WATCH: Saint Louis freshman Carte’Are Gordon destroys a backboard

I don’t care if this was only in practice. This is mesmerizing.

Well, it didn’t take too long for Saint Louis freshman forward Carte’Are Gordon to make his mark on the Atlantic 10.

The four-star recruit made quick work of a backboard in practice on Thursday. I am pro-backboard life and take no pleasure in reporting this, but see for yourself:

Breaking a backboard is an incredibly impressive demonstration of strength, but check out how clean of a break Gordon made. One moment, the backboard is there; the next, nearly the whole thing disappears.

We are all this guy.

Thankfully, Gordon was okay — I mean, backboards are made of glass, after all. But if Gordon can do this to an innocent backboard, then the rest of the Atlantic 10 is officially put on notice.
