Brandon Knight is still the Rodney Dangerfield of the NBA. When you mention his name to most people they automatically think about DeAndre Jordan dunking on him or Kyrie Irving crossing him. Maybe his recent appearance on Shaqtin’ a Fool. But Knight has been putting up All-Star numbers all season long so far and has been one of the best steals of the year for fantasy basketball owners.
With that said, it does seem like Knight continues to find himself in clips that become favorites to play over and over again on Vine and last night was no exception.
Despite putting up a game-high 20 points in the Bucks’ win, this clip of him getting knocked down by a pointless blind pick from Shawne Williams will surely have people tweeting his name with the #RIP hashtag again.
Also worth noting is this was Brandon Knight’s first victory in this building which is significant because he grew up less than 30 minutes away from it.
“This was my first time getting a win at home,” said Knight. “It feels good. My friends used to ask me, ‘Who are the Bucks?’ and it’s like, ‘We’re in Milwaukee.’ For us to come home and win, it is a blessing.”
Even if his friends don’t know who he plays for and the casual basketball fan only thinks of Memes when they hear his name, his coach had some positive things to say about him and his All-Star worthy play.
“He’s our leader and when you look at being able to step up and make a shot or find a way to get a rebound, that’s what leaders do,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “BK did that for us. He did a great job of keeping the pace offensively, keep running and be aggressive.”
