Thunder Law has been a record-breaking machine in his first year-plus with the Globetrotters. In that time, he has smashed two Guinness World Records® records: one for the longest basketball shot – connecting from 109 feet 9 inches, besting the old mark by 5 feet 2 inches; and for the farthest basketball shot made backwards – from 82 feet 2 inches, beating the old mark by exactly 10 feet. Thunder accomplished both feats at US Airways Center in Phoenix as part of the annual Guinness World Records Day.

Thunder competed in the 2013 College Slam Dunk Championship by beating out 15 other athletes to become the annual Dark Horse Dunker. Past Globetrotters draftees Jacob Tucker and James Justice followed similar paths to the competition.
The 6-3 native of Chesapeake, Va., led High Point University (N.C.) in field goal percentage as a senior and was third on the team in rebounding and blocks before being selected by the Globetrotters in their seventh annual player draft in June 2013. Sporting a 44-inch vertical leap, the muscular Law finished his career second on the Panthers’ career rebounding list.
