The Harlem Globetrotters are dribbling, dunking and bouncing into Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 14 at the Staples Center downtown.
Players including Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Handles Franklin and Hi Rise Brown will be showing their stuff on the court for the team's 2010 "Magical Memories" World Tour.
The famous dunkers -- the franchise is currently in its 84th consecutive season -- do things on the court that the NBA only dreams of -- awesome loop-dee-loops and leaps that seem to defy gravity.
If you notice a nostalgic tone, it's because I was a huge fan of the Globetrotters as a tyke in Oklahoma City. In fact, tickets to one of these tours was tops on my birthday wish list when I was 9 or 10. Seeing them in person was so fun -- they truly are entertainers.
And if your kids are basketball fans anyway, this should definitely be on the to-do list.
The Globetrotters will be traveling through the Southland Feb. 13-15. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
