The last of the Sprint Center events come to a phenomenon that has been around for ages. The Harlem Globetrotters travel worldwide as an exhibition
basketball team showing off tricks, skills, athleticism and more. Many great and legendary players have taken root in the Harlem Globetrotters. The team
originated in Chicago in the 1920’s called the Savoy Big Five but it eventually ended in a split. Half the team went on to form the Globe Trotters lead by Tommy Brookins. Although the team never had roots in Harlem, New York, they wanted an outsider reputation and give people a reason to come watch them play even if they were from Chicago. Soon, they were traveling around Iowa, Illinois and other states by the name of Harlem Globetrotters. The team, made of all African Americans, beat the all white team, the Minneapolis Lakers and made headlines everywhere. Because of Reece “Goose” Tatum, the team added a bit of comedy and entertainment between plays and the game. However, with the rise of the NBA, the Globetrotters didn’t have their uniqueness of an all black team and lost their originality. However, thanks to the comedy, performance shows and entertaining skills, the team grabbed on to performing rather than playing.
No matter what is going on this holiday season or these cold winter months, take a second to look into these Sprint Center events and make everyone happy throughout the next few months!
