Mormon missionaries put on clinic in pick-up basketball game (Video)


Some Mormon Missionaries were making the rounds in a less than affluent part of town when they came upon a basketball court. They decided to break the ice with a little pick-up game on some unsuspecting foes.

This is the description attached to the video on the YouTube channel:

My cousin Cole, a missionary in Dallas Texas, has been dying to play some street ball and got the chance. After playing it cool asking to play because they are “Just some white boys”, they were allowed to play and tried to make it look like they weren’t that good. That is until they started to play. Turn up the volume and laugh hysterically. Cole proves that white boys can jump.

Their missionary efforts weren’t all for nothing. After putting on a show and stunning their opponents they baptized one of their opponents daughters.

It wasn’t quite the Kyrie Irving disguise video, these were some kids who just didn’t look like hoopers and were judged to quickly. They intentionally played down their abilities while convincing the unsuspecting gentleman to play them. Still fun to watch none the less.

The video’s owner, Jared Allen had this to say about his cousin:

He actually was on a State Champ basketball team where he can dunk a regulation size hoop. He has over a 40″ Vert. but doing this in his dress shoes is even better
