2. “Introducing… Your Harlem Globetrotters” – Lights, music, dancing… applause as each player came out to the floor and showed their super cool basketball trick. Yes, before the games even started everyone was already cheering and amazed at each trick.

3. Dancing, dancing, dancing – The players not only ran up and down the court, but they danced the night away. Break-dancing, dancing with the audience, or dancing to distract the referee, it was a happening throughout the entire game.

5. The Big Come Back – The infamous Generals lead the game in points, but not without the help of a questionable referee. It was down to “sudden death” and our Globbies won! Phew, how exciting.

6. Player Diversity – It’s so cool to see when short basketball players are on the court. It’s also delightful to see a woman sporting the red, white and blue jersey of the Harlem Globetrotters.
