    The Globetrotters have dropped their long time nemesis, the Washington Generals, as their mainstay opponent.

    Frankly, I find it incredible the Globetrotters are even still around in this day and age, as their original mission has long since ended and the schtick must get old after a while.

    Kids still love it. Imagine how low you've sunk if you are willing to be a Washington general

    The Washington Generals didn't want the Globetrotters anyway.

    I watched them once or twice on TV, back in the 70's, when they had Medowlark Lemon, Curley and crew. It just wasn't my bag, I guess.

    Do they still draw well?
