(Phoenix, AZ) The world famous Harlem Globetrotters began the day holding five official Guinness World Records® records. Yesterday alone they set seven, including a record for most basketball three pointers made by a pair in one minute – held by NBA superstars Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitzki – and the third world record set by Thunder Law in as many years.

The records were all set at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, home of the Phoenix Suns, in celebration of the 11th annual Guinness World Records Day.  

Globetrotters stars Ant Atkinson and Cheese Chisholm drained 19 three pointers between them in one minute – alternating between made shots – to smash the record of 15 by Durant and Nowitzki.

Thunder Law added the longest basketball shot blindfolded – 69 feet 6 inches – to his other Guinness World Records® records for the longest basketball shot (109 feet 9 inches) and the farthest basketball shot made backwards (82 feet 2 inches).


“Being a part of this record-setting day with all of my teammates was incredible,” said Ant. “The Globetrotters have been setting the standard for amazing basketball feats for 90 years, and we are ready to show our wonderful fans more remarkable basketball and family entertainment throughout our 2016 World Tour.”
