The Passing of a Globetrotters Legend

This morning we lost Harlem Globetrotters’ legend Curly Neal at the age of 77 years old. I was introduced to Neal and the Globetrotters when they were on Scooby Doo, it was good to be a kid in the 1970s, and then later Gilligan’s Island. It really was a treat to watch him play the game.

RIP Fred “Curly” Neal


  1. Yeah, I remember when I was a kid the top Globetrotters, especially Neal and Meadowlark Lemon, were big stars. Been a long time since that was true. RIP.

  2. Not 100% sure... but I was probably introduced to the Globetrotters by Scooby or Gilligan myself. Rest in peace Curly!
