    Wow, that looks amazing. But I bet they have 100s of hours of footage of near misses...Still, a nice video none the less

    Its gotta be faked, theres absolutely no way you can whack a basketball from that distance with a skateboard, do you realise how heavy a basketball is?

    If there isn't hundreds of hours of missed shots then these fellas should be playing professional basketball (rather than hanging round an empty warehouse).

    Reminds me of the masses of guys you see doing 'football' tricks over the last couple of years - none of them can actually play the game itself. They are basically circus tricksters.

    pretty impressive, i doubt it's fake and i'm sure they missed plenty while practicing, but pretty much anyone can sink a 3 pointer with practice, its all about knowing how hard and in what direction to throw a ball, but it doesn't mean they'd be any good at playing basketball, since the actual scoring part of the game is more or less a formality these days, it's actually getting into a position where you can actually shoot that takes skill.
