For Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blakes, everyday is World Trick Shot Day. But for the rest of us, only December 6 is.

So in honor of America’s favorite holiday, World Trick Shot Day, Buckets went to the Tower of the America in San Antonio, Texas to show us the true meaning of the holiday. It’s the highest shot ever in North America, and as he says, he goes to the top of the tower to “knock it down.”

Buckets takes an elevator to the top of the 58-story building and has to be strapped in via harness to keep from falling. Without much thought, he simply says, “World Trick Shot Day, baby. Let’s get buckets” and swish.

It’s amazing, disorienting, and sure to raise the World Trick Shot Day spirit in all of us.

In honor of World Trick Shot Day, here are some trick shot gifs to waste time with.

Sometimes you think you’ve got life in palm of your hand. Sometimes you think you’ve got it all figured out. Sometimes you just want to run out the clock because whatever it is, it’s in the bag.

Other times, you’re just wrong.

That’s what happened to this poor basketball player who thought his team was winning, so he ran out the clock — he was just wrong.

In last night’s game against Brown University, Bryant University’s Ikenna Ndugba must’ve missed the tie-breaking point in the last 10 seconds because they were still down one point. Thinking that he just had to run out the clock, Ndugba decided to just dribble out the clock and, well, ouch.

They say you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, and it’s rarely been more true than here.

Kevin Durant decided to leave Oklahoma City and a lot of fans are pretty upset. Now they're taking it out on him in Yelp reviews for his restaurant KD's.

In a rare case of OP delivering, a man who promised to eat his shirt on Reddit actually did it. What started out as an offhand comment about the Western Conference Finals turned into this video.

Although he only ate a little bit of a shirt because he doesn't want to die, as far as we're concerned it's the dedication that counts. 

Paul Allen, all around rich guy and owner of the Portland Trail Blazers, was in attendance to see his team lose to the Golden State Warriors. It almost seemed like there was hope for the Blazers until Steph Curry made an effortless looking three point shot. Thankfully, a cameraman caught Paul Allen's expression for the internet to meme at that exact moment.

Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar were spotted together at an LA Clippers Basketball game watching intently. Their expressions unsurprisingly led to some jokes at their expense on the internet.

Jay-Z just wants to watch the game guys, can't you put your differences aside?

Eventually, though, they found some common ground.

During a Michigan-Ohio State basketball game, ESPN debuted a camera angle that was supposed to make people feel like they were sitting courtside. Unfortunately, it was not the experience they hoped for. 


via @BTpowerhouse

It turned out to be a weird angle that didn't account for the referees who ended up blocking out much of the screen anytime they walked by.  People hated it so much, it's probably safe to say that ESPN will not be trying this again. via @AceAnbender, @eboland11, @BryMac@Reflog18
