    That's true, Joel, but you're sort of missing the whole spirit of the record. A longer distance requires more precision and planning if bank shots aren't allowed, but if there's a narrow hallway that funnels the ball toward a doorway regardless of the number of deflections, it's a totally different feat. RecordSetter, does this mean that the previous record should be submitted under a different category with more specific rules?

    Great attempt, Joel, but you didn't chip the basketball directly through the door frame.
