"I mean, to me, I don't know what the culture, whether it's an AAU environment — I hate to blame that — or what the situation is, but when I read that and saw that stuff how it was such a ... it just goes to show you we're celebrating the wrong (stuff). 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

Brandon Knight came back from one injury and when the Detroit Pistons guard was forced back to the bench 45 seconds later, he had a second one. Knight left Wednesday's win over the Charlotte Bobcats with a hyperextended right knee in the third quarter. Upon his return, he quickly incurred a twisted right ankle and hobbled back to the bench again. "I think I was just trying to compensate and wasn't really ready to go back out there, just wanted to," Knight said. "God found a way to sit me down." Booth Newspapers
