We're excited to watch Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala compete in their respective events down at All-Star weekend in Orlando. While both players have their flaws on the court, they're still very much a likable pair off of it.

So it made us happy this morning to see that Evan had already made his mark felt on the weekend by setting a Guinness World Record for shots made from behind a backboard in 60 seconds.

He drained 14. Perhaps Doug Collins should draw up a play to incorporate this skill into the Sixers' repertoire.

We'll have more on the Sixers at All-Star weekend over the next few days.

@thekidet just set a Guinness World Record for most shots made in a minute from behind the backboard with 14. It was legitimately verified.
