Globetrotters vs. Generals

The Washington Generals have had a long run as icons of basketball futility, usually playing the foil to the Harlem Globetrotters, who they’ve lost to an estimated 14,000 times. This latest string of exhibition games recalls the last rare occasion the Generals prevailed — almost a half-century ago. Of course, the real draw is the hoop magicians from Harlem, whose trick shots and soaring dunks have dazzled young basketball fans since the ’60s. While Meadowlark Lemon and Curly Neal have passed the baton to Big Easy Lofton and Ant Atkinson, basketball’s court jesters remain an attraction. $18-$155, 7pm Thu, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com. — M.
