WATCH: Harlem Globetrotter William 'Bull' Bullard nearly crushed by backboard after dunk

The Harlem Globetrotters have been providing good, clean family fun since 1927, but one player narrowly escaped tragedy during a recent game in Honduras.

The 6-foot-4, 217-pound William "Bull" Bullard finished off an alley-oop by hanging onto the rim with his feet on the backboard when the stanchion gave way and nearly crushed Bullard.

The video is a bit scary, but at the end of the video Bullard makes an appearance and waves to the fans sporting a bandage over his eye. Check it out.
