14. Out of Bounds
Basketball players must make decisions very quickly. You can’t be indecisive because opponents will make you pay. In one game for the Milwaukee Bucks against the Indiana Pacers, Knight did everything that he shouldn’t. This player knows adversity because opponents have dunked on him many times and also broke both of his ankles. But he also produced one of the most cringe-worthy plays in NBA history.
Knight picked up the ball and had two options. He could either shoot the three-pointer or pass to a teammate. Instead, he jumped into the air and floundered like a beached fish. The hapless player literally spasmed in the air several times before falling to the ground and turning the ball over. You have to feel sorry for him because it was like he was too excited and just lost control of his body.
