The Harlem Globetrotters Toronto Tickets
The Harlem Globetrotters were created almost ninety years ago as a side attraction at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago. They soon grew to become one of the best basketball teams in the country after they recruited the best African American talent in the sport. After NBA teams started integrating African Americans in their squad, the Globetrotters lost a lot of their stars and instead started focusing more on the spectacle rather than the game itself. They worked on their comedy acts, as well as their trick shots and have since achieved worldwide fame because of it.

Basketball was not always as popular as it is today and it took the sport a few years to find mainstream success. Even though several factors played a part in bringing the sport into the limelight, there was one team in particular that did its share of work in that regard to spread the love of the game throughout the world. They were the Harlem globetrotters, an exhibition basketball side that played the game as only they knew how; using comedy, flashy tricks and skills to bamboozle audiences everywhere.
The Globetrotters were created in 1926 and started off as a side attraction at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago. Soon however they started to build up a fan base of their own and began to tour the country, becoming one of the best teams around. They were one of the first sports teams to visit the USSR during the Cold War and also managed to win the World Professional Basketball Tournament in 1940.
