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.
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

The best part of that DeAndre Jordan dunk is that he made the free throw. Okay maybe that was the second-best part.

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

Thank goodness Knight has a sense of humor because it’ll help him cope with these unforgettable memes:
