Add another name to the long list of players who don’t like Kentucky’s checkerboard uniforms.
Kevin Knox told KSR on Tuesday, “I’m not a big fan of the checkerboards. Some of the players talked about it throughout this year; we just didn’t like it. We didn’t like the checkerboard at all. It just didn’t look good.”
After suggesting a black alternate uniform, Knox went back for more checkerboard criticism by adding, “I don’t like the checkerboard. They need to get rid of those. They gotta get rid of those.”
A couple of weeks ago, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander said the same thing. He told KSR, “I don’t like the checkerboard. I’m not feeling it. At all.”
Knox and Gilgeous-Alexander join an anti-checkerboard group that includes former players De’Aaron Fox, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker.
