7 Incredible Trick Shots and Crazy Plays


-He just won $75,000
with a half court hooker. JACOB SOBOROFF: Ah! You did it! ALEX: You made the
half court shot! LeBron! JACOB SOBOROFF: Oh! ALEX: Oh! JACOB SOBOROFF: LeBron took his
talents on top of this dude. Oh! What’s up, guys? Today we’re talking about
the most incredible shots and plays you have
ever seen in sports. You know what was
one of the best? ALEX: What? JACOB SOBOROFF:
What we just saw. You’ll find this video
on the NBA channel. It has over 32 million views. Michael Drysch, that
50-year-old computer technician, was flown out from
Southern Illinois, and The LeBron James
Family Foundation game him this $75,000. He won 75 big ones and
a squeeze from LeBron. ALEX: I don’t know
which one’s better, the squeeze or the money. JACOB SOBOROFF: Mo’
money, more problems. ALEX: Yeah. More LeBron, more– JACOB SOBOROFF: Less problems. ALEX: Yeah, more
on the floories– JACOB SOBOROFF: More squeezed. ALEX: Jacob, this is Boise
State’s top five trick plays. [MUSIC – RUN DMC, “IT’S TRICKY”] -Here’s a trick play. It’s a fumble-rooskie,
and Williams [INAUDIBLE] puts Boise State on the board. JACOB SOBOROFF: Oh,
and he’s pretending. ALEX: Oh. JACOB SOBOROFF: And then he– ALEX: They thought
he had the ball. He didn’t. JACOB SOBOROFF: The two of
us should host [INAUDIBLE]. ALEX: Yeah, we
definitely should. We’re going to kill it. -Turnover. Throws it on the face. For the tight end. ALEX: This comes from
Bronco nation news. JACOB SOBOROFF: These are
so tricky that they’ve got to have hundreds
of thousands of views. ALEX: You would think,
but they only have 3,000. JACOB SOBOROFF: So
which one of these was annexation to
Puerto Rico, bro? ALEX: [SIGHS] What? JACOB SOBOROFF: Was ALEX: That was “Little Giants.” JACOB SOBOROFF: (WHISPERING)
“Little Giants.” LIZZIE: Miles, are you a fan– MILES: Yes. LIZZIE: –of highlight reels? MILES: Love highlight reels. LIZZIE: Are you a
fan of awesome dunks? MILES: Yes. LIZZIE: Are you a fan
of 6’8″ tall ladies? MILES: Duh. LIZZIE: Yeah. -As her college
career went along, just being able
to run the floor, and that’s what she does. MILES: Look at that swat. LIZZIE: Oh, this
isn’t even fair. MILES: Get that out, get it out. LIZZIE: This is Brittney’s debut
game for the Phoenix Mercury. She scored 17 points,
pulled down 8 rebounds, and dunked twice. She was a three
time All-American, and she was named AP
Player of The Year, and Most Outstanding Player
of the Final Four in 2012. MILES: Whoo! LIZZIE: Also, Brittney
Griner, recently engaged. Her fiance is Gloria Johnson. MILES: Of the Tulsa Shock. – –history has– goes flying. MILES: Oh man, someone cooking
up some sweet potatoes? Because I smell like yam. I’m talking crazy shots. These are some of
the top 10 shots from the 2014 ZEN-NOH World
Team Table Tennis Championships in Tokyo. LIZZIE: Whoa! No way! What’s happening? Uh oh. MILES: This guy just
did the rockaway. He just moved back so far. This is from the International
Table Tennis Federation’s channel. This tournament happened
late April to early May. This was officially the most
followed world championships in history. LIZZIE: I’m sorry. MILES: I don’t know officially. LIZZIE: Am I supposed to
be calling it table tennis? Is ping pong like the
bad way to say it? MILES: It’s table tennis. LIZZIE: Have I been
offending people for years unknowingly about–? MILES: No, no, no. It’s just you’re going
to look like you don’t know what you’re talking about. LIZZIE: That’s fine. I don’t know what
I’m talking about. MILES: Someone says ping pong,
they get hustled at the table. ALI: So rather than risk
giving up a game changing hit, the coach of the Delano
Tigers, Dan Paulson, called for the trick
play called, “el black.” With two outs and
the bases loaded, the pitcher fakes a pick
off throw to second. The third base runner is forced
into taking off for home, then the pitcher gets
him out at the plate. Whoa, that’s some pretty
good acting skills, as if well rehearsed. CARLY: I spent most
of the time playing baseball in the outfield. Me and my friend would
compare our socks which were fuzzy or lacey. ALI: It’s the kind of
baseball story I like. CARLY: Now that’s all you
need to know about baseball. ALI: Ali, we’ve talked
about baseball already. CARLY: But now we’re talking
about high school basketball. ALI: All right. CARLY: One of the greatest
shots of all time. This is from a high school
student called Khalil Edney. Among some circles it
was known as, “the shot.” -Edney tosses it. It’s knocked around,
and Mount Vernon’s going to hold on and win. But hold on, one
sec– oh, goodness! ALI: Wow. CARLY: That’s crazy. -I think he got that off. -I think he got it off as well. CARLY: They were against
another local team, and that team had
won the championship seven years in a row. And this was the shot
that took them down. ALI: That’s amazing. CARLY: And he won an
ESPY nomination for it. He did not win the award,
sadly but to be nominated is a super big thing. This video only
has 17,000 views. So I have to go home
and show it to my dad because it’ll be one video
he will actually like. ALI: Nice. CARLY: Unlike the cat videos. JACOB SOBOROFF: Gael Monfils
is an incredible French tennis player. And here he sits down to look
at his best shots from Toronto, and talks about how he would
like to win the French Open if he could. GAEL MONFILS: You do the show,
but you want to win the point, because it’s more valuable
that you win the point. So it’s sometimes harder. I think I didn’t
have much time to– JACOB SOBOROFF: Oh! ALEX: Three strikes! JACOB SOBOROFF: Oh! GAEL MONFILS: To hit a
forehand or a backhand. JACOB SOBOROFF: This comes
from the ATP World Tour, and has got over 30,000 views. I think a lot of
people wonder what is going through a
professional athlete’s head when they’re making some of
the hardest shots around. So it’s cool to hear him
talk about how he felt and what he was thinking when
he was making these shots. [SPEAKING FRENCH] ALEX: I don’t know– I don’t
know what you just said, but I think I’m in
love with you now. JACOB SOBOROFF: This is some
of our favorite trick plays and trick shots. Let us know what you thought
of them in the comments, and let us know if you’ve
got any of your own. ALEX: We’ve got a
playlist with even more, so stick around after the show. JACOB SOBOROFF: Now
play us out, KurtisBlow!
