I just got back from watching the Harlem Globetrotters play in Lowell, MA. They're doing a fan powered world tour. The last time I went to a Harlem Globetrotters basketball game, Meadlowlark Lemon was the star, and I don't mean his return in 1994. It would have had to have been pre-1980s. After over 90 years since starting in Chicago in the 1920s, the team continues to be a great family entertainment option, where you can almost guarantee the team will win in the end. They did lose once back in 1971, so it isn't a total guarantee.
The Original Harlem Globetrotters are known for their amazing feats of basketball, humor, and acts of goodwill on and off the court. And they have always been about the fans, but this year, everything they do will bring fans closer to the action more than ever before. Join them as they celebrate fans during the all-new Fan Powered World Tour! There will be over 20 occasions before, during and after the game where you have the opportunity to directly interact with Globetrotters stars.

When you go see the Harlem Globetrotters, you are almost defintely not there to watch a basketball game. There are a ton of on-court antics from throwing water, feathers, and popcorn, to plenty of dancing for entertainment. More famously, they're known for their trick shots and a weave where they pass the ball around a lot around the hopeless Generals. It looks better when you view it from the front, from the side, it looks a little like controlled chaos.
One of the funnier gags is a move to guarantee a blocked shot. A player, #40 Wham, stood on the basketball net. Then he was too scared to get down and had to eventually go through the hoop to get back to the ground.
