    Link: Fairly Epic Basketball Trick Shots - Every one of these trick shots were studied at I-A-B HQ`s video laboratory and yes, they`re all legit and bad-ass.

    Holy crap!! Man! These kids definitely should be signed up for some serious basketball teams and on their way to the NBA. I mean, that is... if basketball were a sport where you stand around all day hoping to bounce balls off stationary objects from long distances and impossible angles in order to make it into a hoop... all the while trying to capture it on film. I mean, yeah, if basketball were that kind of sport they would be AWESOME!! Hellz yeah son!!!

    Hell, I think this video has motivated me to go out and spend hours on end to try to make a seemingly impossible basketball shot. It sounds like a near perfect way to spend my days and will definitely help me build all the skills I need toward a brighter future. Peace out everyone.

    These are better when they don`t cheer and wave, when they are real matter-of-fact, like, "Yeah - I knew I could do that." It`s hard to resist the temptation (especially after 100 failed shots) but makes for a much more impressive video.

    These kids are doing it wrong, when you finally achieve the shot, you cant celebrate it that much, shows you have been trying it for hours..

    I just don`t get it, the fascination with trick/luck basketball shots. I`m not bashing it; I just don`t understand why people care, any more than I understand why people like watching baseball, or nascar.

    You have a 1 in 10000 chance of doing something, so you do it some 7000 times until you get it on camera. It`s no different than sitting in front of a dartboard with a camera and editing together all the bulls-eyes you get. It`s so weird.

    When will people learn that it only counts as a basketball shot during a basketball game. Everyone of these shots can be replicated. And most were done at the same house, very lame.

    nothing that great. im never really impressed with these though. you never know how many times they tried before they succeeded, and the kids are always way too overexcited.

    I`d like to point out to the "meh" crowd:

    Some people have remarkable spatial awareness and targeting skills. We constantly put athelets on pedestal because of what they are able to do, but because these guys aren`t on a "team", no one can be bothered?

    I regularly go to a shooting range, and there`s one older guy there (at least 65, because he`s been retired for a few years) who can`t hit the broad side of a barn with a shotgun at 5 paces, but he can freehand a quarter to knock the ember off a cigarette at 50 feet. Skill? You bet. Especially when he can hook it around blind corners and hit the cig just based on where the smoke is coming from.

    For every one of these shots, there are probably about 50 hours of outtakes.

    I bet the original few videos like this were TRULY legit, but now these people just try for hour on end to make these shots. They`re truly awesome when they`re spontaneous single shot wonders; after being rehearsed for dozen of shots over several hours and then chopping the "shots that made it" into a compilation video it loses it`s luster.

    Time to move on.
