Gareth Bale took on the NBA Challenge

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale is one of the most prominent figures in football today and a star amongst stars on a powerful Real Madrid side.

Bale recently traded in his Real Madrid jersey for a Miami Heat jersey and really surprised many during his NBA Challenge.

Gareth Bale came onto the court dressed in a full Miami Heat uniform, with his name, "Bale" on the back and was sporting the number 11. He also had an official NBA headband on, for style more than anything else.

Bale was on the court to take part in the NBA Challenge, where you have five attempts to shoot the ball from half court. Although the Real Madrid star's form was rather unorthodox, he managed to hit three of the five shots. That was not a typo. Again, he hit three out of five half court shots.


The Welsh international shouldn't quit his day job though. Bale has been a crucial part of Real Madrid's success, winning the Champions League with them last year, along with the Copa del Rey, the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

On top of Bale's club success with Real Madrid, he is also the guiding light for a Welsh side lacking in the talent department.

He has won the Wales Player of the Year award for every year since 2010. He has also made the UEFA Team of the year in 2011 and 2013. He has a total of 49 appearances for Wales and 16 goals in those appearances.

Gareth Bale is just 25 years of age, young enough to make a run in the NBA?

Just kidding, Bale should continue forming magic on the pitch...
