Contrary to their New York borough name, the Harlem Globetrotters were founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1926 by a man called Abe Saperstein. He collected a group of African-American basketball players to compete in different exhibition games and named them the “Harlem Globetrotters” after Harlem in New York; a neighborhood associated with the black community, particularly at the time. They quickly became a prominent team as they became perennial competitors in the World Championship. In 1948, for example, they overpowered headlines after defeating the Lakers, a heavily White basketball team.
In recent years, the Globetrotters have exceptional players within it, but also those who can perform variety acts and stunts with basketballs. The team frequently tries to beat world records such as scoring a basket from two hundred feet above the ground in a helicopter. It also drafts celebrities and individuals from other walks of life who are good at basketball into their team, as is the very recent case in drafting Gal Gadot (actress from Wonder Woman).
The Harlem Globetrotters have always been pioneers of innovations in the game of basketball. It was one of the first all-African American basketball teams. It was also the first team to defeat an all-white team. In recent history, it is the first team to draft women as well as men, creating a co-existent team in the international exhibition games. Then, it also utilizes individuals who are not primarily from the basketball world; however, they are still competent basketball players.
