Globetrotters tour South Georgia

February 25, 2003

Albany- They've traveled all around the world and played in front of thousands, and for one night hundreds of South Georgians got to see the Harlem Globetrotters in action.

The team played its first game in 1927 and over 75 years later they're still wowing even the smallest spectators.

"I like to see the comedy," says Ronald Bell.

"I like how they do the tricks, like when the man throws the shoe at the coach," adds Rickeia Jackson.

Tevin Fulton spent his 9th birthday watching the Globetrotters antics.

"It's not real basketball, its funny basketball," claims Garrett Bickerstaff.

And that funny basketball is inspiring some kids career goals. Three year old Cameron says he wants to be a Globetrotter when he grows up?

This year, the Harlem Globetrotters were inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
