The Harlem Globetrotters were established in 1926 and originally consisted of players from South side of Chicago. The team only much later incorporated the title the Harlem Globetrotters.
Apart from being the team known for its athleticism, comedy and theatrics, another distinguishing feature is its players’ names. Anthony "Ant" Atkinson, Tay "Firefly" Fisher, Jacob "Hops" Tucker, William "Bull" Bullard, Paul "Tiny" Sturgess (2011), Jumpin’ Joe Ballard, and Chris “Animal” Hyche are just a few of the Globetrotters.

The “Unreal” Real Basketball team
The Globetrotters are a real professional basketball team in many ways. They have their own annual draft in which only the most talented are selected for the team. They have their own manager, head coach and the rest of the managing staff. Former NBA players Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain and “Wee” Willie Gardner have played as Globetrotters in the past.
However, the team has also drafted players that are not basketball players. The famous Argentinian soccer star, Lionel Messi is one such example. Furthermore, the team has ten honorary members, out of which two are Popes, three politicians and two Hollywood actors.
