This game celebrates the Harlem Globetrotters, the comic basketball team that combined athleticism and comedy to create one of the best-known sports franchises in the world. Launched as a professional team in 1927, the group of African-American Chicago natives was named for the New York neighborhood that represented the essence of African-American culture. Ironically, the team did not actually play a game in Harlem until 1968.
