Milwaukee Bucks to attempt Guinness World RecordsPosted by Inside Hoops
Everybody has heard of the Guinness Book of World Records, a legendary book that contains the unprecedented achievements of people from around the globe. But few have ever made an attempt to add their name to the book’s famous pages and even fewer have actually succeeded in doing so. On Saturday night, the Bucks are giving all fans in attendance the chance to both witness history AND – even better – a guarantee that they will be a part of history by helping to set two Guinness records.
On Saturday, December 20, when they host the Los Angeles Clippers, the Bucks Game Operations Department will attempt to set nine separate Guinness World Records. An official judge from Guinness will be at the game to legitimize any and all record-setting attempts. The records that could be broken are:
- Longest time to spin a basketball on one finger, using one hand (current record: 37.46 seconds)
- Most basketball half-court shots in one minute (current record: 4)
- Highest forward flip trampoline slam dunk (current record: 10 feet, 9 inches)
- Most slam dunk bounce passes in 30 seconds (current record: 21)
- Furthest forward flip trampoline slam dunk (current record: 19 feet, 2 inches)
- Most basketball forward flip slam dunks in 30 seconds (current record: 17)
* Both records currently held by the Milwaukee Bucks Rim Rockers, set on February 14, 2008, at the NBA All-Star Jam Session in New Orleans, LA.
In addition to the six records listed above, the Bucks will also attempt to set three records that have never before been recorded. A member of the dunk team will attempt to complete the first-ever double front flip dunk on record during halftime. The final two record attempts will not be disclosed until Saturday night, but there are currently no official records on file for either one, meaning that any fan in attendance at Saturday’s game will be a part of the crowd that sets the original marks for two Guinness World Records.
