Harlem Globetrotters

While the rest of the APT crew drool over Celtics and Pistons stats, following the NBA like hawks over a field of mice, Dr. D remembers the good old times when he was younger, had more time on his hands, and used to dream of being a Harlem Globetrotter. That's right. Throw out the rules, go over the top with the skills, and give me some real entertainment. I remember seeing these guys in 1994 at the Providence Civic Center, now called something like the Dunkin Donuts Arena or the Krispy Kreme Kastle.

Check this "Best Of" video, highlighting the Harlem Globetrotters at their finest:

And let's not forget their signature "Magic Circle" showcase:

Those were the good old days...

All aboard.

One of my favorite Scooby Doo episodes starred the Globetrotters. Classic Clips. Nice Pistons Shout Out. Holla
