DeAndre Jordan would like you to witness his entrant in the Dunk of the Year contest. It’s a good one.
I was at the game, sitting on press row where cheering is verboten. And there were plenty of people, myself included, who had audible expletives come out when that dunk went down. Even in Lob City that is a top-flight highlight.
Pretty soon after “R.I.P Brandon Knight” was trending on twitter and becoming a meme, to the point Knight’s Wikipedia page was updated. Even Knight joked about it on twitter.
It wasn't in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol—
