    Real or fake? (Its guys from Texas A&M so I feel obligated to believe them as I definitely drank the koolaid while I was there.)

    I'll admit to being a bit skeptical (these days, one almost has to be), but if its real, that's pretty darn incredible. Though the angle makes it rather easier :p

    I'd like to see Michael Jordan and Larry Bird try that one out.

    That has to be fake. It would take an enormous amount of force to throw it that far. The ball would be coming in at such force that I doubt it would make a perfect bank into the net.

    It's not really that impressive. How many times did it take them to make it? That is if it is real.

    I found more info on this.

    Not sure if that'll go directly to the right video or not, but there is a video on the guys who did the shot in the opening post doing other crazy shots. And apparently the shot only took 30 tries to make it.
