'Clown Prince of Basketball', Meadowlark Lemon, dies
Meadowlark Lemon, long-time star of the Harlem Globetrotters, has died at age 83.
His awe-inspiring hook shots and on-court gags were a staple of the team's travelling show during his 24 year career.
Lemon was a star player on the historically African-American team, as it played on tour through the racially-charged southern US, and on international trips.
Paul Blake reports from Washington.
