It “only” took Kyle 62 attempts but on the 62nd attempt he set the World Record For the Greatest Height From Which a Basketball is Shot with a 98m shot off the top of the Euromast in Rotterdam.
If you are into these type of records then here’s a few more ridiculous shots that are in the record books including Dwight Howard setting the world record for furthest made shot while sitting down (I was actually in attendance to witness this) and then Vince Carter breaking that record with an 86 foot shot.
