Want to break the world record for longest basketball shot? You're going to have to beat Harlem Globetrotter Corey "Thunder" Law's feat of 109 feet, 9 inches, which he made Thursday at U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix.

"I didn't know what to think at first, because I had never tried a shot from that distance before," Law said on the Globetrotters' official website. "It seemed nearly impossible."

The old record was 104 feet, 7 inches, which was set in February 2011, according to the Los Angeles Times.
