    Harlem Globetrotters’ Meadowlark Lemon Dies at Age 83

    He was the “Clown Prince of Basketball.” After more than 16,000 performances around the world from 1954 to 1978 and a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame, the 6-foot-3-inch trick shooter and behind-the-back passer died Sunday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz. The late NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, who also played with the Globetrotters, once described Lemon as “the most … incredible basketball player I’ve ever seen.” As a tribute, the team said it would dedicate its 2016 90th anniversary tour to Lemon and teammate Marques Haynes, who died May.
