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.

Should be titled: "Watch a basketball player who should know better, put his full weight on a hoop bolted to glass, fully aware that this will cause the glass to shatter - irreparably and expensively damaging the equipment provided by the game host and possibly stopping the game altogether - and risking injury doing it."
