Harlem Globetrotters Celebrate Their 4,000th Straight Victory
May 26 / Gregg Sussman / SportsGrid
The Harlem Globetrotters have won 4,000 straight games. Yes. 4,000 straight. Every other streak wanes in comparison. Never mind the Patriots 19-1 season or the Uconn women's basketball 90 game winning streak from 2008-2010. Hell, we even think that UCLA's 88 game winning streak has nothing on this.
The Harlem Globetrotters Twitter account made this announcement yesterday after yet another win.
Clearly the Harlem Globetrotters are the best statistical team to ever play basketball. They have proved to dominate just about any team since they started January 7, 1927. Their overall .985 winning percentage is absolutely ridiculous. This 4,000 game winning streak pales in comparison to their longest in franchise history. They once won 8,829 straight games before losing 91-85 to a team led by Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Will they ever be able to break their own record?
After the brutally long NBA playoffs are over, it's time for the champions to take on the Globetrotters. The NBA Champions want to claim they are the World Champs, maybe they should try taking on the GLOBEtrotters. The Golden State Warriors may have finished with the best record in regular season history, but the Globetrotters laugh at that.
Any way you look at it, 4,000 straight win in any sport or competition is quite impressive. Even if it is the equivalent of the New York Knicks playing the Rec league All Stars, it’s quite a streak. We’ll be sure to let you know when the streak ends... although it might be a while.
