Globetrotter sets Guinness-approved record for world’s longest shot (VIDEO)

Nov 15, 2013, 3:16 PM EST

Yes, we’ve shown trick shots before where guys have thrown the ball down hundreds of feet and set a distance record, but they are aided by gravity. What about hitting a long shot while at ground level?

Well, here you go.

That is Corey “Thunder” Law of the Harlem Globetrotters, making a shot from 109 feet, 9 inches, at the U.S. Airways Center (home to your Phoenix Suns). The fine folks from Guinness — the World Records book, although I enjoy their other main product as well — were on hand to make it official.

Heck of a shot, although you’d swear Stephen Curry beats that twice a game.

Hat tip to Dan Devine at Ball Don’t Lie.

    Unfortunately he may have been slightly out of bounds.

    The reigning Harlem Globetrotter in the NBA….kobe bryant will undoubtedly try that trick shot in his first game back.

    The NBA was kobe’s second choice. kobe truly wanted to play for the Globetrotters but he didn’t have a full repertoire of trick shots.

    But he has had 17 years to practice his Globetrotter audition mix-tape and they should allow him to join after he retires.

    That’s insane! I wonder how many tries it took though.
