Age 83, by far, one of the greatest entertainer from my childhood.

As soon as I read the thread title, the globetrotters theme song started running through my head with a visual of him dribbling the ball all around a kid. He was indeed a great entertainer.

I've never heard a negative word about the man from a challenging time in our history. He always seemed a class act playing the clown.

This man probably entertained more children (and adults, for that matter) than anyone outside of, well, anyone. Rest in Peace, Meadowlark. Go whip those Washington Generals one last time.

Back in the late 60's, The Globetrotters played at our local high school.
I got to see Meadowlark up close.
What a great experience for a basketball lovin kid.
