As an elite point guard during his playing career, he has a reputation for developing the position. That could be helpful with third-year Pistons guard Brandon Knight.

Jason Terry has been a human pinata for the better part of the last three days, subjected to ridicule for getting posterized by LeBron James in the Heat's win over the Celtics in Boston Sunday. Many observers believe Terry -- just like when the Pistons' Brandon Knight got dunked on by the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan -- simply should have gotten out of the way as James was about to catch the alley-oop. Cuban vehemently disagrees with that assertion. "More credit for Jet. I'm of the opposite category," the Mavs owner said last night. It's the gutless who worry about what they look like in a poster and it's the real guys, the real players who have no problem playing the game. "Like I said before, I give credit to Brandon Knight, I give credit to Jet. You do your job and not care about the posters or the tweets. Those are the kind of guys teams wants." Newsday

We really are." Frank added: "If Brandon could have fouled the guy (and stopped the basket), DeAndre Jordan, the way he shoots free throws, it would've been a total non-issue. But at least Brandon has the courage to put himself out there to make a play. And the fact that people laugh about it and joke about it, I don't know USA Today Sports

Jackson knows firsthand the experience of being victimized by an iconic dunk. The Phoenix Suns’ Tom Chambers tossed down a famous two-handed jam in 1989, while Jackson, then a point guard with the New York Knicks, futilely tried to draw a charge. In the wake of Knight’s victimization by Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan earlier this week and the Pistons in town Wednesday night, someone had to remind Jackson of his moment on a poster nearly 25 years ago. “The funny thing is that the people talking about the lists of the dunks -- the younger announcers forget about it until, you can tell, the one with a little bit of gray hair says, 'What about the Mark Jackson one?'” he said. “Then all of a sudden, it lights up. It was comical, because a lot of my players didn't know it was me. “They were talking about the Tom Chambers dunk, and a couple of the older guys said it was me in the picture. Then all of a sudden, it's 'that was you, Coach.’ It's a bad, bad memory.” Detroit Free Press

His latest setback -- a severely sprained right ankle suffered in Monday's loss to the Utah Jazz -- is another opportunity to show resolve. "Everything happens for a reason, so just take the good with the bad," Knight said quietly, after the Pistons' winless March continued Monday. "I'm the type of guy that, whatever happens, that's what's supposed to happen. "I put in the time and effort, so it'll go the way it's supposed to go when you do that." USA Today Sports
