Harlem Globetrotter William ‘Bull’ Bullard nearly crushed by backboard after dunk

- November 12th, 2013

We all know the fancy moves the Harlem Globetrotters are known for, but this one was definitely not drawn up before the game.

During an exhibition game in Honduras, Trotter forward William “Bull” Bullard attempted to go up for a slam dunk while holding on to the rim with his legs up on the backboard — the problem was, the whole board support came down with him, leaving Bullard with a nasty gash on his forehead, and shattered glass everywhere.

The good news, despite being laid out on the court for a while, he narrowly avoided a more serious injury. He even came back out to the court to give the fans in attendance a “thumbs up” after getting a bandage.

    Maybe players will stop acting like monkeys now and stop hanging on to the net. Better yet move the net higher. Remember the game was invented when the average player was about 5 ft 8 inches
