Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament is holding a basketball trick shot competition. Here’s how you can enter.

Jeff Ament has been a big basketball guy all his life. Outside of Pearl Jam, it’s his major obsession.

Jeff’s new album, Heaven/Hell is out and to help plug that, he’s going to give away a customized basketball signed by him as well as some other merch.

All you have to do is share a video on Twitter or Instagram of your best basketball trick shot. Tag it #AmentTrickShot. And you don’t even have to own a basketball. From the website:

We know that not everyone has access to a hoop and ball, so be creative. You can use a ping pong ball and a solo cup, a piece of paper and a trash can…the sky’s the limit.

You have until June 25 at 11:59 pm ET to get it done.
