Trick Shots

  1. Video: Globetrotters, Dude Perfect and some crazy shots

    Nov 24, 2011, 8:33 PM EDT

    Globetrotters

    For your Thanksgiving evening entertainment, how about a trick shot video with Dude Perfect (you’ve seen them here before) and the Harlem Globetrotters. How you going to beat that? NFL football? Ha. (Okay, maybe that is better.) Best part for me, that is Amazing Race veteran Big Easy trying to hit the fishing pole shot.…

  2. Video: Jimmer Fredette has NBA range on his shot

    Jul 20, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    There remain plenty of questions about how Jimmer Fredette’s game will translate to the NBA level. What was never in question was if he could shoot. He has range. As he showed at his Jimmer Camp, he has half court range. Not that coach Westphal wants him shooting from half court. First, not an efficient…

  3. Video: Steve Nash’s soccer trick shot

    Jun 14, 2011, 12:35 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Just for fun, we bring you Steve Nash pimping Chinese athletics company Lu You in a new ad for the company (run overseas). You know Nash loves soccer and plays all summer, so this shot really shouldn’t come as a shock, but it is pretty cool. Lu You is the Chinese shoe company Nash inked…

  4. Kyle Singler with trick shots all over Duke campus

    May 23, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Kyle Singler Duke

    Kyle Singler gets buckets. This is my favorite trick shot video in a while. Not just because Singler is a national champion and a likely late first round pick in the NBA draft. And not just because Mike Krzyzewski makes an appearance. It’s because this is the most creative one I’ve seen in a while.…

  5. Dude Perfect strikes again, this time from an airplane

    May 16, 2011, 4:39 PM EDT

    Those plucky young lads known as “Dude Perfect,” who first became famous for making some insane shots from their backyard and hitting what was then “The World’s Longest Shot,” continue to move up in the world. This season, Dude Perfect have already been contracted to hit trick shots for The Sacramento Kings and GMC. Recently,…

  6. Video: Blake Griffin’s over-the-balcony trick shot

    Apr 12, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    And you thought Blake Griffin didn’t have an outside shot. He’s got one, he just needs a balcony in the way, then he puts a little more arc under it. If there had been a car for him to shoot over too… Thanks to The Rookie Wall for finding this and sending it along.

  7. Video: Bucks’ Brockman knows how trick shots are done

    Mar 24, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Jon Brockman

    Jon Brockman is more than just the best big man to come out of the University of Washington since Spencer Hawes. No, he is a well-rounded human being basketball player. Complete with a repertoire of trick shots and a catchphrase — “that’s how it’s done.” Pretty soon that will be sweeping the nation and we’ll…

  8. Video: Lamar Odom with the rainbow circus shot

    Jan 26, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Pretty much everything was working for the Lakers against the Jazz Tuesday. Case in point: This prayer, rainbow arch shot from Lamar Odom. No way that falls, except of course it does for the Lakers on this night. Really, this shot was the highlight of a game that was over early.

  9. Trick shots with Ty Lawson

    Dec 10, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Off the rafters, one bounce, nothing but net… It’s almost time for the weekend, when you’ll head out and try your own trick shots in the driveway, eventually breaking a window or having the ball hit the sleeping dog on the porch. So rather than anger man’s best friend, why not let the Denver Nuggets…

  10. Trick shots at home with Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    Dec 8, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Griffin_Jordan

    Don’t go there with the “they should make more shots in the game” comments. Blake Griffin took time out from hanging in front of the television watching SportsCenter (“Hey, there I an again!”) to go shoot trick shots for your entertainment. You should thank them. Then you should watch the video.

  11. Finally an accurate passer in Cowboy Stadium — new Dude Perfect trick shot

    Oct 11, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Tell me the Cowboys couldn’t use a guy who could throw like this behind Romo.

  12. Knocking down the three with your 9-iron

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac… It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! (Thanks to TrueHoop for finding these. And Henry did research on these — sometimes blogging for a living takes you down some odd paths…

  13. Summertime poolside trick shots

    Aug 20, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    It’s the hottest time of the year, and you are spending your days by the pool. Or wishing you were spending your days by the pool. These guys were doing that and dreaming up trick shots, then risking broken bones and sunburns to bring them to you. Enjoy your summertime hoops fun, best served with…

  14. Best trick shot we've seen in a while: From a free fall ride

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    You all know the free fall ride — the ones at amusement parks where you go up to the top of some tall structure then they essentially drop you off it. You get the sensation of falling without having to jump out of a plane, or the sensation of smashing into the ground. But do…

  15. Ever seen a shot off a silo before?

    Aug 6, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    I care little about the semantics of the trick shot — what is the longest/farthest/whatever. I know that’s a big controversy and all for some folks, just can’t get into it. I just like the shots. And as I live in the city, I had never thought of what the East Side crew did. Enjoy.…
