Meadowlark Lemon Celebration of Life

Harlem Globetrotters stars Buckets Blakes, Moose Weekes, El Gato Melendez and Zeus McClurkin payed homage to the legendary Meadowlark Lemon - who passed away in December 2015 - at St. Vincent de Paul in Phoenix during a celebration of Meadowlark's life on April 25, 2016... which would have been Meadowlark's 84th birthday.

Celebrity Fight Night and its founder, Jimmy Walker, dedicated a basketball court bearing Meadowlark's name to St. Vincent de Paul, and the current Globetrotters' stars honored Meadowlark with a Magic Circle for the hundreds of fans on hand, which included dignitaries and celebrities such as Basketball Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens, and Baseball Hall of Famers Tony La Russa and Ferguson Jenkins, who played for the Globetrotters from 1967-1969.

The Globetrotters presented Meadowlark's wife, Cynthia, with a special commemorative Meadowlark Globetrotters jersey. The team has dedicated their 90th year to Meadowlark and fellow Hall of Famer Marques Haynes, who passed away in May 2015.
