VIDEO: Oregon State Basketball Player Shatters Goal, Bleeds All The Way To ER

Amateur ballers: now you know why the YMCA tells you not to dunk on their goals. Oregon St. Beavers guard Roberto Nelson was advised against dunking during a game against a local Macedonian team while on a Beavers Without Borders service trip, but just couldn't help himself.

The result was 20 facial stitches, though it also means Nelson gets to cross off a "bucket list item," as his teammate Kevin McShane called the achievement. Here's the video of the demolition and resulting not-safe-for-the-squeamish trip to the emergency room:

 

 

Play the video back from the beginning and you'll see a bandaged-up Nelson debriefing his videographer, saying the rim broke while he was still on the way up. Though the bloody part wasn't ideal, now at least the whole world knows of Nelson's accomplishment. Have you ever seen video of a broken backboard escaping Skopje, Macedonia unless there's blood involved? Exactly.
