BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - If you heard the Guinness record for NBA 3-pointers made in one minute was recently broken, you'd probably think Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson were involved.

In reality, it was a 35-year-old man from Bedford Township who accomplished the feat.

The back of Anthony Miracola's house is basically a 10,000 square foot YMCA, highlighted by a 10-rim basketball court.

"I shoot up to 500 baskets a day," Miracola said.

It's perfect for the former all-state basketball star, who now coaches children how to shoot.

"If you had this setup, you could set a world record," Miracola said.

Setting the world record for most NBA 3-pointers in a minute has been on his radar for a few years now.

"I was always intrigued by the Guinness Book of World Records," Miracola said. "I thought I could do some of that."

In Feburary, Miracola obliterated the record of 26 by making 31 shots.

Pulling that off requires some very specific skills. Miracola gave us a look at how he does it, with a little help from Local 4's Jason Colthorp.

Miracola is going to break another record Sunday: the most NBA 3-pointers made in three minutes. He's also the current Pop-A-Shot national champion.

In fact, he has 15 to 20 Guinness records he's hoping to break in the near future.
