Brandon Knight Crosses and Rises to Posterize Jonas Valanciunas (Video)

The Milwaukee Bucks’ Brandon Knight crosses over his defender, drives and gathers to take flight for the one-handed poster dunk on Jonas Valanciunas of the Toronto Raptors. Valanciunas has been a victim of a few poster dunks this season. He’s probably tired of viewing himself in highlight reels once every month. Knight finished the game with 15 points and four assists in the...

Knight starting to look like Milwaukee's point guard of the future

MILWAUKEE -- Laying on the ground at Madison Square Garden just two minutes into the season, Brandon Knight's first year with the Milwaukee Bucks was off to an inauspicious start. Little did he know just how much that hamstring injury would set him back. Even after he returned three games later, Knight wasn't himself. The hamstring wasn't right, and it was holding him...

Bucks newcomer Brandon Knight plans to let play do talking

MILWAUKEE -- At just 21 years old and 141 games into his NBA career, Brandon Knight was already labeled. He heard all of the talk, he knew his team's plans no longer involved him at point guard, and he quickly found out they didn't involve him at all.

Detroit Pistons didn’t win lottery, but should get quality at position

Brandon Knight whiffs on uncontested layup

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...

Top DeAndre Jordan- Brandon Knight dunk memes

If posters were still popular, Pistons Brandon Knight would absolutely be on one as a result of DeAndre Jordan’s massacre dunk. Some sports writers are getting pretty emotional about the jokes being lobbed – pun intended- Brandon’s way as a result of the baptism. They feel Brandon is being unfairly ridiculed for “doing his job” and being on defense. Clearly these guys...

Kyrie Irving breaks Brandon Knight's ankles

The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge has turned into a mostly ho-hum affair, due in most part to mixing rookies and sophomores as teammates — thus removing any incentive to play even half-heartedly. Friday was no different, as Team Chuck destroyed Team Shaq by a score of…well, that’s not important. What is important is that around the 5:30 mark of the second half, Kyrie Irving must...
