Stick Trick Saturday: Hoops Challenge

Because of the NBA Finals, we are merging two sports in this week’s Stick Trick Saturday. Trick shots, sinking baskets and big time stalls is the game!

The NBA Finals are all set, it’s LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers versus Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in a best of 7 series starting on Thursday night. With all of this basketball on the brain, I came up with this week’s Stick Trick Saturday competition, the Hoops Challenge!

Required Steps

  1. Send the ball through the rim from Anywhere on the court and catch it before it hits the ground in a stall!
  2. Repeat the process, but starting from the Free Throw Line.
  3. Start on one side of the basket and send the ball over the rim and catch it in a stall on the other side. Immediately send the ball back over the rim and finish the stick trick in another stall.

I know you’ve got what it takes to complete the Hoops Challenge! Get out on the court and let the creativity flow, send the evidence in to!

Bonus Points – FREE Ghost Shaft!

Collecting a bonus point should be a piece of cake this week, all you need to do is any sort of trick shot that impresses me. Anything mind-blowing, hilarious, creative and/or outside of the ordinary will receive at least One Bonus Point.


My favorite video this week is going to get hooked up with a Ghost Shaft from Wolf Athletics in the color of their choice so let the best trickster win!
