Globetrotters coming to Oklahoma City

In a few weeks, the Harlem Globetrotters will be at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

Amazing Feats of Basketball is the team’s 2018 world tour. With them, they bring an international group of dunking artists, combining sports with entertainment.

Six members have participated in the yearly Final Four weekend contest, College Slam Dunk. Another member holds the Guinness World Record for slam dunks. Finally, last year’s winner of the television program The Dunk King will join them.

This year, the Flying Globies will debut with the Globetrotters. This elite group use trampolines to perform acrobatic stunts while dunking.

The Washington Generals will also return in 2018 after being on hiatus for two years. The Generals, rival of the Globetrotters, have lost more than 14,000 times against the famous team, but are determined to gain a win this year.

The event takes place on the afternoon and evening of February 10. Show times are 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm, and the arena is located at 100 W Reno. A ‘Magic Pass’ is also available for an event before the game that allows fans with tickets to meet the team, take picture with the players, learn tricks, and shoot baskets. After the game, the team will take photos and sign autographs.

Attendees can impress their friends and family by using the personal photos they take with the players for the front of their holiday cards.
