Rim Shot From 50 Feet


Trick shots are the hallmark of the Harlem Globetrotters but making a basket from the back seat of a Super Cub was a highlight even for the storied team. Notwithstanding that the first trick was folding the basketball player into the seat, the video prepared by the team shows him sinking the basket from about 50 feet above the runway at Woodbine Airport in New Jersey on Aug. 8. It does not say how many times they had to try before they got the video they wanted. The Globetrotters tweeted that it was the first time in 92 years that they’d pulled off that kind of stunt.
