On March 26, the sports world learned that Fred "Curly" Neal, Harlem Globetrotter legend, passed away.
Neal wrote a perspective piece for USA Today in 2016 about what it meant to him to play for the Globetrotters, who broke down racial barriers as one of the first all-black basketball teams in the 1920s.
UPDATE: The Harlem Globetrotters pay tribute to Fred "Curly" Neal in the tweet below. Neal was the team's slick ballhandler, playing more than 6,000 games for the Globetrotters, TMZ reports.
"The Harlem Globetrotters have been -- and will continue to be - at the forefront of breaking down racial barriers in this country", he said. Neal and the Globetrotters were so popular that they were immortalized in the Hanna-Barbera animated series named after them.
Neal was a star high school player in Greensboro, North Carolina, and led Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte to the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association title after averaging 23 points per game as a senior.
In 2008, Neal became the fifth Globetrotters player to have his jersey retired, joining Wilt Chamberlain, Marques Haynes, Meadowlark Lemon and Goose Tatum.
Neal was one of just five Globetrotters to have his number retired, an honor he received in 2008.
Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, said it was "hard to express how much joy Curly Neal brought to my life growing up".
