Tony Parker, French Prankster Battle in Epic Basketball vs. Soccer Trick Shot Competition


Tony Parker opted to sit out this summer’s FIBA World Cup in Spain. It doesn’t mean the Spurs’ French point guard isn’t playing hoops, necessarily. Here’s a video of Parker engaged in a pretty fun basketball/soccer trick shot competition with Rémi Gaillard, whom lists “prankster” as his occupation on Wikipedia. Actually, the second line of Gaillard’s Wiki page is pretty great, reading: “After losing his job at a shoe store, (caught stealing a pair of Nike shoes) Rémi began to use his free time to have fun and run pranks on the public.”

Real or fake, it’s still impressive, obviously much moreso if the shots aren’t altered. You be the judge — you’ll get a kick out of it either way!
