    - January 7, 1927, basketball promoter Abe Saperstein's "New York Globetrotters" took the floor on this date at Hinckley, IL. Despite the "New York" name, the Globetrotters hailed from Chicago's South Side. The talented African-American players, unable to play in white professional leagues, barnstormed the nation in serious basketball promotional events. They changed to the "Harlem Globetrotters" in the 1930s and added humor to their games in the 1940s.
