Harlem Globetrotter Breaks Record For Longest Shot; Season Looks Bleak For Washington Generals [Video]
Harlem Globetrotters Rookie Thunder Law (was that one of the American Gladiators?) broke the world record for the longest basketball shot yesterday. The former record, a paltry 104 feet 7 inches was shattered by Thunder’s impressive 109 feet 9 inches shot at the Phoenix Suns’ US Airways Center in Phoenix in celebration of Guinness Worlds Records Day. If the Washington Generals were hoping for a repeat of their 1971 season, when they beat the Globetrotters one game, it’s probably not going to happen any time soon.
