Basketball wizards: for real?

Writing about web page http://video.warwick.ac.uk/bball.mov

This is a 9MB QuickTime video of some guys pulling off basketball shots which start out impressive and move on through stunning and up to unbelievable. By the time the skateboard puts in an appearance, I was starting to believe that there must be some sneaky editing or CG fiddling going on, but if there is, it's very well done - the footage looks totally authentic. Can people actually do these things?

  1. If it is real, you have to consider how many of the shots didn't make the video. Probably about 95% of them.

    That's a big bag of crazy. I'm guessing that it's real

    Wow – it looks real to me, and like Andrew says for every shot that goes in I bet there are dozens more that aren't shown. Still good though!
