HARLEM GLOBETROTTER WILLIAM ‘Bill’ Bullard was blessed to come away with a cut about the eyebrow after a slam dunk brought the backboard down on top of him.

During a recent exhibition game in Honduras, Bullard holds onto the rim after scoring before the structure comes crashing down — with the backboard glass shattering upon impact.

Luckily, he wasn’t seriously injured.
