Two-Year-Old Boy’s Basketball Trick Shot Video

Amazing shots from a kid (Titus) between 18 and 24 months old. He began shooting baskets shortly after learning to walk, we started filming some, and then got totally carried away.

This is the trick shot video that makes other trick shot videos look like a bunch of old guys who should have something better to do — like retire, turn up their pacemakers, or join an assisted living facility.

  1. Ha! That “Skyfall” honest trailer was pretty funny.

    That Basketball kid is amazing!

  2. It’s good to see that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon gets the attention that it deserves around these parts. It’s not as cynical or even mean-spirited (looking at you, Leno!) as other late night shows and always manages to put me in a good mood. Love it!

    • I LOVE Fallon! Have since his first show!

    • Letterman is a lot more mean-spirited than Leno. It seems he has gone hard left in recent years. You should have seen his first interview with Bill O’Reilly. It was obvious he hated the man.

  3. eugene hitler joke (unless it’s supposed to be the same guy) is directly stolen from an episode of “Happy Endings”

  4. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t yet seen every one of those Stripper movies…but I’ll try to rectify that! I noticed the most infamous one wasn’t even included…”Showgirls” with Elizabeth Berkley…which was like seeing a real, trashy stripper.

    Baby Gangnam was awesome!!
