Corey “Thunder” Law was so far downtown when he made this shot that he could’ve hailed a cab. And he wasn’t even looking.
The Harlem Globetrotters star set his second world record in a Youtube video posted on Wednesday for the longest-ever backwards basketball shot.
The clip[, shot at the Phoenix Suns’ arena, shows Law standing a few feet inside the opposite baseline with his back to the rim. He then bends his knees, let’s fly, and … nothing but net.
Law, who also holds the longest-ever shot record for his 109-foot, 9-inch floater from the stands last year, shot his backwards attempt from 82 feet, 2 inches away.
