A 21-Year-Old Shaquille O'Neal Breaking The Backboard Is Just Insane

A 21-Year-Old Shaquille O'Neal Breaking The Backboard Is Just Insane

In the early 1990s, Shaquille O'Neal broke backboards for fun in the NBA. He didn't just smash the glass but also destroyed the structure holding up the backboard.

O'Neal was a specimen at a young age - standing at 7-foot-1, and he burst onto the scene in his rookie season with Orlando Magic.

In 1993, Shaq made a name himself for shattering backboards. He famously slam dunked the ball so hard, he broke the backboard.

He walked away from the scene with the backboard hanging on the court having completely destroyed the frame.

Let's be honest, the backboard didn't stand a chance.

O'Neal will go down as one of the most decorated players in NBA history. He bagged four NBA titles during his illustrious career as well as three Finals MVPs, eight NBA First Team nods and 15 All-Star selections.

He was also the league's Rookie of the Year in 1993 and went on to win two scoring titles in 1995 and 2000.

He may be retired now, but 'Shaq' has etched himself firmly into NBA folklore.
