Trotters on Extreme Makeover

The world famous Harlem Globetrotters recently appeared on the ABC-TV reality series, "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" on August 5, 2012.  The team was part of the year-long process that helped a man named Jonathan lose 266 pounds, including an exclusive on-court workout with Special K Daley, Dizzy Grant, and Ant Atkinson.  Globetrotter players originally met Jonathan early last fall near Seattle and remained in touch with him over the next 10 months via texts and emails, encouraging him during his weight loss program.  And the Trotters were on hand as the "new" Jonathan was unveilved to the world.  You can watch the full episode here.
