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.

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 Was Absolutely Crushed by Steph Curry's Three Pointer and That Moment Became a Meme

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.

sports twitter ESPN Tried a Bold New Camera Angle and Everyone Hated It

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

These Twitter emoji are part of a promotion for that All-Star NBA game. They will be live until Monday morning. You can use them by Tweeting the All-Star's name with a hashtag.

via @NBA

Those following along with the All-Star game can also use these emojis to vote for the MVP by adding #KiaAllStarMVP along with their player of choice. 

via @NBA

They also have some amusing personal emojis for the broadcasters as well, although since fan voting only makes up 25% of the decision for MVP it's unlikely the broadcasters will end up getting the award.

When a noise complaint was called about a group of kids playing basketball too loudly, this Gainesville, FL police officer showed up to set them straight. And by set them straight, we mean dunking on them while playing basketball.

Hafthór Björnsson famous for his role on 'Game of Thrones' as Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane. We'll bet you didn't know that this massive godlike species of a man played professional basketball in Iceland before he took up lifting/moving very heavy things; and finally acting as his full-time career.

So, yeah. Take a moment to imagine this gigantic beast of a dude running down a basketball court, full speed, and with you as the only obstacle between him and the hoop.

Uhh, fu*k that noise is right. He's like one of those steroid-addled, veiny, superhuman, cartoon beasts from 'Space Jam,' but even bigger.

It takes a serious set of stones to openly mock LeBron James for being a crybaby when you're sitting four feet away from the demi-god of a man. An epic moment of awkwardness in every sense of the word.

Unfortunate Crop of The Day: Basketball Player is "Getting Loose" on Twitter Today With Chocolate Milk

Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kevin Love is the latest victim of Twitter's unfortunate crop.

The hoopster tweeted out a photo of his chocolate milk today and because of Twitter's uncanny ability to ruin every photo, it looked like he was holding a penis or phallic sex toy.

It also didn't help that he said he was "getting loose." If you know what he means.

He later changed the photo for a better version, but the Internet never forgets.

Pope Francis is now officially a baller.

The Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to the Vatican on Wednesday, and they performed a few tricks with the pope during his weekly meet-and-greet with the public.

At one point he tried to spin a basketball on his finger, but it didn’t stay up for very long. And the second attempt was even worse.

But he appeared to enjoy the whole experience nonetheless.

The team also gave him a jersey with his name and the number 90 on it (because the Globetrotters are 90 years old), and they said that he could play with them as an honorary member.

Pope John Paul II was also made an honorary Golbetrotter back in 2000.

The Globetrotters posted some more images of their meeting with Francis on Twitter.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine won the NBA All-Star Sprite Slam Dunk competition on Saturday night in New York, and he won over the crowd with a throwback to the 1996 movie “Space Jam.”

In his first attempt, he appeared on the court wearing Michael Jordan’s #23 Tune Squad jersey from the film while the Quad City DJs performed the theme song.

“I’m still on cloud nine. I feel like I’m dreaming,” he said. “Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it, so it’s a dream come true. I’m glad my family is here to witness it and go through it.”

LaVine, who got 2 perfect scores, is the second youngest winner in the competition’s history next to Kobe Bryant.
