Jimmy Kimmel Shatters a Basketball BackboardIt is the dream of every red-blooded male to smash a basketball backboard in his lifetime. Or at least, that's the dream of Jimmy Kimmel -- and he counts as a red-blooded male, right?

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night,' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC), the host lives out his hoop dreams by shattering a plexiglass backboard. By doing this, he joins the ranks of such famed b-ball players as Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal. Awesome job, Jimmy Kimmel, way to go!

But sadly, Kimmel seems to have gotten a little help in his quest. For one thing, the basketball hoop looks like it's about five feet tall -- not the required ten feet. And not that we're doubting Jimmy's athletic prowess or anything, but the backboard breaks suspiciously easily ... almost as if it had been specially altered or something.

Oh well. It still counts ... right? Right?
