[Sponsored Post]

The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to the Resch Center in Green Bay on Friday, December 30th at 7PM. This could be a great Christmas present for the kids or a fun, “family-night” outing during Christmas vacation! I remember my dad and uncles taking me and my cousins to see the Harlem Globetrotters in Flint, Michigan when we were kids and we loved it! It’s one of those special memories that is still with me today and I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m a firm believer that going to fun events like this as a family and making memories together are more meaningful and special than toys or presents. I can’t wait to take my girls for the first time this year…I think they will be totally mesmerized by the ballers!


The Harlem Globetrotters are sure to entertain families and kids of all ages with their amazing basketball tricks. As of 2000, the Globetrotters own 15 current Guinness World Records, 9 of which were recently set this year on Guinness World Records Day. “We are the original trick shot artists, so it is great to reclaim our records and reestablish our dominance,” said Harlem Globetrotters star Big Easy Lofton. “We have been training hard, so to have a day where we push the limits and try some fun, yet challenging shots is pretty cool. I mean, how many people can say they’re a Guinness World Records title holder? We can’t wait to put smiles on people’s faces as we demonstrate our skills and talents on the upcoming world tour.”

Among the nine Guinness World Records titles which were set by the Globetrotters, four of them reclaimed records that were originally held by the team and then broken by Dude Perfect. The Globetrotters reclaimed the records of longest basketball hook shot, longest basketball shot blindfolded, most basketball 3-pointers made by a pair in one minute and longest blindfolded basketball hook shot.

Here’s a full look at the records recently set by the Globetrotters:

  • Longest basketball hook shot – Big Easy Lofton (72 feet, 6.25 inches)
  • Longest basketball shot blindfolded – Ant Atkinson (73 feet, 10 inches)
  • Most basketball 3-pointers in one minute (single ball) – Ant Atkinson and Cheese Chisholm (10 each)
