The water bottle challenge has taken over the world ever since a kid in a high school talent competition blew the doors off auditorium by flipping a half-filled water bottle in the air and landing it perfectly on a table.

Now the world's biggest stars are in on the act, including LeBron James.

But LeBron's water bottle challenge left much to be desired.

At least LeBron tried it in the middle of a big game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
