SEATTLE - The Harlem Globetrotters are known around the world and have entertained audiences since 1927. Each year nearly 750 athletes put on more than 400 live events. They're bringing their show to the Pacific Northwest beginning on November 15th with stops in Everett, Bellevue, Kent and Lacey.
Off the court, the group spends time in classrooms to promote their anti-bullying mission. They even volunteer their time with local television reporters, like me, and take pity on our awful basketball skills.
Zeus McClurkin is one of the most decorated Harlem Globetrotters. He's in his eighth season with the team and holds 4 of the team's 21 Guinness World Records. McClurkin also made the Globetrotters' first-ever basketball shot while parasailing!
