Curly Neal's Jersey to be Retired at MSG Number 22 to be honored during this special ceremony at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Still sporting the trademark shaved head, wide smile and infectious laugh that made him a pop culture icon for decades, basketball legend Curly Neal will have his number 22 retired by the world renowned Harlem Globetrotters at The World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden.
Curly will be just the fifth Globetrotter in the team's illustrious 82-year history to have his jersey number retired, joining some of the biggest names in basketball lore: Wilt Chamberlain (13), Meadowlark Lemon (36), Marques Haynes (20) and Goose Tatum (50). One of the truly magical dribblers and shooters ever to pick up a ball, Curly captured the imagination of fans worldwide, playing in more than 6,000 games in 97 countries with the Globetrotters. Number 22 played for 22 seasons in the red, white and blue, from 1963 to 1985.
Curly was part of one of the most extraordinary eras in the team's history, appearing on several popular television programs and specials, including "ABC's Wide World of Sports," "The Harlem Globetrotters Popcorn Machine," and "The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island." He was also immortalized in animation on "The Harlem Globetrotters" cartoon series and on episodes of "Scooby Doo."
"Curly Neal represents the purity of sport and everything that is great about the Globetrotters and the game of basketball," said Globetrotters CEO Kurt Schneider. "He helped build this organization into a worldwide phenomenon, and we are proud to bestow this honor upon him. He truly personifies wholesome family entertainment and elicits fond memories for millions of fans around the world."
