This online Comedy Basketball Hall of Fame page is provided to give the history of some of the greatest players, owners and teams of comedy basketball. Our goal here at the CBHOF is to educate basketball fans all over the world about the history of comedy basketball and let the fans know that there were and are more teams in comedy basketball then just the Harlem Globetrotters. As well as give credit to the unsung heroes and teams that have played for years and have made a great contribution to the game of basketball. It will also show the importance of them being placed in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Let's change the thinking of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame to induct players and teams that are not only players in the NBA. Harlem Globtotters greats, like Al "Runt" Pullins, owner of the Harlem Clowns and Goose Tatum, basketball's 1st national superstar, are not in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, nor is Fred "Curly" Neal and some many others. Let's have a letter writing campaign to induct Goose Tatum, Fred "Curly" Neal, Al "Runt" Pullins and many more players that played for other comedy basketball teams.

The other goal of the Comedy Basketball Hall of Fame is to be part of the building plans for the National Sports Hall of Fame Museum,, which is founded by the Comedy King of Basketball and owner of the new "ShowBoat"
Robinson's Fabulous Harlem Clowns, LaMont "ShowBoat" Robinson. If you have any old programs, pictures and posters you would like for your memorabilia to be part of this Online Hall of Fame or the National Sports Hall of Fame Museum please let us know.

Send letters and memorabilia to the address below. All letters regarding the player(s) you would like to see inducted to the Maismith Basketball Hall of Fame will be forwarded directly to them. Also, email names of players and teams you would like to see inducted into the Comedy Basketball Hall of Fame, for 2011, to
