If you are in the area I encourage you to come by and support the International Elite and/or Global Select in their never ending quest for that elusive win against the Globetrotters. Who knows, cheer them on loud enough and maybe it won't take them as long as it took the Generals.

A man can dream.

  1. I was at the 1PM Nassau Coliseum - Globetrotters vs Global Select game yesterday. Globel Select was up by 6 with 2 minutes left. The Trotters had been missing their shots and the Select was making theirs. My son then noticed that the scorer kept stoping / pausing the clock when he shouldn't have. This allowed the Trotters extra time needed to make some more shots to finally take the lead with a minute on the clock left and win. I think without the help of the clock operator, this is a likely Global Select win.

    1. Glad to hear the Select had such a good game. Hope you and your son enjoyed it.

      I have heard a lot of stories like that from people. I have been going to Washington Generals games since I was little and have seen some "creative" calls and convenient clock stops myself.

      It's all part of the show though. The system is in place so as to help ensure the fans get what they want, without flat out requiring to Elite/Select/Generals to flat out "throw the game", miss baskets, etc.

      The Elite/Select will almost surely never win a game. Even if they continue to use these names for another 20 years. But as long as people like you and your son have fun then they did their job.
