Just saw that. Man that stinks. He was as talented as he was entertaining. When I was growing up, the Globetrotters were huge. Every kid dreamed about playing for the Globetrotters as much as they did (if not more) than playing in the NBA. They made TV shows about them, and they filled arenas everywhere they went. I'm so glad for the memories I have from those early teams, and Curly was the guy, more than any other, that embodied those memories.

Rest easy Curly Neal

RIP Mr. Neal.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

Oh man I saw Curly quite a few times. So fun to watch. Reminded me a lot of Magic, a true entertainer.

I used to love him with Mo and Larry.

Seriously, RIP to one of the clown princes of bucket ball.
