 Throwline Thursdays: DeAndre Jordan

The iconic dunk by DeAndre Jordan over Brandon Knight in 2013 stands as a legendary moment in NBA history, emblematic of the sheer athleticism and spectacle of professional basketball. 

During a game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Detroit Pistons, as part of the Clippers' celebrated ‘Lob City’ era, Jordan executed one of the most memorable dunks of all time.

The play occurred when Chris Paul lobbed the ball towards the rim, setting up Jordan for an explosive alley-oop dunk. Brandon Knight, attempting to defend, found himself in the unfortunate position of being on the receiving end of Jordan's monstrous slam.
