DeAndre Jordan flat out destroys Brandon Knight (VIDEO)

Mar 10, 2013, 10:55 PM EST

DeAndre Jordan would like you to witness his entrant in the Dunk of the Year contest. It’s a good one.

First off, that is a fantastic alley-oop pass from Chris Paul, he anticipated this really well. Brandon Knight did not, and so he ends up the unwitting guy just getting destroyed.

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.
