Globetrotter dunk brings down basket in frightening incident (VIDEO)

Nov 12, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

The Harlem Globetrotters were really traveling the globe, putting on a show in Honduras, when the incident above occurred (put on the Web by the Globetrotters themselves).

After a few passes against the usually stellar defense they face, Globetrotter Bull Bullard goes up for the dunk and throws it down, then does a little pull-up on the rim….

And the whole basket — stantion and all — comes crashing down and almost on Bullard’s head. Bullard is reportedly okay although he sat out the rest of the game (which continued once the glass was cleaned up and a new basket was put in place). Still, frightening.

Hat tip to Dime Magazine.

    Good to see the Heat bandwagon is alive and well in Honduras….

    Cue whichever web video show picks this up first and adds a

    “Well I guess that was alley-oops!” voiceover.

    Unless its Daniel Tosh, wherein it will be much more racist.

      Wow, I was joking, but I’ve just watch 3 separate news stations lead with “check out this alley-oops”.

      I was hoping it would be corny and obvious enough to miss, but I guess the media just can’t resist an easy headline.

    I went to college with Bullard. Good to see he’s alright.
