During a four-day camp in Las Vegas over the Fourth of July weekend, the United States Olympic men’s basketball team participated in a photoshoot for the upcoming Summer Games. As part of the fun, the NBA social media team challenged the players to spin a basketball on their fingers, resulting in some unexpectedly humorous moments.

From the very start of the video, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, known for his incredible shooting and ball-handling skills, admitted he couldn’t spin a basketball on his finger. Later, Curry expressed his embarrassment over the fact, despite his legendary status in the sport.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James also struggled with the task. His attempts to spin the ball were short-lived, as it quickly fell off his finger, showing that even one of the game’s greatest players finds this trick challenging.

Tyrese Haliburton and Joel Embiid faced similar difficulties, earning some lighthearted teasing from teammate Kevin Durant, who jokingly called Embiid’s inability to spin the ball “sickening.”

While several players found the trick elusive, a few managed to impress. Boston Celtics guard Jrue Holiday spun the ball effortlessly on his finger, showcasing his dexterity. Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers also excelled, much to the surprise of some teammates who doubted his ability.

The video captures these moments of laughter and surprise, reminding fans that even top NBA stars have their quirks. It’s a fun glimpse into the lighter side of the game, showing that even the best can find joy and humor in the simplest of challenges.
