This Isn't Nearly As Easy To Do As It Looks

You know how in basketball games with less than one second on the clock, it's pretty hard to get up a decent shot. Mainly because by the time you catch the ball and go up to shoot, the clock has expired.

Well, here's a solution for you. Why not just pop the ball up into the air like this kid does during a high school basketball in Oklahoma - for a 3-pointer. Seriously, it works every time. And by "every time" I mean "almost never."

And I know I can't be the only one who thinks he deserves 6 points instead of 3 for degree of difficulty on that shot.

And suddenly the young man realized all those games of volleyball in PE class weren't a complete waste of time.

Just before halftime he bounced it off his head into the basket, just to up the difficulty.

OMG, that was pretty cool!!! I have to agree with CalBoomer though, why not? At least give yourself a chance.

I love how they act so nonchalant about it. I guess the adage "act like you've done it before" applies here.

But it'll hurt my field goal %......
