Marquette King nearly beats Harlem Globetrotter at his own game

The talents of Raiders punter Marquette King really know no bounds.

A year after he set the internet on fire by punting a football through a basketball hoop from about 60 feet away at the Pro Bowl, King, using more conventional talents on the basketball court, nearly beat Zeus McClurkin of the Harlem Globetrotters in a game of H-O-R-S-E recently at Oracle Arena.

King, naturally, used his punting talents to kick another football through a hoop, this time from just behind the three-point line. He then made a shot from the stands, throwing a football through the hoop from about 10 rows. McClurkin was unable to do either.

Still, McClurkin’s trick-shot ability proved to be too much, and he eventually won the friendly game — prevailing by just one letter — by bouncing a ball through his legs and off the backboard before scoring the basket.

The Globetrotters are at SAP Center on Jan. 19 and 21, and are at Oracle Arena on Jan. 20.
