The Harlem Wizards Put a New Spin on Basketball – Elmhurst BMW Dealer

September 25th, 2017 by

You’ve seen basketball games before, but we’re pretty sure you’ve never seen anything quite like the Harlem Wizards. Experience the excitement firsthand and enjoy an evening of family fun on Saturday, September 30 as the Harlem Wizards hit the court here in Elmhurst. And they’ll be playing against our very own teachers and school district principals. At Elmhurst BMW, we encourage everyone to come to this event, which benefits our community’s public school educational programs.

The Harlem WizardsThe Harlem Wizards will thrill you as they deliver slam dunks, show off their incredible talents and showcase their unique brand of basketball comedy magic. Of course, the kids will love seeing the Wizards run circles around their teachers.

The Harlem Wizards began in 1962 when New York sports promoter Howie Davis envisioned a basketball team that could put on a show unlike anything seen before. The team is still going strong after 55 incredible years, with three teams that performed in over 400 American cities last year.

The Wizards’ 2017 roster includes former Harlem Globetrotters Arnold “A-Train” Bernard, Eric “Broadway” Jones and Dwayne “Swoop” Simpson. Other top talent includes slam-dunk champion Lemarvon “Showtime” Jackson, James “The Roadrunner” Tyndal, “King Arthur” Lewis and a host of luminaries from the world of exhibition basketball.
