Before he became the biggest loser in sporting history, Red Klotz knew how to win. He was a diminutive basketball star in his home town of Philadelphia and played for a championship professional team in the 1940s. But he didn’t become famous until he became player-coach of the Washington Generals in 1952. He played with the Generals until he was 63 and coached until he was 75.
