And he's left handed? Give that feller the Inigo Montoya Award.

Knight is taking soooooooooo much sh*t on Twitter.

Things to note:

Knight actually kinda tries to defend it...but he's coming back down while Jordan is still going up.
Not a good month for Knight - this follows last month's getting sawed off at the ankles by Kyrie Irving.
To add injury to insult, the dunk comes down on Knight's head while he's on the ground.
And Jordan actually made the FT.

Jordan dunking on Knight?

*clicks link*

Yep.
A lot of good dunks from the Clipper vs Piston game last night.
 
2013-03-11 09:42:09 AM
Wow...eye level at the rim with the opposite hand?

And then he makes the FT for the "fundamentally sound" crowd.

Everyone is happy.

/Except for Knight

My favorite, via Jason Goff:

Brandon Knight apparently enrolled in the Steve Nash School of Teabagging this evening.  Looks like DeAndre Jordan is paying his way.#damn

As a UK fan, I first wretched at seeing Brandon Knight so humiliated on a large stage. On the other hand, had the asshole stuck around a couple more seasons, maybe we could have avoided the Ryan Harrow fiasco, so good, he had it coming.

It was hard to tell based on the video, but that is the best part if true.

Why should Knight be embarrased? Everyone in the NBA has been dunked on and it's usually because someone else on the team screwed up.
 
2013-03-11 10:32:11 AM
WOW.  Deandre Jordan made a free throw?

So a 6'11" athletic freak dunks over a 6'3" guy and we're impressed by the big guy?  I mean, it was a good dunk, but who on earth is surprised that DeAndre and dunk over Brandon?  Why would people give Brandon shiat on twitter?  Give the guys that turtle shiat, rather than the guys who try and make an effort.

/God damn Jordan has hops.
 
2013-03-11 10:42:37 AM
After getting crossed over by Irving and Dunked on by Jordan Knights should probably go to the NBDL until next Season.  Pistons aren't going to the playoffs, and ESPN is going to keep playing this for weeks on end.

If you remove Knight from the equation, the dunk is still a great dunk.  Knight was just in the wrong place at the wrong time

I think that it's contested does improve the quality of the dunk, but I just don't see how Knight should feel bad or why people think he should feel bad about this play.  Heck, I'd argue he was in the right place but his timing was a bit off (though, to be fair, I don't know that he could have done anything unless he beat DeAndre to the ball, anything else and it seems like DeAndre elevates out of Knight's range.)

But yeah, very pretty, even without the added difficulty.
 
2013-03-11 11:08:49 AM
It's not about Knight playing bad, it's just that the guy who gets dunked on always takes a ribbing.
 
2013-03-11 11:16:33 AM
If that was Michael Jordan, he would have helped Knight up.

Well, a ribbing is one thing, that's to be expected.

Well, if you're going to take a foul for a dunk, don't let them make it.  Kind of the golden rule of fouls

Only way he could have actually stopped it is if he'd committed a flagrant.

To be fair, they'd probably be ok with Griffin if he didn't flop like Divac.

Well, I think one feeds the other.  Griffin has a legitimate gripe(he gets flagrantly fouled pretty damn hard on a very regular basis despite the lesser foul calls) that he combats by flopping.  The NBA treats its guards and guardlike forwards like gods when it comes to protection and foul calls, but they've treated their bigs(marquee heavyweights sell more fights!) nowhere near as well since Shaq came around.
 
2013-03-11 01:49:35 PM
OK, he dunked on a 6'3" guard... good job?

Actually, you have that reversed.  Griffin was a flopper in college and has continued to be one in the NBA.  In addition, opposing big men started complaining about the superstar treatment that Griffin was receiving during his "rookie" year, so they starting making sure that they were getting their foul's worth.  It's much more similar to how the Wizards played the Cavs many years ago in the NBA playoffs.  The Wizards complained that LeBron would get a call every time he went into the lane, so a game or two into the series, they decided to make sure every whistle was really a foul.

non-NBA follower honest question:

what's the story with the ginger that they show about halfway through, looking like he's about to rush the court(yelling, behing held back etc), from the way he's acting it's like his boyfriend just took a pasting and he wants revenge.

This question cracks me up. That's Blake Griffen, last years (controversial) Dunk Contest winner. His reaction was (I'm guessing) "that dunk was so awesome I have an urge to yell at the dunksman. I also don't like being shown up, so I'm a little peeved but I respect the craft." Or something like that.

/ LOL "Ginger." He's half black, half white I believe.
