Gareth Bale is a man of many talents, chiefly soccer and being able to annoy Real Madrid fans for no valid reason. Now we can add basketball to the mix.
Wearing a Miami Heat jersey (hmm, MLS 2018 hint, much?) and a nerdy headband, the forward, a big NBA fan, sunk an impressive three shots from half-court. That’s a better shooting accuracy than he’s managed with his feet in recent months. It makes him three times better at basketball than other challenge participants, like Demba Ba and actual American Geoff Cameron.
Three out of five from half-court distance? Pretty sure this makes Bale a better basketball player than Shaq.
