In China They Play Real-Life NBA Jam With Fire Balls (Video)

china nba jamLeave it to the Chinese to take some of the most dangerous acts that you would usually only see in video games or movies, and turn them into a traditional sport.

Climbing mountains of knives with your bare hands and feet, and jumping on shards of glass (once again with bare feet) are just a few of the traditional Yao Chinese sports.  Another one of these “traditional sports” involves the use of a flaming ball during what some have described as an extreme form of basketball.  I, on the other hand, would probably describe it as a real-life version of NBA Jam.  the only difference here is that you don’t need to make three consecutive baskets to be “on fire.”
