Giving Globetrotter Goose His Due

"The story of Reece 'Goose' Tatum, arguably one of the most influential athletes of all time, yet unknown to most basketball fans today, comes to life in a new documentary called GOOSE," TeamWorksMedia says. "As the leader of the Harlem Globetrotters, the most skilled squad in the world, Goose was more than just the architect of some of basketball's most iconic shots. A true sports icon, he possessed a rare combination of basketball talent and comedic genius, which made him a household name around the world. GOOSE celebrates the basketball legend, who was posthumously elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in the Class of 2011."

GOOSE premiered on ESPN on Sunday night. It's probably showing again right now.
