Have you ever seen the Harlem Globetrotters in person? OMG! They're so much fun.

Who remembers when the great Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain played for the Globetrotters in the late '50s? It's hard to believe that the team was put together in 1926 and has been entertaining fans for decades. In 2002 they were even inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame which is an incredible honor. Do you remember in 2000 at the Final Four when Michael "Wild Thing" Wilson set a world record dunking on a 12-foot hoop? I believe the record still stands today. The Harlem Globetrotters are not only hilarious performers, but they are super athletic.

I remember sitting in front of the television in the '70s watching the Harlem Globetrotters cartoon on CBS and watching them perform on ABC's Wide World of Sports with my Dad. It was family entertainment at its finest!
