White Globetrotter dies

Mrs. Delicious is in the habit of reading the obituaries first; she sees more life that way. I suspect she's right again. I didn't even know there were white Globetrottersr : b

Bob Karstens, the third white player for the Harlem Globetrotters and the only one under a contract, who created many of their signature routines such as the pregame 'Magic Circle,' has died. He was 89.

Karstens died Dec. 31 in Redlands of natural causes, the team announced.

Other routines credited to Karstens include the team's behind-the-back backhand shot; the 'yo-yo' basketball; and the 'goofball,' a basketball filled with weights that made it bounce erratically.
