Meadowlark Lemon Dies at 83

Recommended Posts

Meadowlark Lemon, the Harlem Globetrotters player known as the "clown prince" of basketball, has died at the age of 83.

Lemon played for the side for 24 years, delighting fans with his trick shots and hijinks.

 

When he was inducted into the basketball hall of fame in 2003 he said his destiny had been "to make people happy".

The team confirmed that he died on Sunday in Scottsdale, Arizona.

 

"He was an incredible entertainer and brought happiness and lifelong memories to millions around the world," said Globetrotters chief executive Kurt Schneider.

 

"We have lost a great ambassador of the game."

 


 


 

I will never forget how fun and entertaining the Harlem Globe Trotters were when I was growing up.  Got to see them in person one time, it was awesome.  RIP Meadowlark.
