Photo via BallIsLife.com Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons is becoming more and more well-known, but for all the reasons.  Last month, during the Rookie vs Sophomore All-Star game, Kyrie Irving hit Knight with the deadly crossover, breaking both of his ankles.  And last night against Lob City, the one-two of Chris Paul and Deandre Jordan, absolutely DESTROYED Knight with a ferocious alley-oop. Watch. What we have here is social media gold. One of those videos that you have to watch on repeat at least five times, just to make sure you soak up every moment, and then run to twitter to discuss with everyone else.  From the alley-oop pass to the kids going HAM on the sidelines to Jordan’s gas face.  Nothing goes unnoticed. Here are a few of the best tweets from the sports world, including a couple of “Dunk of the Year” nominations: Well boys and girls that is what you call “the dunk of the year” by @deandrejordan Best dunk I’ve ever seen in person. #turnup — Blake Griffin (@blakegriffin32) March 11, 2013   Not my young fella b knight. Wow Dre that’s how u doin folks now lol — Mario Chalmers (@mchalmers15) March 11, 2013   DeAndre Jordan!!!! Dayyyuummmm!! Dunk of the year #littletikeshoop — LeBron James (@KingJames) March 11, 2013   OMG that Dunk was CRAZY. Wow!!! Dunk of the year. — BRANDON JENNINGS (@justryod3) March 11, 2013   Oh my goodness… Just saw @deandrejordan dunk I don’t know what to say…speechless man oh man, dunk of the year there’s no topping that — Jeff Green (@unclejeffgreen) March 11, 2013   The best part of that DeAndre Jordan dunk is that he made the free throw. Okay maybe that was the second-best part. — Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) March 11, 2013   But the tweet of the night was from Knight himself. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying…lol: It wasn’t in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol — Brandon E Knight (@BrandonKnight07) March 11, 2013   Thank goodness Knight has a sense of humor because it’ll help him cope with these unforgettable memes: Photo via gamedayr.com   Photo via @FunnyPics                                 Photo via @JoshChacko                                                         I love the internet. -@sdotrenee
