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," 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.
