Chucking a ball into a basket from 583 feet away sounds impossible – but it’s not. Check this out…
Yeah, Buckets Blakes of the Harlem Globetrotters achieved the feat, completing the shot from 583 feet above the basket. Yeah, the distance was vertical, not horizontal.
Sort of cheating, but still very impressive.
He scaled the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio to complete the effort, which was a North American record – but not *quite* a world record, thanks to these pesky Australians.
Beat that, Buckets.
