VIDEO: Harlem Globetrotters star makes shot off Oracle Arena roof

Harlem Globetrotters star Buckets Blakes nailed a new kind of shot at Oracle Arena on Wednesday — from the roof. The hoop was positioned more than 100 feet below and 100 feet away from the arena’s rooftop.

This is not Blakes’ first attempt at some tricky shots.

In San Antonio, he made a 583-foot basket (video), as well as shots on Alcatraz last year (video).

The Globetrotters are preparing for seven games in the Bay Area from Jan. 14 to Jan. 22, including four games at Oracle Arena in Oakland and three games at SAP Center in San Jose. A full schedule can be found here.bucket blakesHarlem GlobetrottersOracle Arena
