In addition to being physically elite and the best basketball players in the world, many of the guys at the NBA level can make a number of trick shots that would seem impossible to the rest of us.

Monta Ellis became the latest to showcase this talent, draining a backwards, one-handed, over-the-shoulder three from the corner while warming up for Saturday night’s contest against the Sixers.

We don’t know how often Ellis tries this particular shot, or at what percentage these attempts actually go down. But if it’s anywhere near the accuracy rate Stephen Curry shows with his pregame shots from the tunnel, that would obviously be extremely impressive.
