Basketball’s Clown Prince, who spent 25 years as a Harlem Globetrotter, recalls schooling himself in the sport. “I came along during a time when we had no television. If you had a television, you were very wealthy—and in my neighborhood, wasn’t nobody wealthy,” he tells Conservative Moms host Mary Baker. “But one Saturday morning, I got my vision. And my vision was watching the Globetrotters on a newsreel at the Ritz movie theater in Wilmington, North Carolina… And I said to myself, ‘This is my dream… But when I got home, I realized I had no place to play.
