Harlem Globetrotters
March Madness basketball invaded the World Arena on Sunday, but it wasn't the NCAA college basketball tournament. Globetrotter "Too Tall" is too fast for a group of five kids from the crowd trying to steal the ball. The Harlem Globetrotters are famous worldwide for their brand of basketball, combining basketball skills, theatre, and comedy. The Globetrotters were founded in 1926. Since then, the Globetrotters have entertained fans in 122 countries and territories worldwide. The Globetrotters defeated the Chicago Bruins in 1940, winning the World Basketball Championship. In 1948 and 1949, the Globetrotters were able to defeat the World Champion Minneapolis Lakers. The victories over the Lakers lead to Globetrotter Nathaniel ÒSweetwaterÓ Clifton became one of the first African-American players to sign an NBA contract with the New York Knicks in 1950.
