The 95-year-old organization recently made headlines after they called on the NBA to add them as a franchise, citing their contributions to the game.
“As the NBA grew, you were able to attract the best Black players, but we remember who helped the NBA get it all started … You can’t just act like we don’t exist anymore. It’s time to right the wrongs and rewrite history. It’s time for the NBA to honor what the Globetrotters have done for OUR sport, both here in the U.S. and around the globe.”
