Poor Brandon Knight. When he’s not playing the role of punching bag in other players’ highlight reels, the equally cruel blooper reel is just waiting to swoop in. Thanks to two posters — one of the ankle-breaking variety, one of the Lob City variety — which have garnered countless millions of YouTube views, the Detroit Pistons guard was already having a nightmarish sophomore season. On Wednesday night, things only got worse. Late in the Pistons’ 98-93 loss to the Boston Celtics, Knight broke free for an uncontested layup that would have pulled the Pistons within one point, and made the home team sweat a little over their not-yet-locked-up 7-seed in the Eastern Conference standings. Alas, he hit the highlight (lowlight?) reel trifecta by virtue of botching the gimme, which leads to the obvious question: do we really have to play these last seven games? Or, at the very least, does Brandon Knight have to play these last seven games? [YouTube] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Brandon Knight blows the most embarrassing layup of the season (Video)

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...

Brandon Knight misses wide open layup at crucial moment against Celtics

Brandon Knight is having himself a rough second half-stretch. He got crossed by Kyrie Irving at the Risings Stars game and absolutely posterized by DeAndre Jordan in the beginning of March. Knight missed a crucial uncontested layup down three points against the Celtics on Wednesday. Although his Pistons aren’t at the bottom of the NBA standings (they lost by five to Boston),...

After being the face on the receiving end of the most epic dunk of the NBA season, thanks to DeAndre Jordan, then blowing an uncontested layup this week in a game, Knight now finds himself the butt of a funny Brittney Griner Instagram photo. After the world this week debated if Griner could play in the NBA after Dallas Mavericks owner...

Video: Brandon Knight misses wide open layup

Tweet Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight has had it rough over the last month or so. Remember in the rookie-sophomore game Kyrie Irving did this to him? Or when DeAndre Jordan immortalized Knight with this dunk? To top it off, Knight suffered a severely sprained ankle the very next game. Tough break, kid. Wednesday evening, [...]

Video: Brandon Knight blown layup encapsulates the Pistons season

This play by Brandon Knight of the epitomizes the Detroit Pistons. This is a team that has jumped out ahead in some many games, only to falter in the end. Just as Knight did here off this steal against the Celtics. Way ahead, and then… Trey Burke or Victor Oladipo can’t come soon enough H/T LBS

Comments from the Other Side - Pistons 4/3

It's always sad for me to see fans rooting for a loss in order to tank for a better draft choice.  I've never quite been able to get to the point where I want my team to lose, for any reason.   I can understand other fans not liking Tommy's Celtics homerism, but to wish harm on him is pretty classless.  The guy has 10 rings as both player and coach and has forgotten...

Jose Calderon accidentally heads towards wrong locker room at halftime

Former Toronto Raptors guard Jose Calderon let his old habits take over when the Detroit Pistons were at the Air Canada Center to play his former team.  Calderon was absent-mindedly walking to the locker room when it had to be pointed out to him that he was heading to the wrong locker room.  His old teammates got a good laugh out of it and Calderon knew he was destined for YouTube...

Breaking NBA Fan Narratives: One-On-One With A Detroit Pistons Fan

During the 1989-1990 NBA season, the Detroit Pistons would carry a 59-23 record as they would embark on an NBA Championship journey. They would sweep the Indiana Pacers in Round One, defeat the New York Knicks (4-1) in the semifinals, squeak past the Chicago Bulls (4-3) in the Eastern Conference Finals, and annihilated the Portland [...]The post Breaking NBA Fan Narratives: One-On...

Green Envy: What Pistons fans said (4/3/13)

There were two teams that the Celtics just couldn't beat before last night: New Orleans and Detroit. Luckily, the Celtics managed to get a much needed win against their supposed-to-be-tanking opponents last night, and the Pistons fans who had already had their fair share of disappointments added another one to the list... or did they? Well, frankly, it looks like they didn'...

The Pistons coming to town are a surprisingly unwelcome sight

Greg Monroe has been a beast vs Boston. Normally one might think that a visit from a team with a 25-50 record would be exactly what the Celtics need to help themselves get back on track.  But not the Pistons. The last time Boston beat Detroit was December 30th, 2011.  Not only that, but the games haven't even been close.  In four losses the C's have fallen by an average...

Celtics Survive Beating Pistons 98-93

The Celtics returned home to take on the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night at the TD Garden. With a win tonight and a 76er loss on the road the Celtics would clinch a playoff spot. The team did just that but they sure don't make things easy on themselves. Led by a huge night from Jeff Green, who finished with 34 points, the Celtics snuck by Detroit 98-93. The Pistons really...
