The Harlem Globetrotters Tickets:
The Harlem Globetrotters is a unique American basketball team that plays only exhibition games. The team combines athleticism, theatre and comedy into its performances. Abe Seperstein founded it in 1926 in Chicago, Illinois, as the Savoy Big Five. The team officially changed its name to The Harlem New York Globetrotters in 1927. Throughout the years the members of the team numbered over 520 players and they have played more than 20,000 exhibition games in 118 countries. The executive offices are currently in Phoenix, Arizona, and the team is owned by Shamrock Holdings.
The first star of the team was Albert Runt Pullins, who was an incredible dribbler and shooter. Soon Inman Jackson, who played center and had a very good sense of attractive performances and comedy, supported him. Together they marked the two main roles in the team - the showman and the dribbler.
During the first years The Harlem Globetrotters was a serious team that struggled in the World Professional Basketball Tournament. The team started with the exhibition matches in 1950. In 1977 Globetrotters celebrated the 50th season.
After years of hard work, in 1982 Globetrotters became the first sports team honored with a star on Hollywood's famous Walk of Fame.
In 1985 the team signed the first ever-female player - the Olympic Gold Medalist Lynette Woodard. In 2004 she was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
In 1994 Columbia Pictures produced a feature film focused on the team's early years. Throughout the years the players often were stars in films and TV shows.
In 1997 Magic Johnson signed with The Harlem Globetrotters and it was a real feast for the true fens of the team.
The team has set many records. In 2000 Michael Wild Thing Wilson set Guinness World Record with 12-hoop dunk. In 2009 Scooter Christensen set two Guinness World Records for ball spinning at NBA All-Star Weekend.
In 2010 the team Harlem Globetrotters celebrated its 85th anniversary.
