The Harlem Globetrotters are considered to be the forerunners of the NBA and ignited interest amongst the population for basketball. The team was formed by some students of the Wendell Phillips High School in Chicago during the 1920’s. In 1928 the first incarnation of the ‘Globetrotters’ was led by Tommy Brookins.
After a number of successful tours promoting the team, it was decided to rename the team as the ‘Harlem Globetrotters’ since Harlem was considered synonymous with African-American identity. However, it would take forty years before the team would be able to perform in Harlem.
The Globetrotters have been associated with some of the most gifted athletes in history. These included legends like Wilt Chamberlain, Nat Clifotn, Connie Hawkins, Jerome James, Fred Neal, Marques Haynes, Meadowlark Connie and Hubert Ausbie among others. The team competed in the World Basketball Tournament, winning it in 1940.
The team was able to successfully entertain the crowds by incorporating comic acts into their basketball routines. These included dribbling with more than one ball, making funny passes, attempting unconventional shots and juggling balls.
Over the years, the team has continued to expand upon their routine and has adapted itself to changing preferences. Do not miss this chance to catch one of the greatest basketball teams in history live in action. Be sure to buy Harlem Globetrotters Des Moines tickets quickly before they sell out.
