Start Your Day By Watching an Elephant Dunk a Basketball

By 09.03.14


I don’t have the exact figures in front of me, but it seems like the percentage of animals in captivity being taught how to play basketball has increased tenfold in the last five years. Surely movies like Air Bud, Ed and Space Jam are to blame for this phenomenon. Every trainer is out to make a quick buck with a children’s movie deal.

That being said, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more impressive basketball-playing display from the animal kingdom than the one put on by this elephant.

Sure, the big guy travels a little bit, but have you seen the stuff NBA stars are allowed to do these days? He’d fit right in.

Perhaps this is the impetus needed for The Elephant Basketball League. Lord knows we’ve suffered without one for far too long.

About Kyle Koster... Whenever you read a blog and think, "this is something that didn't need to be on the internet," you can bet I am responsible for it. I left a promising career in actual journalism to make GIFS and watch sports. No regrets. Oh yeah, I talked to Justin Bieber once and it was OK. Send tips/tell me I suck: or
