    I got to see the Globetrotters back then. They were all just too good for words.

    I loved the Globetrotters in those days - Meadowlark Lemon and Curly were the stars. RIP.

    I always associate these two stars when I hear someone say " The Harlem Globetrotters " . They truly earned the title of , " super stars " .
    Both gone too soon

    I always think of ABC's wide world of sports, the globetrotters were great entertainment and were all over place in the early 80s
    Geese Ausbie and Curly were my favorites.
    Sorry to see him go.
    And you gotta love sweet georgia brown

    Sorry to hear about Curly's clock running out. But I've always been a Washington Generals fan, myself.
