I Bet This Minecraft Basketball Team Plays Better Than the LA Lakers

A team of Minecraft players (known as the Farlanders) figured out a way of making a working basketball court. I know that Minecraft maps have become increasingly convoluted, but I think that recreating a sport is as impressive as recreating a cathedral or a city from Final Fantasy VII.

The video itself explains some of the workarounds that were necessary to make this minigame playable, but the most striking thing about the game is that it features complex elements such as fouling, blocking and even a scoring system. Still, my favorite part about it is that when a team wins, they are transported to a podium and fireworks are released.
