Globetrotter in Wilmington

I guess this show is for rich people because us older folks sure don't have $30 or $40 to spend on a 2 hour Basketball game.... I used to go to the Harlem Globetrotters shows in Charlotte, NC when I was younger, but it didn't cost that this one... Hope you fill the stadium though...


the tickets are a tad pricey, if they play with the pizzazz displayed by Meadowlark when he was with the Globetrotters, it should be a good show.

I remember seeing the Globetrotters in my youth; their ball handling would put some of today's overpriced pros to shame.

I am surprised at one thing. I would have thought they would put John Rendleman on the court with some type of court cam on his forehead. But, perhaps he is concerned at some antics involving his gym shorts or cross tied shoe laces.
