Sad. He was a fun person to watch perform.
The Globetrotters fascinated me as a kid, and Meadowlark was THE star of that troupe back then. He and Curly Neal put them on the map in the 70s. A solid performer and a gentleman, he will be mourned.
Gonna watch that classic episode of Scooby-Doo with the Globetrotters. Sad days indeed. :(cry:

G’bye, Sweet Georgia Lemon!
Saw him 3-4 times live, he was always terrific.
I grew up loving the Harlem Globetrotters and Meadowlark Lemon was my favorite. RIP.
