Sad day, really enjoyed watching them all as a kid. Curly was great!
Yeah, loved Curly. Liked Meadowlark, but loved Curly.
RIP Curly Neal.
Yeah, I used to love watching Curly and the GT’s. RIP Curly.
As a kid I never missed watching the Harlem Globetrotters specials on television. They were the epitome of cool and Curly Neil with Meadowlark Lemon were my heroes.
RIP sir and thanks!
he was my era of the globetrotters...saw them as a kid RIP
They actually put on a performance in Meridian, Mis when I lived there. Way cool. A friend was chosen to part of the routine (I think we were 10 at the time) and got. Globetrotters ball for it. We were extremely jealous
They were fun to watch. Meadowlark & Curly - what a team
The HGs played at my junior high school auditorium when I was in the 8th grade, in 1969.
They were mesmerizing, funny and full of joyful athleticism.
It was unforgettable, and I never did.
RIP, and thanks, sir.
They played at my high school in the ‘60s IIRC. Great fun! RIP.
I took my daughter to see them 2 years ago (she was a (HS sophomore then). I was expecting to feel cynical about the deal, but it was a really good and fun show. @brookdalebill described it perfectly as joyful athleticism.
I saw the Globe Trotters several times as a kid, late fifties or early sixties. They would come to the Will Rogers Coliseum, and my dad owned stock in the production company (Ice Capades as well) so we got courtside seats. Never involved in a routine, but it was hilarious anyway. Meadowlark was the only one who's name we knew, I believe Curly was same era, but not sure. They were amazing players, and wonderful "ambassadors" to the world. RIP, Curly.
RIP, Curly. You brought joy to a lot of people.
Loved the Trotters . Saw them a bunch .
