Presumably to promote the new Space Jam movie, this is a video of basketballer Tristan Jass performing some sort of spinny over-the-back layup trick-shot that can only be described as “How did he do that?” and “I would have broken both my legs.” Honestly, I think I may have sprained
This is a video of Todd Robbins of Kuma Films performing a variety of trick shots with a rope dart, a Chinese martial arts weapons similar to the Japanese kunai on a rope popularized by Scorpion in Mortal Kombat. Get over here! “Finish him.” Fatality. “Toasty!” Haha, that brings back

This is a short video of dare-to-dreamer Casey Loftus demonstrating a variety of his very impressive trick shots. He’s got everything: chipping a golf ball into the mouth of a five-gallon water jug, throwing a book in between two other books on a bookshelf, banking a Wii disk off the
