Very sad. TP, Nick, for starting the thread and for the Scooby-Doo referenceŚlove that episode. Curly Neal brought a lot of smiles during his lifetime. RIP.

Curly Neal.  Dribbler extraordinaire.  Globetrotters were a phenomenon back in the day and Curly Neal was one of the great faces of the legendary act.

Curly and Meadowlark were magic together. So funny, so gifted with the ball, so entertaining.

Curly and Geese were on the plane that was forced to land on Gilligan's Island, and played a game against the villain's team of robots. Play-by-play call by Chick Hearn. A B-movie classic! (Or maybe D).

Saw them live when I was a kid.  Pure magic.  Rest in peace, Curly!  And keep smiling!
