Early Friday morning during practice for the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, also known as the Rookie/Sophomore game, Philadelphia 76ers guard, Evan Turner, set a new Guinness World Record for 'most shots made from behind the backboard in a minute' with 14.
Below is a video of what appears to be the tail-end of Turner's record-setting shots, via NBA's Twitter.
And yes, according to the Sixers Director of Public Relations, Michael Preston, the record has indeed been verified. Below is a picture from Preston's Twitter of Evan holding his new ... world record?
The second overall pick in the 2010 draft was left out of the Rookie/Sophomore game all together last season and was not good enough to be selected, but rather assigned to Charles Barkley's team, after Chuck and Shaq – the GMs of the two teams – held a draft including all of the eligible first and second year players.
Clearly, this record proves Evan is the best player in the NBA.
