Evan Turner Sets Guinness World Record

By Jason Priestas on February 25, 2012 at 6:00a

Last night in Orlando, Evan Turner set a Guinness world record by sinking 14 shots from behind the backboard in one minute.


So what if Minnesota's Ricky Rubio broke Turner's record 15 minutes later when he made 18 shots in the same event? Is there a photo of you with a Guinness World Record plaque?



Later in the evening, Turner would go on to record a near triple-double in the Rising Stars Challenge, leading his Team Chuck squad to a 146-133 win over Team Shaq with 16 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.

All in all, a pretty good night for ET.

Wish he started. Philly's in 1st in their div. so they won't make the change.

Even Turner? As a fellow Evan I must register my protest!

Not to nitpick but I'd have to say that Kyrie Irving was the one who led Team Chuck to victory.

I love how the link said, "slightly overshadowed" by Kyrie Irving.  34/8 with 100% of 3 pointers made is more than slightly overshadowed.  Kyrie Irving led that team, not Evan Turner.  And I say this out of love, I root for Evan every time he plays anyone who are not the Cavs.

This is an Ohio State site. Take your Duke-lovin to other places, pinkos!

Shooting basketballs from behind the hoop is a skill?

That thing standing next to ET gives me the creeps.
