(desperate for publicity while offering nothing of enduring value. On the right, Dennis Rodman)
In a story you (hopefully) won’t read in any self-respecting newspaper sports section, Dennis Rodman and his Bad Boy All-Star team (no, seriously) are taking on the Harlem Globetrotters on Feb. 17 in Las Vegas, which happens to coincide with the NBA All-Star weekend, also in Vegas.
From Harlem Globetrotters website (no, seriously, they have a website):
That afternoon, basketball history will be made in Las Vegas when the Ambassadors of Goodwill meet and play a spirited and competitive basketball game against Dennis Rodman and his Bad Boy All-Star team. Never have these amazing athletes met on the court for championship competitive play. The game between the Globetrotters and the unpredictable, record-setting and championship winning Rodman will be recorded as one of the greatest and very likely the most unusual basketball events of all-time.
Did the Globetrotters PR flacks not witness the Nuggets-Knicks?

I actually believe this is a very positive move for both Rodman and the globetrotters. While the And-1 street basketball videos seem a little long in the tooth in 2006, they represented a worthwhile demographic to go after. No Hello Larry fan can dislike the wholesome Globetrotters and what they stand for, but certainly, GC, you see the value in the babyface globetrotters facing off against the heel “bad boy all-stars” in an urbanized Titan Sports-ish concept. Frankly, Titan were fools not to look into this arena and I hope the concept works. Go Go Globetrotters.
