This May Be The World’s Longest Basketball Shot
I say may be, because there were no reps from the Guinness Book Of World’s Records on and to witness the event, so all we have is the video as evidence it really happened. It could be a fake, or it could be hours of trial and error before he makes the shot. The basketball was thrown from the top of the Vulcan monument in Burmingham, which is 134 feet above ground level. The ball was released from about 6 feet above the platform. The goal was 10 feet high and was placed about 10 feet below the base of the statue, meaning the height from hoop to shooter was 140 feet. The estimated length of the shot was about 150-180 feet.
If this isn’t the longest, I want to see video of the one that is!
