary Globetrotters!

The Harlem Globetrotters have achieved an almost mythic status in the world of American sports. Even someone with zero interest in basketball knows their name and recognizes the iconic red, blue and white kit, whether it be on film, in real life, or the old cartoon series!

They began as the Savoy Big Five, a basketball team founded in 1926 by London-born Abe Saperstein, before settling on their famous moniker a year later. They were in fact neither from Harlem nor globetrotting (well, not yet anyway!) but Saperstein felt it lent the team an air of mystique. While initially starting out in competitive competitions, the team soon starting adding in extra flair and skill to their play. In the intervening years they've transformed into the greatest exhibition basketball team in the world, their outrageous manoeuvres, athleticism and comedic skits unlike anything else you're likely to witness on a NBA court.
