The first Tuesday in December was officially declared “World Trick Shot Day” and this year, Harlem Globetrotters’ star Buckets Blakes produced one of the highest trick shots ever made in North America.
He hit an incredible shot off the roof of the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio, Texas, from 176m up.
World Trick Shot Day, which fell on Dec 6 this year, is dedicated to giving fans the chance to celebrate what they are able to do with a basketball, a hoop, and a little creativity.
The Harlem Globetrotters are known for their amazing basketball skills and wizardry. The team combines athleticism, theatre and comedy in their exhibition games.
