Now that is how you shatter a backboard.
That is former University of Cincinatti star and current Harlem Globetrotter Darnell Wilks with the truly impressive dunk during a Globetrotters game in Ecuador. In the USA there are breakaway rims and major arenas have another backboard set up in back to be wheeled out and put in place. In Ecuador… that could have been the end of the show. Thanks for coming everybody.
