Harlem Globetrotters return to Chicago

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Harlem Globetrotters return to the United Center in Chicago next week for the first time in seven years, facing the Washington Generals, their long-time rivals.

On Tuesday, Globetrotters Dragon Taylor (a Chicago native) and Buckets Blakes visited the ABC7 studio to talk about the game.

Games will be held 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 28 at the United Center, as well as at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 29 at Allstate Arena.

The Harlem Globetrotters will face a revamped Washington Generals team which recently launched a more competitive profile over the summer, making an appearance at the Basketball Tournament. The new tournament-tested team is looking to snap a 47-year losing streak against their world famous rivals during their 2018 season.

Their games will showcase incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction. After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans.
