    Saw them on TV the other night. Good for them that they are still making people laugh.

    Great memory as a kid. Meadowlark Lemon. Curley. I remember shooting hoops in the driveway whistling Sweet Georgia Brown. Pretending I had even a hint of basketball skill.

    Saw them in Miami in 1955 when they were at their peak. It was a great experience for a young kid.

    I don't care about basketball but have always wanted to go see them. I'm pretty good at spinning a ball on my finger.

    My uncle took me to see them at the old Olympia Stadium in Detroit back in the mid 70s when I was a kid. Great time.

    We used to go annually when I was a kid. I try to carry on tradition and take my little ones annually.
