I’m not sure if this basketball prank will ever be topped. Rewind to 2009, and two guys from the website, Streeter and Amir were involved in a “prank war”.

Amir’s last prank on Streeter was particularly cruel, basically making Streeter’s girlfriend at the time believe he had proposed to her (in front of 20,000 people at the Yankees game), and so Streeter was looking for revenge.

Enter the blindfolded half court shot. Prize money: $500,00.

Neil,an ESPN writer, who was in on the prank, said he had to go to a college game for work and promised Amir if he came with him, he would rig it so he would get picked to take the half court shot at halftime.

Amir obliges, and all is left is for Streeter to set it up.
