Spin a basketball on your finger.

Since this is such a large group of talented people, someone must be able to do it.

I can do it for like 3-4 seconds but it's really wobbly and ends up falling off. Any tips?

Re: Spin a basketball on your finger.

a lot of it is just being able to start it central, open ur hand as wide as possible and spin it up so its axiss is perpendicular to the ground, then just pop ur middle finger in there, it should spin on there for at least 2 seconds without u having to move.

Then u just kinda lean it either side to spin it. bound to be a youtube video on it

I can do it for about 30 seconds.

One of my friends can keep it going for hours. Literally, he just keeps spinning the ball as it starts to slow down.

LOL. Youtube it. You can youtube anything.

I can only do it 2 or 3 seconds myself though.

Re: Spin a basketball on your finger.

Since I play basketball at work almost everyday, I've gotten to the point that I can get it going really good. However, I haven't been able to figure out how to keep it spinning.
