Once I figured out this was not a basketball game, but an exhibition more like pro wrestling, it was easier to be entertained. I enjoyed the event, but once pretty much sums it up. Marie however, loved it and she was thoroughly entertained. She would love to go and see them again.
I do wonder how well the Globetrotters would pay in a honest basketball game against a real opponent. In 1954 the Globetrotters played the Minneapolis Lakers and the Trotters won on the last shot. Of course the NBA was still pretty segregated and black players had no other outlet to play at the highest levels. Now, I think the Trotters talent is not what it used to be. Mind you, the players can shoot the three and they leap like nobodies business, but certainly their rounded skill set is not being shown.
