Harlem Globetrotters player Corey “Thunder” Law already owned the Guinness world record for farthest basketball shot.
Why not try it backward?
Law achieved his second record Wednesday, standing near one basket at Phoenix’s US Airways Center and tossing the ball over his head behind him and across the length of the court, a looping arc that found its target more than 82 feet away.
Law’s shot, completed on the annual Guinness World Records Day, broke the old record by 10 feet.
The shot followed last year’s record-breaker, when Law stood in the stands and nailed a one-handed shot from nearly 110 feet away.
A rep with Guinness World Records was on hand Wednesday to oversee the record attempt.
“Congratulations Thunder, you are officially amazing,” the representative said, handing Law a verification plaque.
“This is an unbelievable experience,” Law said. “My first one was unbelievable, but this definitely tops it.”
