It just seems like Deju Vu all over again in the eyes of the New York Knicks. A few weeks ago during the NBA draft, Knicks fans were booing Kevin Knox on and off the stage when the team selected him, now it seems as if he is the best player in the summer league. Does this sound familiar Knick fans? Do you guys remember booing Kristaps Porzingis off the stage, because I for sure do. I get it, I know we all would have loved Michael Porter Jr, but in reality he may miss the upcoming season and his back issue is too big of a risk. He is a great player, but I think the front office did an amazing job drafting Knox.
Through 3 games this summer, Knox has been putting on a clinic averaging 21.3 points 6.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, while displaying freak athleticism dunking over everybody. I believe this kid can be as good as Jayson Tatum or Donovan Mitchell and that says a lot. I never really understood why Knox got so much hate on draft day, but if he is anything like Porzingis, we will be bowing down to him in a couple of months. I am excited to see what the future holds for Knox and the Knicks because I want him to prove every doubter wrong who booed him on that stage and for him to show New York that he can be a star in this league. No one should ever boo a player, especially if they know nothing about him, so I hope Knox goes down the same road as Porzingis because we all know that is promising.
www.nosebleedsports.co/nosebleednba/could-kyrie-irving-end-up-in-the-big-apple-next-summer The Knicks are a VERY young team and they will all go through some growing pains together, so I believe the future is promising. Second round pick, Mitchell Robinson is also looking pretty good this summer, including a great game last night vs. the Celtics where he put up 17 points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocks. So Knick fans, I know it’s been the past years have been beyond rough, but I think the Knicks can make a return to the playoffs especially with LeBron now out of the East. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know for one thing Kevin Knox is going to be a stud.
