Trivia Contest: Enter to Win 4 Pack Tickets/Meet and Greet Passes to the Feb 22 Lake Placid Harlem Globetrotters



For those interested in a bit of Globetrotter history, The Harlem Globetrotters are neither originally from Harlem nor did they start out as the professional comedic basketball team they are today. The Harlem Globetrotters actually started in the 20s as an all African-American exhibition basketball team in the south side of Chicago known as the Savoy Big Five.  

The original team played in Chicago’s Savoy Hotel ballroom before dances. In 1927 a new name was debuted, New York Globetrotters, with little to do with New York or trotting around the globe. The team began touring around the country.  “New York” was taken out of the team name in 1930 and the word Harlem added, as organizes hoped to capitalize on the team’s strong ties to African-American culture.  It wasn’t until the 1930s that the team even played in Harlem.


As its popularity evolved they experimented with adding comedy to the games. Then with the 1950 NBA integration, the Globetrotters’ competitive exhibition games were shrinking so fancy footwork and amazing dribbling skills were needed to keep the crowds coming. Now more than 85 years later the Harlem Globetrotters have trotted the globe playing over 20,000 games in over 120 countries.
