SPORTS HERO:
HARLEM GLOBE TROTTERS

My heroes are the basketball players known as the Harlem Globe Trotters. In these few paragraphs I will talk about how the Harlem Globe Trotters became famous. They are my heroes because they play basketball for charity by doing all sorts of trick shots.

The Harlem Globe Trotters were founded in 1926 and have been playing ever since. They became famous because they showed the world how basketball really should be played.

They teach children how to play basketball. They have played over 20,000 games and have never lost one of them. They have played in over 118 different countries. They have never given up.

The reason why I like the Harlem Globe Trotters is because they interact with the crowd. They have so much fun doing something at which they excel. They are helping the needy and having fun at the same time.

The Harlem Globe Trotters are my heroes because they do something that they are good at to help the needy. They teach children to follow their dreams. They are my heroes because they showed the world how basketball really should be played.
