Raiders punter Marquette King is as well known for his celebratory dances and offbeat social media game as he is for his booming punts. But, it was King’s superior punting skill that earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl in Orlando this year.
Today, he posted a video to his Twitter account of his precision kicking by draining a punt into a basketball hoop that was attached to the field goal post from 30-yards out.
Surprisingly, he didn’t break out the trademark pony ride dance after connecting on the deep three.
What the hell is going on down at the Pro Bowl? Dodgeball? Drones dropping footballs? Now this? It looks more like a massive kid’s birthday party than an NFL event.

Yesterday, King also posted a video where he caught one of his own punts and finished it up with a nasty 360. This video was fake, but well produced.
He may become the first player to make an NBA All-Star team based on his Pro Bowl practices. Hey, you never know what will happen with the player vote.
