Okay, the twitter-verse and social networking world is buzzing over the DeAndre Jordan dunk over Brandon Knight. When I first saw the footage I immediately felt sorry for Brandon Knight, poor kid never had a chance. Is it me or did DeAndre Jordan remain suspended in the air for five additional seconds while Brandon Knight plummeted back down to earth? You have to give Brandon Knight some credit for attempting to block the dunk attempt, unfortunately he ended up flat on his back like a MMA fighter.
The L.A. Clippers bench reaction after the dunk was proof enough as to how thunderous the dunk was. In the video you can see several Clippers players run to the other end of the court as if DeAndre Jordan had just robbed and mugged Brandon Knight.
It wasn’t in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol

Again, alot of people are laughing at Brandon Knight’s expense but he deserves a lot of credit for trying what 90 percent of the players in the NBA are too afraid to try (block a dunk). ESPN and other sites have deemed this the dunk of the year and I think Jordan will hold that title for a while, because I doubt many players are looking forward to getting posterized. Is this the dunk of the year?
Grade: E (for effort)
