The longest successful basketball shot measured 33.45 m (109 ft 9 in) by Thunder Law (USA) of the Harlem Globetrotters, at US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, on 11 November 2013.
The attempt was in celebration of Guinness World Records Day 2013. The record was attempted by three different Harlem Globetrotters players, who all shot for one hour, until "Thunder" drained his opportunity at history.
"I can't believe I broke a record on Guinness World Records Day," he said. "Awesome."
