Two Videos, Two Amazing Basketball Shots

For fans of incredible feats:

Friday in Estonia, guard Armands Skele from BC Kalev/Kramo swished from about half-court with a no-look, back-to-the-basket, falling-out-of-bounds flip that sure looks like a one-in-a-million shot. The video is here.

And then there's Maryland teenager Machiah Thomas' trick shot. Watch him do a forward flip from downtown and launch the ball into the hoop. Be sure to see the slow motion replay, which comes around the 50-second mark in the video.

Two nice alternatives to the other basketball news of the day, about Metta World Peace's seven-game suspension.
