Scientists are still puzzled by the contents of the modern basketball: They believe it to be filled either with helium or several baseballs. Contemplate this conundrum with today's Groupon to see the Harlem Globetrotters play at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. Seats are located in the Courtside VIP, 101, 126, 113 and 114 sections. Seat location will be determined based on a first-buy, first-served basis, so Groupon customers wishing to sit together must purchase tickets in the same transaction (service charges included):
- For $24, you get a seat in section 101, 126, 113 or 114 (a $48.25 value).
- For $39, you get a seat in the Courtside VIP section (a $78.25 value).
In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the archrival Washington Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood-sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court-clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.
Having performed in 120 countries and all six penguin-overrun continents, the Globetrotters are one of the few teams inducted in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport. Enjoy a memorable evening of basketballing with your friends, family, or a gullible group of misinformed basket weavers.
