There are all sorts of masters lurking in arcades around the world. We’ve seen quite a few in Japan, where taiko drum experts and claw game champions reign supreme. But if this video of a basketball free-thrower is anything to go by, Chinese game centers seem to have their own breed of skilled gamers. However, what makes the skills of the guy on the left, we’ll call him “Khaki Shorts,” all the more amazing is the fact that he’s making one-handed free throws with both his left and right hand four times faster than the other players.

We’ll let you get to the good stuff first. Check out the video in question here:

Seriously, impressive, eh?

We couldn’t help but chuckle at 0:34 when the guy on the right tries his hand at double handing the basketball…turns out it’s harder than Khaki Shorts makes it look.


But what really sealed the deal on Khaki Shorts’ rebel quotient was what happens at 0:49. As if it’s no big deal at all, Khaki Shorts starts banking the ball off the adjacent mini court and never misses those either.


And then, like the total badass he is, Khaki Shorts uses a handkerchief to wipe his face off all casual like, grabs his plastic bag off the top of the nearby arcade game, and walks off, leaving Red Shoes staring, open-mouthed.

So watch out the next time you’re in an arcade or game center. The next middle-aged Chinese man with a pot belly that you see just might be a free throw master.
