VIDEO Oklahoma’s Keith “Tiny” Gallon dunks and shatters backboard against Gonzaga

Tiny Gallon shatters the glass backboard New Year's Eve

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!
