Is any group more loved than the Harlem Globetrotters? I don't think so. These guys have double-dribbled joy to all over the world, and today team member Special K Daley is in town enchanting lucky kids at a couple of Dallas schools. Teachers, look out: your personal belongings will likely be subject to an inspired game of keep away by afternoon. Since we, the over-worked adults of Dallas cannot skip math class to see a Globetrotter perform in a gymnasium, let's watch a few clips of the team's best hijinx.

Here's an amazing kick shot by Curly Boo Johnson.

This one starts with signature goof ball mischief but ends with an amazing three-point hook shot.

This is too long to actually hold your attention, but it's a fun throwback clip.

This kid isn't a Globetrotter, yet. He's awesome though.

This background music gets a little raw (There's cursing, FYI), but there's also some great 'Trotter moments.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
