From Harlem to Asheville
The team originally started out in south Chicago during the 1920's as the Globe Trotters. To give the team a better identity they added Harlem to the name in 1929, but even then it wasn't until 1968 that they played their first "home" game in the New York City borough. Despite their incredible record of wins (over 8,000), the team has changed over the years from competitive basketball to more of an entertainment exhibition. They have had their own feature film and numerous television cameos including Gilligan's Island, the Simpsons, and Futurama.
Tickets are still available to enjoy the antics of the Harlem Globetrotters. Prices range from $29 to $79 and are available here.
