I remember watching that stupid shit when I was a kid. The Globetrotters did,however,break ground when they started allowing Blacks to play.

Why you are allowed to start threads is one of life's great mysteries.

I wish they'd really let them play an honest game....... with the penalty box and 4 point shots.

They lost to KU one time but that was during the ticket scandal so it was stricken from the record books.

From 1953 until 1995, the Generals played exhibitions against the Globetrotters, winning only six games, the last in 1971, and losing more than 13,000. It was as the New Jersey Reds that the Generals' last win came in a game against the Globetrotters. On January 5, 1971, the Globetrotters lost a game in Martin, Tennessee, in overtime to the Reds. It was Klotz himself who sank the winning basket for a 100-99 score that ended the Globetrotters' 2,499-game winning streak.

Klotz eventually "disbanded" the Generals in 1995, forming a new team, the New York Nationals, which also has achieved an impressive losing streak. In reality, of course, it was the same team; Klotz merely retired the Washington Generals identity. The Nationals remain a separate organization from the Globetrotters. Harlem claims its exhibition games are "real" and "competitive" contests.[1]

After a 12-year hiatus, the Generals returned on October 9, 2007, playing against the Globetrotters at the 369th Harlem Armory. The Globetrotters won 54-50.[2]

Krusty's Accountant: Let me get this straight. You took all the money you made franchising your name and bet it *against* the Harlem Globetrotters?

Krusty: [miserable] Oh, I thought the Generals were due!

Krusty: He's spinning the ball on his finger! Just take it! Take it!

Krusty: That game was fixed! They were using a freakin' ladder, for God's sake!
