Last month, a college student named Nicholas Corrales was taking part in an acrobatic dunk contest during halftime at a Phoenix Suns game... and it didn't go the way he planned.

Nicholas ran across the court, jumped on a trampoline, and launched into the air. But he jumped too far... and ended up going through the hoop HIMSELF.  FACE-FIRST.

It was so good, it looked like he did it on purpose.  But apparently he didn't.
