Carmelo Anthony came up short in attempt for high five record

Friday July 17th, 2015

Carmelo Anthony was one of the many athletes to appear at Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Sports Awards on Thursday night, where he attempted to set a new Guinness world record for most high fives completed in 30 seconds.

With the record currently at 130, Anthony had his work cut out for him, and to prove he was serious about the goal, he brought his personal high five trainer Michael Strahan with him.

Unfortunately, a clock malfunction led to the Knicks star stopping five seconds before the clock ran out, and he ended up just ten high-fives short of a new Guinness world record.

At least he avoided the slime.
