Meadowlark Transformed The Sport Of Basketball
The fact of the matter is, the Harlem Globetrotters help make basketball what it is today and offered a wide appeal of showmanship, skill, gags, and family fun. In the center of all the hoopla during that period was Meadowlark Lemon, the face of the Globetrotter franchise. He delighted fans for 25 as a Globetrotter before forming his own band of Bucketeers in 1980. Wilt Chamberlain is on record stating Lemon as the best player of all time.
With his passing on December 27, 2015, RetroCards honors the great Meadowlark Lemon with a design from 1974.
