VIDEO: Watch The Basketball Player Shocking Thousands


Published at 1:07pm 10th June 2016.

A basketball player has been shocking the online world with his dunking abilities.

21 year old Patrick Dickert who attends Colby College in Maine has gone viral.

He posted a clip of him making a 15 feet dunk from the free throw line.

This is seriously impressive, considering he is 6 foot 2 and other players tower above him.

In the video Dickert shows how high the basketball hoop is compared to his height, takes a leap and in slow motion we watch as he dunks the ball effortlessly.

After posting the video on the sharing site Instagram, it has gained more than 245 thousand views.

Users are in complete shock with his skills…

User studbersky said: “This guy is goals.”

Another said: “Is this even possible?”

While another person said: “Bro you better be doing long jump during track.”
