Tony Parker hits likely fake but still awesome trick shots (VIDEO)

No. I don’t think so.

But I still loved the video.

I would love to believe that these trick shots by Tony Parker and French YouTube star Rémi Gaillard are real, because they are awesome… but I just can’t. Not a back heel flick that flies that far with that little windup. Not the last one. Plus Gaillard is known as a prankster.

To be fair, Gaillard is known for soccer trick shots — watch the World Cup one, which is fantastic. Still, I just don’t buy it.

But I’ll watch it again.

    Spent a lot of time on that CGI then if those are fake. Fake shots usually lose sight of the ball in the frame. I’m going with the odds of 80 percent that this is real and just took a lot of takes.

    This is definitely not CGI. Real shots folks. They’d have to spend Hollywood money and time to do CGI to make it look that real. Notice the ball reflections on the floor. The ball doesn’t make odd movements. So that level of reality would take a lot of money to do via CGI to look that real. Plus if you blow up the pictures you would see pixel variances if it were CGI.

      Also notice how there are absolutely no witnesses except the camera man in the gym. Why don’t you think they wouldn’t spend “Hollywood money ” to do that?

      Why wouldn’t they spend “Hollywood money” to do that? And don’t you find it odd that there are is no one else in the gym besides the cameraman?
