What do the young NBA basketball enthusiasts of today do when the NBA is in offseason but the sun is shining outside?
Set up their camera and attempt crazy, out of this world trick shots that's what.
And today we might just have seen one of the best ever after a video starring a young man by the name of Kevin Libertowski surfaced. A video that involves two basketballs, two backflips and a trampoline.

When Sports Center Top 10 describes it as potentially "one of the best trick shots we have ever seen" you know it is worth a look. So without further ado step forward Mr. Libertowski...
Mastering the art of bouncing on a trampoline is difficult enough without throwing in some acrobatics and not one, but two length-of-the-garden baskets.
According to the trick shot expert himself the trampoline is situated over 60 yards away from the net just to make it that little more impressive. He does though admit it took him several attempts to perfect the double swish effect of getting both balls to land in the basket simultaneously...Yeah, because that is the difficult part.
As you might expect from the skills on display, Libertowski isn't new to the trick shot game and has posted a number of videos in the past. This one though has to be his, and maybe the genre's, best ever.
Serial trickshot maker
The video already has over 66,000 views on YouTube at the time of writing although, scrolling through his other uploads, he still has some way to go to beat another of his own insane trickshots.
The above video, entitled "World's Best Trampoline Trickshot" and uploaded in 2013, has over a quarter of a million hits.
Trickshots might get a look of disapproval from NBA purists but surely no one can deny they are a damn sight more exciting that sitting down to watch a New York Knicks game has been recently.
