The Harlem Globetrotters are at it again. The famous team known throughout the world for trickshots, crazy plays and incredibly unique athletes have this week broken yet another Guinness World Record.
Thunder Law, a forward who linked up with the Globetrotters in their 2013 player draft, is the man of the hour for the franchise after breaking the record for the world's longest backwards basketball shot.
The Harlem star hit nothing but net whilst standing a staggering 82 feet 2 inches away from the basket. Check out the insane shot below. It literally couldn't have been any smoother.
Law's shot breaks the previous record by a full 10 feet and he clearly has a feel for the Phoenix Suns' US Airways Center with this achievement coming exactly a year after he broke another World record.
Back in 2013 the Globetrotter arrived in Phoenix and duly smashed the record for longest ever basketball shot with a phenomenal 109 ft 9 effort.

While the Globetrotters might struggle to compete in the NBA there is no doubt that their roster is jam-packed with incredible talent. Travelling around the world to compete in dunk contests and showcase events they can at least offer fans guaranteed entertainment unlike the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers right now.
I mean could Kobe or even LeBron pull of that shot?
