Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight has been straight up owning the lowlight reels this year. When the 2012-2013 NBA season comes to a close, the 21-year-old could very well see himself as a repeat offender on lists of the most humiliating plays of the season. As you can see, Knight had himself a wide open layup late in the fourth quarter of his team’s loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. As if missing a layup with absolutely no one around isn’t horrible enough, Detroit happened to be trailing by three points with just over two minutes remaining in the game. They went on to lose by five. Ouch. Last month, Knight was dunked on by DeAndre Jordan harder than we have seen anyone get thrown down on all year. There was little the 6-foot-3 guard could do to defend the dunk and he had a great sense of humor about it afterword, but I’m guessing he won’t find the blown layup quite as comical. That’s what we call a once-in-a-lifetime miss.
