BOSTON (CBS) – WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton got the chance to take the court with the Harlem Globetrotters, and the video will not disappoint.

The Globetrotters, in town for a couple of games at the TD Garden, hosted a skills challenge Monday morning at the Joan and Ray Kroc Center Gymnasium in Dorchester. Media celebrities had a chance to show off their moves and give away tickets to the weekends show to the charity of their choice.
