The  Globetrotters' History:

The Globetrotters originated on the south side of Chicago in the 1920s, where all the original players were raised. The Globetrotters began as the Savoy Big Five, one of the premier attractions of the Savoy Ballroom opened in November 1927, a basketball team of African-American players that played exhibitions before dances.

In 1928, after a dispute, the team fractured and led by Tommy Brookins the Globetrotters were formed.
