Harlem Globetrotters player Thunder is shattering world records practically every time he steps on a court. He’s already the world record holder for longest basketball shot — a record he set a year ago. For his latest marvel, Thunder set out to break the world record for longest backwards basketball shot.

The final measurement on Thunder’s shot —which was all net— was 82 feet and two inches, besting the previous world record of 72 feet and two inches. This dude could definitely start for the Los Angeles Lakers.
