Great roundball history piece !
11 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

What can you say about the Harlem Globetrotters that hasn't already been said? This film is pure basketball history complete with a great story line and some of the best players EVER to play the game! When I viewed this film in the 50's it was my inspiration to play the game. That was nearly fifty years ago and I will NEVER FORGET IT !!!!!
