Watch a Basketball Hoop Crash on Top of a Player During a Harlem Globetrotters Game
We finally have an answer to that age-old question: Is it possible to ball too hard? Yes, yes it is, and we have the video to prove it. During a "game" in Honduras, Harlem Globetrotters player William "Bull" Bullard went up for the dunk and brought the hoop and the entire stanchion down with him. He not only shattered the backboard, but the shrieking crowd watched the rim land square on his head as he fell backward. The man could have died, but shortly thereafter Bullard returned to the court with a bandage over his eye.
The Harlem Globetrotters are about to embark on a North American tour in early 2014, and Bullard is scheduled to play. See the video below to understand just how lucky he is.
