Oh me, oh my.

When other NBA players, especially superstars, give respect to you, that says something.
I knew someone would say this, just like I knew people would criticize some of Griffin’s dunks last year because he didn’t touch the rim. Bottom line: dunks are about aesthetics. Sure, you can say that this didn’t impress you; fine. But it amazed most people, and that’s what makes it a great dunk.
Are you trying to say he didn’t dunk it?
*Stephon Marbury face*
You foolish mortal.i don’t care about his opinion… I have to agree with him because he plays basketball really well? I don’t state my opinion so people can agree with me and i doubt he does either.
No,im saying it’s NOT the best dunk of the year.
Looked like Brandon Knight’s back got destroyed in the process.
Than which one is?
I think he did that out of excitement.
OUCH…Has anyone in the NBA been as embarrased as Knight so far this season? Kyrie in the Rookie/Soph game and now this. I’m sure Brandon cannot wait until this season is over.
I think this dunk wouldn’t have been so bad had Knight not laid down on the floor for a solid 30 seconds looking like he just died.
That Kyrie shake was just as embarrassing, with the only difference being that it came during ASW.
Nasty as nose hair.
He’s just been in the wrong place at the wrong time too many times this season.
Then what is?
ahahahahahaha —–> https://i.minus.com/ibfGACq50lur2k.gif
Knights hand gets to the top of the square so it was a good attempt to stop it. Its just that DJ has rare athleticism for his height so this makes it that much more spectacular. DJ would’ve dunked on a 7 footer the same way. The only difference being that a bigger player would be able to take the contact better and not fall down.
This is something NBA on TNT would do. Just too funny man lol
i like the Demar Derozan on Mozgav
i. Commendable of Knight to challenge the inevitable.
ii. The reactions were better than the dunk; dunking on a dude a foot shorter than you doesn’t short-list the bucket for anything.
iii. OH ME, OH MY.
They aren’t as biased as SAS’ or Miami’s announcers. Both LA teams have fair local crews. OKC’s are all right, too.
Having said that, Boston’s are the worst, specifically T.H. Heinsohn is less than announcer.
More people care about his opinion than yours. That’s the point.
Utah is the worst. It’s not even close.
Boston’s announcers are horrible. Utah announcers atleast begrudgingly acknowledge fouls by their players. Boston announcers act like they’ve witnessed a tragedy whenever a clear foul is called on their player. Might be my Laker bias though.
Clips announcers tend to go “homer” at times. This is one of those moments. The dunk was good. But when you consider that the guy dunking had a starting run up, has a feet over the defender, who is moving laterally, in height and vert, it doesn’t even make it close to being the best dunk this season.
Else, I might be going “hater” on the Clips. Can’t deny that……..
That makes the individual’s opinion more significant. That doesn’t make it right.
It’s a good dunk. But it ain’t even close to being one of the best dunks ever that guys/gals on Twitter are proclaiming.
Apparently some of you guys aren’t impressed? I get it, you watch an inordinate amount of Mexican wrestling and see this stuff all the time…but this is basketball, it also happens to be pure unadulterated filth through and through. I can understand that some folks are more impressed when the Davids hammer home on the Goliath’s, nonetheless dude looked like the recipient of a pile driver from the top rope.
Crazy How Brandon Knight was the #1 High School player in his class.. A Wise man once said.. *DAMMM HOMIE IN HIGH SCHOOL YOU WAS THE MAN HOMIE WTF HAPPENED TO YOU!!!*
Before everyone kills me, I meant make it close to being the best dunk of all time, which some guys/gals are proclaiming on Twitter. It was a typo.
It has a strong case to be the best dunk this season. However, I could understand if other top dunks were preferred. Top 3 dunk of the season IMO.
i just don’t think you’ve seen enough Utah games. http://breakingbeasley.tk/post/announcer-rankings-bonanza-complete/ <– read that lol
I dare not tread that path.
but you telling me that is irrelevant.
Yeah, but no. As I guy who has spent his entire basketball career above the rim, with too many victims to count, of all shapes, sizes, colors and creeds, I get where your coming from and even agree to an extent. However a nice dunk is just that, nice, and if someone happens to be in the vicinity, all the better. But if you body slam a defender in the process, well we’re still moving up the niceness scale. Throw in a few thousand fans and national TV coverage and a think the man has a right to feel alright. Maybe comments like “ignorance of society” ought to be reserved for ish like the US gun debate rather than people thinking that this dunk was pretty ill?
So my bias it is. The thing is, Tom’s voice kills me. Top 2 are the same as my personal rankings. Had the Lakers at 3 though. Didn’t see Minny, Phx, Washington home games for pretty obvious reasons.
On a side note, how the hell do those guys like Bill Walton’s voice in the broadcast booth?! Am I in the minority here? He’s quite intelligent but his voice makes me so damn drowsy and for some odd reason, irritating with the always positive vibe……
“Jordan made a spectacular play. No one will soon forget it. So congratulations and all. Jordan has a $43 million contract and yet still doesn’t have one offensive move, an ability to score outside the paint. Yes, he can leap, dunk on little guys. And somehow that makes him an achiever in the sport now. After this, perhaps even a folk hero.”
He does have a decent hook shot, but the rest is true.
You are right about SAS. Sean Elliot is top 3 most biased announcers right now. He goes the Spurs way on EVERY call no matter how bad or how obviously wrong one might be through replay. Being in my area in Texas and having more Spurs games play on fox SW than mavs or rockets, I’ll put the volume on mute so I don’t have to hear him.
That is the worst blog I’ve ever seen. The dude can’t make a point without saying f*cking. It’s like he’s f*cking 16 years old (see how unnecessary that is).
It’s supposed to be bad journalism lol. You can’t click on something called Breaking Beasley and expect it to be pleasing to the eye.
I love the little skip Matt Barnes does
I only value this guy for breaking news. Everything else he says is pretty asinine.
You can tell, given Woj’s writing style, that his original intention was to be a novelist. Unfortunately, one may also conclude rather quickly why he isn’t a novelist.
Funniest gif I’ve seen thus far. https://i.minus.com/ibfGACq50lur2k.gif
what makes the dunk impressive is the way brandon knight just fell on his a$$ and stayed on the ground for like 5 seconds before he moved!! it added so much more to the dunk.
Tommy heinson is biased for Boston but his play-by-play partner’s not bad.. The worst in the league are Utah’s and Denver’s hands down.
Even though NBK beat you to this about 4 hours ago I’ll still give you a like because I cannot stop watching this lol. There is just so much stuff going on I notice something new almost every time.
if i was a fan at the game…woulda came out of the stands to dap up deandre. i’ll risk getting thrown out
