Harlem Globetrotters Are Coming to @PhilipsArena!

The Harlem Globetrotters began in 1926 as the Savoy Big Five. Now more than 85 years and 20,000 games later, the team has become one of the most recognizable franchises in sports. The "New York Harlem Globe Trotters" started by touring Illinois and Iowa led by Tommy Brookins. The Globetrotters gradually worked comic routines into their act until they became known more for entertainment than sports. The Globetrotters' acts often feature incredible coordination and skillful handling of one or more basketballs, such as passing or juggling balls between players, balancing or spinning balls on their fingertips, and making unusual, difficult shots.

My first memory of the Harlem Globetrotters was when my Grandmother took my sister and I to see them one summer when the tour came through her hometown while we were there visiting. I remember the entertainment factor still and its been at least 20 years since then. I remember being in awe of the sportsmanship and how it looked like they were having so much fun. Style and grace at its finest!
