Robin Lundberg: In quarantine, some people have some extra time on their hands, including this guy who put together a 70 step basketball shot. That was two months in the making. For more, I'm joined by our Jimmy Traina. Jimmy. I think this video is three minutes long. I mean, you kind of got to admire what this guy was able to accomplish.

Jimmy Traina: Yeah. If I'm being perfectly honest, when I first watch the video, I didn't check the time stamp on it. So after about a minute, I was kind of like, what the hell is this going to end? And it kept going and going and going. And in three minutes. Just a ball going and going and going, and this is what we do now in quarantine when we have nothing to do.

Robin Lundberg: It's kind of like that shot in Happy Gilmore, right?

Jimmy Traina:  It's a little more intricate. I mean, this guy. I don't know how a brain conceives this. 

Robin Lundberg: Oh, he's a genius, right? I mean, this is real. This man is a certified genius. 

Jimmy Traina: Yeah, exactly. I don't even know where you begin to come up with something like this.

Robin Lundberg: Ingenuity and maybe an engineering degree. Jimi, appreciate your time, as always. 

Jimmy Traina: Anytime.
