    Meadowlark Lemon, whose halfcourt hook shots, no-look behind-the-back passes and vivid clowning were marquee features of the feel-good traveling basketball show known as the Harlem Globetrotters for nearly a quarter-century, died on Sunday in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 83.

    When you hear Sweet Georgia Brown playing, the Globetrotters come to mind first.

    A master showman, tremendous athlete, and beloved figure. His sheer joy in entertaining changed attitudes of young kids across America, and was a subtle catalyst to instigate social change. His impact far exceeded anything happening on a wood floor.
