Basketball technology has evolved to the point where we rarely get to see the awesome sight of a fiberglass backboard shattering into a million pieces after a vicious slam dunk. Anyone out there remember Darryl Dawkins or Mean Gene the Dunking Machine? (I think I am not only dating myself but coming out of the celebrity blogger closet as a sports fan.) But apparently basketball technology has not evolved to the point where it can withstand 300 lb. Keith “Tiny” Gallon of Oklahoma, who exploded the backboard on a failed alley-oop attempt against Gonzaga on New Year’s Eve!
Tiny Gallon? Now that’s a great big man name! (Better than Moses Malone or Eric Montross.) Thanks for sending 2009 out with a bang TG!
