December 4 was the third annual World Trick Shot Day, so you know the Harlem Globetrotters had to get involved.

World Trick Shot Day was created by the Globetrotters in order to give fans around the world a chance to celebrate what they can do with a basketball, a hoop and a lot of creativity.

The day, the first Tuesday in December, is even recognized by the Registrar at the National Day Calendar and became a thing in 2016.

So, to mark the occasion, Globetrotter Hammer Harrison went big. Actually, he went to new heights to pull of a trick shot. In fact, it was a world record. Harrison successfully pulled off the World’s Highest Slam Dunk which measured 855 feet at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas.

The day was created to pay homage to the fun and entertainment factors of a trick shot, but it was also created to invite and engage with fans from every corner of the globe to get in on the act as well. Fans were encouraged to post their attempts at one of a kind moves on social media with the hashtag #WorldTrickShotDay. Some lucky fans that did were rewarded by the Globetrotters with tickets to their 2019 Fan Powered World Tour.

Over their 93-year history, the trick shot has been a staple of their routine, beginning with the likes of Goose Tatum, Meadowlark Lemon and Curly Neal, all the way up to the current crop of Globetrotter stars. The team now holds more than 20 Guinness World Records. Just a few weeks ago they set three new records, which you can read about by clicking here.

The legendary Harlem Globetrotters are currently on their 93rd year of touring with the 2019 Fan Powered World Tour, where they will play in more than 250 markets across North America, as well as 30 countries across the world.

If you have never been to a Globetrotters event, I encourage you to go. No matter if you are young or young at heart, you will have a blast and walk away with a smile on your face. That is unless you are cheering for the Washington Generals, then you might be disappointed.

Mark your calendar for the first Tuesday in December 2019 and get ready to share your trick shot.
