Meadowlark Lemon, Harlem Globetrotters’ Dazzling Court Jester, Dies at 83

Meadowlark Lemon, whose halfcourt hook shots, no-look behind-the-back passes and vivid clowning were marquee features of the feel-good traveling basketball show known as the Harlem Globetrotters for nearly a quarter-century, died on Sunday in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 83.

On a personal note, my sister knew his daughter, Robin. Yes, the bird name was intentional. They went to graduate school together and worked in the same office at the University of Arizona.
