Thunder Law is an eccentric and fun personality from right here in Chesapeake. Now a part of one of the most well-known basketball teams in the world, the Harlem Globetrotters.
The Deep Creek grad tells us about his world-record setting hoop shots and how the Harlem Globetrotters have evolved over the years to keep fans of all ages coming back for more. He also talks about his favorite Hampton Roads elementary school teachers and what you can expect when you come out to see their show.
About Thunder Law:
Harlem Globetrotter Thunder Law is living a dream as a member of the world’s most famous team. “Growing up, I always wanted to see the Globetrotters in person but never got the chance,” says Thunder. “Now, I’m a part of the organization … words can’t explain how great it feels.”
In 2014, Thunder set a Guinness World Records record for the farthest basketball shot made backwards at 82 feet 2 inches.
Thunder was a standout player at High Point University (N.C.), where he led the Panthers in field goal percentage as a senior and was third on the team in rebounding and blocks. Sporting a 44-inch vertical leap – he could already dunk when he was in the sixth grade – the muscular Law finished his career second on High Point’s all-time rebounding list
