Milwaukee, Wisconsin (WTMJ / NBC News Channel) -- Proof that some reporters not only have broadcast skills, but they also have game.

A reporter for NBC's Milwaukee affiliate WTMJ was doing a live interview with the Harlem Globetrotters Tuesday morning to promote their December 31st event.

Then he did the unthinkable -- he attempted a no-look, backwards, half-court shot with the microphone in one hand and sunk it.

The anchors and Harlem Globetrotter went crazy as he hit nothing but net.

To cap it off, he did a mic drop and walked off the court.

Good luck following that report with the next story...
