The Harlem Globetrotters have always been a remarkable bunch and Thunder Law just hammered that point with his latest inception into the Guinness Book of World Records.
As the current record holder of longest made shot at 109 feet 9 inches, Law went for the reverse shot of 82 feet and two inches and nailed it at the Phoenix Suns’ US Airways Center.
Apparently, holding the Guinness World Record for the longest basketball shot wasn’t enough for the Harlem Globetrotters’ Thunder Law.
In a video posted on YouTube on Wednesday, Law shattered the record for longest basketball shot… shooting backwards.
The incredible video shows Law, who you may recognize from his record 109-foot, 9-inch shot from the stands last year, making an 82-foot, 2-inch shot over his head.
Squatting from just inside the block/charge half-circle in the opposite key, Law squats, fired way into the air, then… splash.
Both videos were shot at the home of the Phoenix Suns and both were made in the presence of a Guinness Book of Records official.
