Watch the Globetrotter dunk that brought down basket, glass backboard

The Harlem Globetrotters are known worldwide for their crazy stunts on the basketball court.

One recent Globetrotter dunk definitely lived up to that reputation ... a little bit too much so.

William "Bull" Bullard barely avoided being seriously injured during a recent game against Honduras at the Nacional de Ingenieros Coliseum in Tegucigalpa. Bullard hung on to the rim after a dunk, sending the entire apparatus crashing to court.

“When I dunk, I put my feet on the backboard, put the ball through my legs and dunk it again, so that’s the motion I was going with,” he said.

Then continued: “By the time I realized that the rim was coming down, it was too late, and it crashed down on me.”

"When I dunk, I put my feet on the backboard, put the ball through my legs and dunk it again, so that's the motion I was going with," Bullard told the New York Daily News, via the Inquisitr. "By the time I realized that the rim was coming down, it was too late, and it crashed down on me."

Luckily, the metal rim missed Bullard's head (but not by much). He got a nasty cut above his eye and dislocated his shoulder but was able to return to the sideline later in the game.

"My main thing was to get up … get cleaned up, come back out and wave to [the crowd] and show them I was good," Bullard said.
