    Uhmmm, That was UNDER the statue on top of the tower, Minor point though.

    Was still a rather impressive shot.

    Yes its very real, the trick is just to try it over and over again several times. Then post the shoot you got right.

    It`s funny how the douche is wearing sports wear like he`s about to play an actual game of basketball when in reality he`s sitting on top of a monument throwing a ball hopefully into a hoop.

    After the video I saw of on how they fake these shots they have all become suspect. They have lost their edge.

    "fake shot is fake"

    Why does every good thing for people like you have to be fake?

    It probably took a lot of tries but this is definitely not fake.

    @SebastianLam
    You`re right, I forgot about the law they passed making it illegal to wear sports clothes unless you are actually playing in a game. Why isn`t this guy wearing a suit while doing this, because that would be much more suitable(no pun intended), right? Go somewhere else, troll.

    It must have sucked when he missed the other 300 tries and had to go get the ball and bring it back up.

    would anyone else rather see the video of them missing over and over again instead of the one shot that goes in?
    also, what happens if the ball were to hit rim, instant backboard shatter?
