i believe it. i've seen the videos those dudes have made and they're sick. this seems plausible, and it's a CRAZY shot.

the only thing that could make it fake was the curve on the ball

Definitely fake. The guy looked like he didnt even try and he made it. Computerized.

I dont know why it would be fake, if you took a bag of b-balls up to the top with you or someone shagging them for you, and just keep lauching them eventually one will drop.

Still not the longest ever shot, dont you remember Larry Bird and MJ's Mcdonald's commercials "over the freeway, off the building, threw the window off the backboard nothing but net) those were fake of course but cool commercials anyway.

that's believable considering the circumstances. when you're throwing any object that far and that downward wind resistance and gravity play funny tricks on it.

Real, it looks fake, only cause the ball is going down in a certain way, but its the winds direction, but I think its real. I'll bet you they took atleast more than 50 shots of them to get one in.

I think you would need to be there, maybe he should have done it during a football game.

That's exactly what I think, too. Probably miss badly about half the shots. Probably be pretty close to the hoop on a bunch of others. But you only need to get lucky once and there's your youtube vid.

If it is fake, they did a damn good job of it with the reverse angle and everything. It looks real to me, and I actually think it would be easier to make the shot by trying a hundred times than to do the CG and **** it would take to fake it.

Looks real.

The ball curving doesn't look fake at all. Considering you're throwing it at a very high spot, wind and air probably deter it majorly.

The multiple angles make it more believable ... Melo said it was fake on Top Ten last night, but he's just a hater.

I say real, once in a lifetime shot, but real.

fake. multiple points of view make it fake. you can't train a shot like that, so having multiple cameras on the set makes no sense if the chances of making it are so little. You only have multiple cameras if a) you know he's gonna make it (and that you can't know) or b) it's fake and you want it to look real.

fake.

Apparently if you look into it there have been editors looking at the video and say there are no flaws, and also physics people saying it's legit. Even though it looks like the ball curves and the wind took it.
