Sixers players take on the water bottle challenge

First, there was planking. Then came the mannequin challenge. Now, the internet has unveiled its latest viral sensation: the water bottle challenge.

The object is simple. You take a nearly full water bottle and flip it once, with the goal being to have the bottle land perfectly upright. It sounds easy, but even some of the best athletes in the country struggle to conquer the water bottle challenge.

That isn't the case for the Philadelphia 76ers, though.

Various members of the Sixers took their best attempts at the water bottle challenge before tipoff of their game Thursday night, and seemingly every player who tried the challenge succeeded.

As LeBron James and his teammates reminded us Wednesday night when they routed the New York Knicks, it's important to keep the fun alive in sports. James, Kyrie Irving and several other Cleveland Cavaliers players could be seen attempting the water bottle challenge on the sideline during the fourth quarter.

The Sixers proved they can dominate the water bottle challenge, but will they dominate in their game against the New Orleans Pelicans?
