Basketball rims are way stronger these days, which is why you never see one getting destroyed.
However, the rims over at the Rising Stars Challenge in the 2020 NBA All-Star Games in Chicago were clearly not ready for rookie Zion Williamson.
New Orlean's no. 1 pick, who is a freak of nature, made a little adjustment to one of the rims after a made dunk.
Here are visuals.

Good thing halftime was coming up.
Zion's team USA beat the World in the game, 151-131. Williamson scored 14 points.
