Do kids today even know who Meadowlark Lemon is?

I saw him play once, in St. Louis in 1994. That day my interest in sports was awakened.
The next day it was quickly snuffed out, never to return.
More info about the good Mr. Lemon is available here. Yes, he is still alive, and no he has not had his forearms replaced with comically oversized basketballs, as depicted above. That's a trick played on you by a wiley photographer. Perhaps Walker Evans.
