Hours after 50 Shades of Grey debuts, a different Christian Gray shatters backboard

Perhaps it was sheer coincidence, but some way, somehow, the cosmos intertwined to give us the immediate redemption of the name Christian Gray.

Yes, on Friday morning, just hours after the official release of the new 50 Shades of Grey movie, a Southern California forward named Christian Gray (note the subtle spelling adjustment in the last name) threw down a slam in a morning practice on Friday that completely tore down the backboard. As noted by MaxPreps, the movie 50 Shades of Grey debuted at midnight that same day.

There was no official note that the shattered backboard Gray left behind at his J.W. North High in Riverside caused any official delays. It did, however, necessitate one heck of a cleanup.
