How long have the Globetrotters been around?

Founded in 1926 by Abe Saperstein, the Harlem Globetrotters played their first-ever road game on Jan. 7, 1927, in Hinckley, Illinois.  From the 1920s until his death in 1966, Saperstein was the greatest promoter in all of sports, making the Globetrotters into a championship team and global icons. The Globetrotters have become the world's home team, synonymous with family entertainment and great basketball skills. 

Have the Globetrotters ever lost a game?

Yes. In fact, the Globetrotters have lost 345 games over the course of nine decades.  However, with over 26,000 wins, the Globetrotters do own the best winning percentage (.987) in the history of professional sports.

Are the exhibition games real basketball?

They are real basketball games. The Harlem Globetrotters and their opponents both play to win, but the Globetrotters do mix in their signature style of show basketball that will entertain fans of all ages.

Where are Marques Haynes, Meadowlark Lemon, Curly Neal, Goose Tatum and Sweet Lou Dunbar?

In 1998, Marques Haynes was the first player ever to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a Globetrotter. Haynes passed away in May 2015. Meadowlark Lemon, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003, passed away in December 2015. Curly Neal, who in February 2008 became just the fifth Globetrotter to ever have his jersey retired, is a motivational speaker and still makes public appearances for the Globetrotters. Goose Tatum passed away in the late 1960s, and he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame in August 2011. Sweet Lou Dunbar is the Globetrotters’ director of player personnel and a coach, sharing 40 years of Globetrotter experience with a new generation of players.
