DeAndre Jordan's Dunk Of The Year Nearly Broke The Internet

Monday March 11th, 2013

Nothing stokes the creative fires of the Internet like a highlight-reel play -- and DeAndre Jordan's ferocious dunk over Brandon Knight during last night's Pistons-Clippers game was just that.

This what happens when a 6-foot-3, 189-pound guard tries to get in the way of a 6-foot-11, 265-pound center.


The Wikipedia vandals were out in full effect. Knight's cause of death was attributed to Jordan himself.

Indeed, Jordan was immediately cast as the undertaker.

Jordan's posterizatation was instantly repurposed onto a makeshift basketball card.

The fans seemed to love it ...


... even if Simba didn't.

You win some, you lose some. But you live. You live to fight another day.

Jordan's reaction may have been the most amusing part of the whole thing.

Knight, to his credit, seemed to have a sense of humor about it.
