The Next NBA Expansion Team: The Harlem Globetrotters??


After 95 years, and more than 26,000 exhibition games, the Harlem Globetrotters are ready to get serious. They want in on the NBA, and have even sent a formal letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver outlining their case.

The Globetrotters were established in 1926, twenty years before the NBA began. They've been traveling the world with their unique and wacky brand of basketball since then, but now they feel it's time to step up their game.

Based on what we’ve already proven, we can field a team of talent on par with the pros of today, and we want the chance to do that. As a world renowned and legendary professional basketball team, we petition Commissioner Adam Silver, the NBA governors and the powers that be to grant The Original Harlem Globetrotters an NBA franchise. Not now, but right now.

Are they serious? Who knows, they might even recruit Steph Curry. It's not like they haven't tried him out before...
