Harlem Globetrotter

Crushes Record for Longest Shot

'I Make it Rain from 109 Feet'

Harlem Globetrotter
rookie Corey “Thunder" Law just broke the world record for longest basketball shot in history … draining a RIDICULOUS bucket from wayyy off the other side of the court.

It all went down at US Airways Center in Phoenix today … Thunder SWOOSHED a heave from 109 ft. 9 in. like it was nothing … and a rep from Guinness was there to make it official.

1114-harlem-globetrotter-world-recordLaw smashed the old record – 104 ft. 7 in. – set almost three years ago by Elan Buller outside the Campbell Hall Elementary School in North Hollywood, where he works as a teacher.

We spoke to Buller ... who tells TMZ, he's 100% confident he'll reclaim the record ... and says he purposefully left room on his shot, knowing one day the record would be broken.

Buller -- a former basketball player at Pepperdine -- says his students persuaded him to attempt the original shot ... and he has NO DOUBT he can break it again ... if his students ask him to.
