Even If I Cheat I Wouldn’t Beat Him

Remember that basketball shooting game from the Thermaltake party at Computex Taipei?

There was a basketball shooting game at the party. It’s pretty much the same as the ones you see at an amusement park. The game is a lot of fun and I was able to score a high of 145 points. However, I noticed the high score was a crazy 268 points. No matter how hard I tried, I never came close to beating it. So, I got evil with it. Watch the video to see how I racked up 275 points in two minutes.

By being evil with the game, I was able to break the record. However, no matter how evil I get with it, I highly doubt I would be able to beat this guy. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean. Thanks to Ed Lau for the link.

      At least make a relevent comment to the post and don’t spam.

      That is one crazy basketball shooter John, I am sure you can find an evil way to surpass that ^_^

        Is that guy came from planet Crypton ? 😯

        1. I actually considered that he might’ve be an android or something…unbelievable! And we didn’t even get to see his face (maybe he had 2 pair of eyes like he had 2 pairs of hands).

    Second comment. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      John is your spam filter (askimet?) down?

    2. What the hell, was there a first comment-second comment contest that the rest of us weren’t aware of?!

  4. That is insane! Wonder why the NBA hasn’t picked him up?

    1. Jack Book says:

      I think why NBA Players can do that is just because NBA Players are the way too tall to bow down taking the balls and then shoot it away.

      that guy is not tall enough, that makes him easier to play the game.

      well.. i think πŸ˜‰

      he’s impressing anyway

  5. Josh Buckley says:

    Wow, that guy has superhuman powers! 😈

  6. Wow, I wish I were that good.. πŸ˜₯

  7. blogcrowds says:

    Pretty good, he missed 5 though.

    1. The scoreboard had to reset because he went over 999 — hahaha that’s just amazing!

  8. Casey says:

    Yeah John you are no match to him.
    But, look at something. He has three times as much basketballs as you normally get.

  9. Andrew P says:

    Oh my gosh! … and I thought I was fast.

  10. Krillz says:

    Still counts as cheating as he used balls from neighbouring machines 😈 πŸ˜‰

    But who the hell cares still impressing!

    1. In this case, “cheating” could just as well mean “resourcefulness.” 😈

  11. Tony Vu says:

    Jeez.. how many quarters does it take to get that good?

  12. Matthew says:

    haha that guy was nuts!

    hello shooting game NBA

  13. that was ridiculous! The counter had to reset back to 0!

  14. Brendan says:

    That really is amazing. Some of the talents people have are crazy.

  15. Rosinha says:

    Man this guy is just unbelievable!

    It’s kind of a M. Jordan wannabe…

    Funny anyway.

  16. Glen says:

    He has way too much spare time 😎

  17. Peter says:

    Wow – there’s always someone with a better system. He’s uber evil.

  18. shaun says:

    Haha thats not bad not NBA material lol. He prob wasted lots of money on that game getting good haha.

  19. Satenru says:

    Or he might have one of those machine at home so he can practice that all day.

    1. Could’ve practiced on a regular miniature sized back-door ring, too.

  20. Ed Lau says:

    Well to be fair, he’s shooting so rapidly that the machine is glitching. Notice that sometimes it’s counting one basket as two or more because the ball going through the basket is hitting the ball that went through just before it and is staying in line with the counting sensor.


  21. Looked like a robot to me. πŸ‘Ώ

  22. Wahlau.NET says:

    that is cheating…..normally it only have 3-4balls

    he have like 7-8 balls.

  23. Papa Rage says:

    The first thing you notice when you watch that video is that guy has way more balls than you.

  24. webd360 says:

    that is really crazy I wonder how good that guy is at real basketball… I know a way you can beat his score though, just rig the system (mod the counter so that it gives you like a 100 baskets for 1 real basket or something like that)

  25. Big deal! I used to be able to throw balls like that while being drunk, naked and breathing next to the south side of a north bound yak.

    Ahhh…. those were the days!

  26. KCLau says:

    that video is fake 😯 πŸ˜†

  27. zaki says:

    That is some piece of skill!!!
    He have been practicing since 1 year old!!! πŸ™‚ 😯

  28. Travis says:

    I can do what he can so much better. 😈

  29. ouchs says:

    he’s like Ryu shooting out fireballs

    1. …or Super Mario when he breathes/throws fire at those wretched little plants and evil turtles.

  30. Shaun Carter says:

    Man that is sick… his arms move like they aren’t attached to his body! Talk about being ambidextrous…

  31. SELaplana says:

    wonderful basketball shooter. he only got 3 misses on hundreds of shoots

  32. Evil John Chow can’t beat him. :mrgreen: You have to be more evil. 😈

  33. WTF… the guy was like a machine catapulting basketballs. He reminds me of those DDR geeks.

  34. Zac Johnson says:

    Haha, that was amazing.. as good with the left as he was with the right! 😎

  35. His was in the zone alright; his concentration was unbelievable!

  36. Super Mario here and I still think it’s pretty impressive but his top score was 006 πŸ˜†
    I’m sure i can beat his top score :mrgreen:

  37. That’s crazy, my friend thought it was a fake video.

  38. Jhon hebrink says:

    let’s Michael Jordan play in πŸ™„

  39. Now he just needs to monetize that video by getting it up on Metacafe and such. He’s missing out on some nice cash by having it on Google Video.
