For many people 30-years-old and up, the Harlem Globetrotters were a fun part of their childhood that can never be replaced.

If you were lucky enough to have them visit your town for one of their famous exhibition games, especially against the Washington Generals (now the World All-Stars), you were really in for a treat.

You probably watched them completely mesmerized by their never-before-seen tricks and ball skills and laughed when their hijinks ensued.

Although the actual basketball played wasn’t (and still isn’t) on the same level as the NBA, the Globetrotters combined athleticism, skill, comedy, and showmanship to entertain people worldwide.

Although their roster has changed dramatically in the last 100 years, the Globetrotters still make over 400 appearances each year.

If this is your first time hearing about them (let’s face it, NBA rules the school in the land of hoops) or maybe you’ve never seen their perfectly-timed passes and dunks or laughed at their jokes (usually at someone else’s expense), you’re in for a treat.

Sure, they may seem corny but that’s part of the fun. Where else can you watch a 5’2″ pro player nicknamed “Too Tall,” dance like this on a basketball court?

If you look past all of their guest appearances and games, hilarity and hijinks, these players have some serious skills.
