Everyone loves a player who gives it his all. Someone who hustles on every play even if it happens to put them in harm's way. And that's exactly what Brandon Knight did here.

Late in the fourth quarter of a game against the Washington Wizards back when he was on the Detroit Pistons, Knight was going after a loose ball heading toward the Pistons' bench. However, his momentum ended up carrying him over the bench and into the first couple of rows.

This hustle landed him right on top of the Gatorade cooler behind the bench, which then toppled over, covering him in what appears to be light blue Gatorade.

You have to applaud an effort like that, regardless of the outcome. You also have to hope there were no injuries sustained and the equipment manager has a fresh uniform on deck.
