When it comes to basketball trick shots and trying to get them on film, you can never truly know how many attempts it took to get the shot. I know when I was a kid, my friend and I would constantly be trying to video trick shots that would take us entire afternoons just to make once. Hell, we even lowered the hoop to 6 feet and did some camera tricks to make it look like a couple of barely 5 foot kids can dunk like Zach LaVine on a full sized hoop. Then I stumble upon this video on ESPN.com and I had to write something about it. This to me might be one of the coolest trick shots ever. I mean just look at how organic this video came about. It's security footage of this school custodian nonchalantly draining a backwards half court shot...take that Steph Curry.
What I love about this video is this custodian is just like us, he sees a basketball and a hoop and just wants to make some magic happen. Although, if I'm that custodian, I don't think I am ever picking up a basketball again, it will never get any better than that.
Thanks to the Twitter accound @Leathermank for uploading this video.
