    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    Not really sure what to think. That 2nd view is more convincing I think.

    I don't know . . . if that's fake I salute the person who edited the video. They're obviously a master at it.

    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    The Dude Perfect site has some other entertaining videos. Seems like the kind of thing you could pull off if you had all day to chuck basketballs from the top of the stadium. After watching some of the other videos, that's clearly what they do.

    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    I want to think the video was altered in someway, but it is pretty convincing after watching that second video.

    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    I bet it's real. I'm sure it took him 100 attempts, but still. The view from the ground has me convinced. Look at the velocity that the ball hits with.

    Not if he took some air out of the ball...

    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    Fake. But it's interesting how the ball goes right and then drifts back to the left.

    I say it's fake because if someone was throwing a ball from that far away, the people on the ground should be scared out of their wits, and obviously they're not. The whole basket should have moved a lot more than it did. Also, if that ball were to strike the rim, the backboard would more than likely shatter.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    Don't know what to think. The 2nd video makes me think that it might be real, but the ball looked like it went too far to the left after he threw it.

    Re: Worlds longest basketball shot?

    If you're throwing a basketball overhand like that (watch his follow through) you will see why it curves so much to the left...
