R.I.P. Curly Neal of The Globetrotters

Arguably the second most known Globetrotter after Meadowlark Lemon who passed in early '16, Curly got his on court nickname due to his shinny head as a reference to Curly of the Three Stooges. While comedy and tricks may be a thing with the Globetrotters he had considerable athleticism playing with the team from 1963-1985 when he retired. He leaves behind two daughters and their children. Curly was 77 and was livig in Scotsdale, Arizona at the time of passing. It is not known if the athlete's cause of death is related to the current pandemic.

RIP, never follow the Globetrotters, but was he in the era of teaming up with Scooby and the Gang in the 70's? Just wondering. Or was that a different era?

Yes. He he was in both short-lived cartoons and stood out in their thres guest episodes of The New Scooby Doo Movies and the Gilligan's Island television film that wrapped the series. He was known as the world's best dribbler.
