Harlem Globetrotters

7 p.m. $30-104. Ford Idaho Center. 16200 Idaho Center Blvd., Nampa

by

The Harlem Globetrotters is the world's most famous hijinx basketball team. The Trotters regularly dance around their opponents with their shenanigans (the gag is always on the other team), and have wowed fans all over the world with their athleticism and trickery, but the gags go off the court, as well: Honorary members of the team include Bob Hope, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Nelson Mandela and popes John Paul II and Francis. The team has also figured in the Civil Rights era and U.S.-Soviet relations, the latter involving a young Wilt Chamberlain—arguably one of the greatest basketball players of all time. For decades, the team has entertained, broken records and blown past barriers, and on Monday, Nov. 11, it will hit the court at the Ford Idaho Center—a do-not-miss chance to see their flair and chicanery at work.
