In the realm of basketball-themed YouTubery, the man who can sink three dozen different trick shots is king. Viewers just can't get enough of people shooting basketballs off roofs, while riding tigers, and with chickens attached to the ball. OK, I made those last two up, but I think they have a lot of potential. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to collaborate.
Milwaukee Bucks forward and human rhinoceros Jon Brockman(notes) has realized this market exists and has been trying his hand at various trick shots to capitalize. As a role player, Brockman's in-game contributions often get overlooked. Luckily, he can take these shots to get noticed.
And yes, not all of these are actually trick shots: one is a dunk, and another is just making two free throws in quick succession. Then again, maybe those shots qualify as crazy for a professional rebounder who eats sedimentary rocks for breakfast.
