Holy crap, this Barcelona player kicked a soccer ball into a basketball hoop from like 35 yards out


This is Martin Montoya. He's a defender and he doesn't even start for Barca. That is a soccer ball, and a basketball hoop, and easily 35 yards between them -- at least the length of a basketball court.

If Montoya, say, nailed a crossbar from that distance, that would be really cool. But scoring on a basket requires not only the distance and accuracy, but the spin necessary to curve downward through the net. Perfect swish, too. No bank needed.

I'm curious how many tries this took, because that is NUTS.
