The New York Knicks secured a much-needed road win over the New Orleans Pelicans in their last outing but the night didn't end so well for guard Ron Baker.
During the encounter, he was sent to the locker room after being clattered with an elbow by Anthony Davis.
To make things worse for Baker, the Pelicans big man also managed to throw down a vicious dunk on him in the process and put him on a poster.
The Knicks man returned to the game but had to endure seeing the play all over social media and on Sportscenter's Top 10 plays of the night.
Thankfully, he showed a brilliant sense of humor about the incident and took to Instagram to share a hilarious post with fans.
Baker showed off his black eye that was partially covered by a bandage and added the caption: "When you wake up and turn on #ESPN, and see you made @sportscenter Top 10."
It wasn't quite the dunk of the year from 'The Brow', but his opponent will surely be known as the dunk victim of the year, especially as he was called for a foul on the play too.
With New York pulling out a narrow 105-103 win, the 24-year-old could afford to have fun with it and see the funny side.
The shooting guard also had a great response to a post by Bleacher Report saying: "my iPhone X facial recognition isn’t working rn...."
Baker's attempt to challenge Davis' dunk didn't end well and he's quickly become a meme and the butt of many jokes on social media. As you'd expect, the internet was not going to miss an opportunity to roast him.
But he's had the last laugh with his terrific response and it's refreshing to see players show a light-hearted side in regards to this kind of play.
It was a brave attempt, but the Wichita State product will certainly think twice about going up to contest a dunk against one of the best big men in the league again.
The victory must have made it worthwhile, however, as it allowed the Knicks to move back to .500 in the Eastern Conference and snap a four-game losing streak.
They'll take on the San Antonio Spurs at home on Tuesday night before embarking on a three-game road trip.News Now - Sport News
