Did LeBron James break the backboard?
Beside this, did Michael Jordan break a backboard?
Michael Jordan was pretty good at dunking basketballs, and it's become the symbol that represents him long since his playing have ended. He once dunked so forcefully that he shattered a backboard during a Nike exhibition game in 1985 in Trieste, Italy.
Also Know, how much force does it take to break a backboard? (According to an episode of Sport Science, it took about 600 lbs of force to shatter a backboard constructed this way.)
Regarding this, can you break the backboard in NBA 2k18?
Shattering a backboard has only ever happened on an NBA court twice and they were both by Darryl Dawkins in the late 70s before the NBA switched to breakaway rims. Shaq destroyed a couple hoops in his day, but shattered no backboards in an NBA game.
When did Shaq break the rim?
