The Harlem Globetrotters are a world famous exhibition basketball team. Founded in 1927, the Harlem Globetrotters have been entertaining families for decades. They combine athletics, theater, and comedy to create a show the whole family can enjoy.
In 2013, the Harlem Globetrotters introduced the "Fans Rule" World Tour with great success. This tour was the first time in history that fans got to vote on new rules to be used in their actual games. It was such a hit; they are doing it again for the 2014 "Fans Rule" World Tour.
Here are some of the new rules to choose from:
Trick Shot Challenge - Each quarter both teams get 3 trick shot challenges. If a team member makes the trick shot, the team gets 5 points. If they miss the shot, the opposing team gets 5 points.
Hot Hand Jersey - Double points are scored by the player wearing this jersey.
Make or Miss - Each quarter starts with 2 players on each team. If a team scores, another player on that team may enter the court. When a team misses a shot, a player on that team must leave the court.
6 on 5 - This is simply 5 Harlem Globetrotters versus 6 opponents. See if they can stand the challenge!
