See that little spec of a man beneath DeAndre Jordan? That’s Brandon Knight, the posterization victim of one of the greatest NBA dunks of the 2013 season.
Knight was in the wrong place at the wrong time last night as Jordan caught a pass from Chris Paul and slammed it home to internet shattering applause. The dunk was quickly dubbed the “best of the year” by sportscasters, basketball fans, and teammate Blake Griffin.

The internet quickly started tossing around jokes at Knight’s expense. The Detroit Piston guard’s Wikipedia page was even updated to read that he was killed by Jordan’s drunk.

Another user joked that Jordan was arrested for murdering Knight last night during the Clippers game.
BREAKING: #Clippers F DeAndre Jordan has a warrant out for arrest. He’s wanted for murdering Brandon Knight on his dunk. RIP Brandon Knight.

But Knight is taking it all in stride. He even found a new fall guy: The Clippers scouts.
It wasn’t in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol
