Not with the current backboards. He would have to pull down the whole damn basket (which I would not be surprised if he could). Look for him when he makes the olympic roster and those european backboards are much stiffer. Sabas did over in Europe durin his time so I would say sure for Oden.
LaMarcus for Heisman!!!

Roster:Lillard/Mathews/Batum*/LA/Lopez

*Its not pronounced with a !@#$ing s, he's french. It's Nico-la, not Nico-las.

Yeah probably possible in europe. I think MJ did one there even

Pretty sure that's some european place? Hope it showers like that as well when Oden does it.

Oden will stop world hunger, find a cure for cancer, single-handedly lower gas prices to $1 per gallon, then he will think about breaking a few backboards.

Oh yeah I do believe he could do it Shaq style (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5jMOK87N7A), I do wonder how long it takes to replace the damaged back boards. 8-)

I don't think you can break NBA backboards anymore. You'd have to weigh 500 pounds.

And it's probably best they started using safety glass. It looks like a good way to lose an eye, especially if you wind up falling on your back when the rim comes off.

I heard it took 2 hours to bring one up after Shaq tore it down

Nah, breaking a backboard is wasteful. Oden wouldn't do that.
