Brandon Knight was the victim of one of the dunks of the year on Sunday, when he was in the unfortunate position of trying to break up an alley-oop dunk by DeAndre Jordan. The result was about what you would expect when a 6-foot-3 point guard tries to get in the way of a 6-foot-11, freaky athletic center with a reputation as one of the top dunkers in the NBA.
It was not pretty.
Knight did not run and hide from the situation, though. The second-year guard out of Kentucky even mocked himself on Twitter, jokingly placing the blame on the Pistons’ scouting department.[tweet https://twitter.com/BrandonKnight07/status/311001874239221760 align=’center’]
The Clippers are known as one of the best lob-throwing teams around, of course, which is something Knight was obviously aware of. He probably is not laughing now, after suffering a severe ankle sprain on Monday, but at least he seems to be keeping his chin up.
