Muller's b-ball skills

Bayern star Thomas Muller demonstrates he's a dab hand on the basketball court.

Last Updated: 17/12/13 at 14:47

Starring alongside FC Bayern Munich Basketball giants Lucca Staiger, Deon Thompson and Bryce Taylor, footballers Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller, Dante and Rafinha competed in a series of basketball-meets-football challenges... and more than held their own!

It didn't start well though as both Dante and Rafinha failed with slam dunk attempts, even though the latter received a helping boost from Staiger. The basketball players then showed off their own devastating court skills, with Muller being left for dead by Thompson who then landed a huge dunk in the 3v3 challenge.

Muller made amends by finding 'nothing but net' in the Alley-Oop challenge. After a nice lay up from Martinez, the German international displayed his trademark aerial ability, using his head instead of hands to find the basket.

However, the real surprise of the video came in the slam dunk challenge. After a daunting demonstration from the FC Bayern b-ballers, the footballers revealed a secret weapon in the form of defensive midfielder Javi Martinez. The combative Spaniard had already impressed in the 3v3, with a superb jump shot when he completed a slick team move with a stunning dunk.

Having earned the applause of his teammates with his hand skills, the ex-Bilbao man then closed the show in style. After some tidy keep-ups from Rafinha, Martinez landed an exquisite backheeled shot from just inside the three point line before being mobbed by his celebrating teammates.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
