Basketball World Records

Basketball world records are where players dribble, shoot, spin and dunk their way to glory, often with an added element of difficulty. (Try juggling three basketballs while balancing a fourth on your forehead and you'll get the idea.) These records don't all require varsity-level experience, though - for a less challenging task, try beating the record for Most Images of Charles Barkley on a Cookie or Most Three-Pointers Missed By Five People In One Minute.
