Thunder has been a record-breaking machine in his early career with the Globetrotters, currently owning four Guinness World Records titles. His most recent record was made in celebration of Guinness World Records Day on Nov. 9, 2017. On this day, Thunder earned the Guinness World Record title for the highest basketball shot made upwards at 50 feet 1 inch. Since becoming a Globetrotters’ star, he also set records for the farthest basketball shot made while sitting on the court at 58 feet 9.1 inches, the farthest basketball shot under-one-leg at 52 feet 5.1 inches and made the farthest basketball shot backward ever recorded by Guinness World Records 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.

He became a larger figure on the Globetrotters’ radar when he competed in the 2013 college slam dunk championship by beating out 15 other athletes to become the annual Dark Horse Dunker. He was selected by the Globetrotters in their seventh annual player draft in June 2013, beginning his journey to becoming a Globetrotter.
