Darnell Wilks played college basketball at the University of Cincinnati, where he earned an invite to the NCAA dunk contest. After finishing at Cincy in 2011, Wilks was drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters. During a recent stop in Ecuador, Wilks destroyed a backboard. Now, if this happened in a major American stadium, they clean up the glass and wheel out another hoop. Wilks breaking this backboard looks like the equivalent to Benny busting the guts out of the baseball. Now, they can’t play no more.

Aldridge wasn’t a fan of the basketball part of playing with the Lakers.
