Harlem Globetrotters

‘Dear NBA’ Letter Campaign

Newly fired up, ready to blow away fans and reclaim their place in basketball history and culture, the World Famous Globetrotters were ready to create a frenzy.

It was time to push for what they wanted, in a very public manner. The goal? To get the attention of the NBA in recognizing the Globetrotters’ contribution to the franchise and basketball culture.

The Dear NBA Letter Campaign was the spark that ignited the Harlem Globetrotters relaunch, striking a chord with fans, journalists, and basketball enthusiasts, all of whom jumped on the viral topic and most of whom expressed support for the idea. There was no doubt; this was a newer, relevant Globetrotters team. OBJECTIVES
