In town this week for what will surely be a game of totally normal regulation basketball on Saturday, the Harlem Globetrotters decided to mark World Trick Shot Day — which is today, apparently — by letting 'Trotter Zeus McClurkin chuck a basketball from the driver's seat of the City Museum bus.

For the uninitiated, said bus dangles precariously from the roof of said museum, some 160 feet above the ground.



Observe:


Just look at that form! The one-handed-bus-hookshot-via-roof fundamentals are strong in the 6"8' forward, who also owns the Guinness World Record for "most basketball slam dunks in one minute (individual)" with sixteen.

Do we even need to suggest the location for McClurkin's next trick shot? Get this man to the top of the Arch, pronto!
