If you were hoping for more basketball action at the Nike Chicago pro-Am this past weekend, you can blame Meanstreet’s Aaron Nelson for causing the league to shut down early. The former All-American from Southern Indiana did his best Shaq impersonation by breaking the rim and taking a glass shower after a dunk.
Speaking of Shaq breaking backboards in the 90s and the city of Chicago, here’s Chris “Raise it Up” Morris shattering the glass against the Bulls in 1993.
Back to the Pro-Am, check out Iman Shumpert showing out last year in Chicago. Shump’s “Dream Team” featured Jordan Hamilton, Keifer Sykes and 2014 NCAA dunk champ Marcus Lewis.
