The Harlem Globetrotters are better known for pulling off tricks, hijinks and unthinkable shots than for actually playing basketball games.
In the video above, Globetrotter Hawk Thomas sinks a money ball from the nose bleed section at Madison Square Garden. He didn’t just make it rain from downtown, he shot it from the suburbs.
Who knows how many shot attempts Thomas took before he made the one captured in this footage, but in both angles of the shot, we lose track of the ball for a split second in the lights.
Although some viewers are skeptical about the legitimacy of the shot, it’s more fun to believe the shot was real than to question it. It’s either an epic shot or incredible video editing. Either way, hats off the the Globetrotters for an entertaining clip.
Bonus Video: Remember ten years ago, when we all wanted so badly to believe that Powerade’s secret footage of LeBron’s five-in-a-row full court shots was real?
