I don’t know who, what, where but I sorta know what and why.   During this high school game a kid pulls off a rookie Shaq Attack in Phoenix by making the entire basketball goal recoil to the ground.  When Shaq was interviewed his rookie year about this dunk and his backboard breaker in New Jersey he said the secret was (before the NBA introduced “Shaq proof” goals in 94) dunking hard on the side of the rim and hanging on it.    This high school kid discovered this backboards weakness when he made it recoil.

Let’s flashback to Shaq’s rookie season and see why the NBA had to create the “Shaq proof” systems.
