The DeAndre Dunk

Late in my freshman season in college I was getting some rare playing time during a blowout loss at St. John’s when I found myself defending a two on one fast break.  As the three of us approached the basket, me back-pedaling the whole way, the ball was passed high over my head.  I committed the cardinal sin of trying to jump up to tip the pass.  Next thing I knew I was seeing stars, lying on my back, staring up at the rim — and the bottom of a pair of sneakers dangling over me.  I was alley-oop dunked on.  Hard.  Not [nearly] as hard as that one, but hard enough to knock me on my ass.  Drunk college kids were yelling at me.  It was embarrassing.

So, Brandon Knight, I guess I’ve “been there bro.”  (Just with no Twitter, YouTube, or even 1/1,000,000 of the amount of people watching.)

Knight used the opportunity to show his good sense of humor and humility:

(What a dunk.)

  1. Basically the same thing happened to me in a high school game, except it was on a follow dunk in a half-court set, not a 2-on-1. (I’m pretty sure you had a great view of it from the bench, though maybe you were on the court – I can’t remember.) Anyway, humility is an important part of life, and Brandon Knight seems to be handling it well for now. Kudos to him.
