Harlem Globetrotters tour: showboating legends
World-beating basketball troupe the Harlem Globetrotters have a rich history dating back to 1926, when the team was first formed under the name the Savoy Big Five. Yet, while they were founded in the 1920s, the Globetrotters first came to real worldwide prominence in the 1970s.
Standout moments in their long career include a 24-year winning streak running from 1971 - 1995, a number of Guinness World Records and the honour of being the only sports team with their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their opposition - which is most often the long-suffering Washington Generals - are effectively 'stooges' for the spectacular plays that they pull off throughout the games. Despite this however, it is said that around 20-30% of the action is real - a fact which has led to rare Globetrotter defeats in the past.
Thirty-three NBA Championships is all the proof that both the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers need to lay claim as the biggest team basketball but in terms of worldwide recognition, few can even come close to the Globetrotters.
As well as past icons such as Wilt Chamberlain, Fred 'Curly' Neal and Magic Johnson, the team is now made up of a truly star-studded line-up. Expect dizzying moves when the likes of Carlos 'Dizzy' English, Nathaniel 'Big Easy' Lofton and Saul 'Flip' White hit the UK in 2019. Buy Harlem Globetrotters tickets now at StubHub.
