[WATCH] Harlem Globetrotter sets new Guinness World Record with highest upwards shot

In the same week the Harlem Globetrotters introduced the 4-point shot to Klay Thompson at Warriors practice video, the world famous team took their skills to even higher heights by setting a new Guinness World Record title.

This is pretty epic! Watch as Harlem Globetrotter Thunder Law makes the highest upwards basketball shot, connecting from 50 feet and 1 inch outside of the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City. Yup, you read that right, 50 feet and 1 inch!!!! To make the shot possible, a basketball hoop was hung from a crane high in the air, as Law stood beneath it. The shot was made today for the 13th annual “Guinness World Records Day."
