Globetrotters’ Marques Haynes, best dribbler ever, dead at 89

Marques Haynes, the legendary Harlem Globetrotters showman often called the greatest dribbler in basketball history, who played at Langston University has died. He was 89.

He died Friday in Plano, Texas, of natural causes, the Globetrotters said. CEO Kurt Schneider said “basketball has lost one of its most iconic figures.”

Haynes made the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1998, the first Globetrotter to be so honored. He had two stints with the touring team — from 1947-53 and 1972-79.
