Do you ever feel bad, always demolishing the other team?

HarlemGlobetrotters_26 karma

Well... we did beat up on the washington generals last year so badly they didnt want to come back... so... we're beating up on the all stars this year lol but on a lighter note, no one really remembers the score of the game by the end. But they do remember laughing and smiling and having a good time, thats what we are all about!! -Scooter

Have you ever thought about betting on the Generals and losing the game?

HarlemGlobetrotters_16 karma

That would be a nice retirement plan lol but I'm too much of a winner!!And I'd still feel like a loser with all that money in the bank! -Buckets

What was your first exposure to the Globetrotters?

HarlemGlobetrotters_12 karma

Before I was a globetrotter, I was an assistant video coordinator and practice player for the phx suns, and the globetrotter home base was in phx and I got discovered during a pickup game on the weekend in the phx arena, the Globetrotter scouts invited me to the camp and I've been a globetrotter for 11 years.-Scooter

My first exposure to the Globetrotters was when I was in college at Temple University, they were playing in our arena after one of our practices, me and a few teammates stayed and watched a while. We felt like kids again, we sat there in amazement lol-TNT

One of our teammates named Hacksaw, does this double jointed thing with his shoulder, arm and elbow while he has the ball balanced on the back of his neck! It's hard to explain, you HAVE to see it! crazy-Scooter

Where is the most unique country or venue each of you has played?

New Zealand was really cool (They did a traditional dance to welcome us to the land) Monaco was beautiful, and I got to play at the white house, that was cool and unique!-TNT

What are you pre and postgame meals?

HarlemGlobetrotters_4 karma

we finish games pretty late so there's not that many options, so we try to eat as healthy as possible, things like fruit, veggie burgers, salads, salads with protein in it. -TNT

I try to do things like salmon, garlic mashed potatoes and some sort of green veggie.-Buckets

sY204 karma

Which world record are you guys looking to break next?

grab_me_a_beer4 karma

Has there been any bad treatment on the road? Such as in on the court and having fans boo or yell? Thanks for your time and giving enjoyment to millions of people over the years!

HarlemGlobetrotters_9 karma

LOL at least once a year there's a random dude that shows up with a washington general and cheers for the opposing team to win but it's all in fun lol and he usually gets our autograph after the game!

cdreyfuss964 karma

What made you want to become a globetrotter as opposed to a traditional professional basketball career?

HarlemGlobetrotters_10 karma

A lot of what made me retire from playing professional bball in europe was the fact that the Harlem Globetrotters are Ambassadors of good will! that is something I've been interested in since I was a kid, helping others. So that is what really sold me on becoming a Globetrotter!-TNT

Kimlacroose_123 karma

How to you guys get your nicknames?
