Kevin Knox turned off phone to avoid social media attacks after committing to UK

Social media can be cruel, especially to high school players after they make their college decisions. Kentucky freshman Kevin Knox had a simple solution to avoiding the negativity: he turned off his phone.

“I turned my phone off for a day-and-a-half after all the chaos,” Knox said in the latest installment of’s “Meet the Wildcats” series. “As soon as I pressed send on Instagram and Twitter, I immediately turned my phone off, gave it to my parents and let them have it for like a day-and-a-half. I didn’t want none of that criticism, all those people cussing at me and all that bad, negative energy.”

We’ve heard a lot of this material before (how Knox and family would laugh at people thinking Kentucky was out of the running, his father’s connection to Vince Marrow and Lamar Thomas), but it’s definitely worth a read. Head on over to to check it out, and then watch Knox school poor Josh Hopkins in CATS (aka HORSE):

    Sometimes it just feels like the movie Ground Hogs day around here….and if this feeling is because I am a Kentucky fan and I am spoiled I apologize…

    Double Standard….these are the jackasses that are always saying UK fans need to get a life, all they have is basketball. Sorry about your luck losers but if you had a program like UK, you’d be shouting from the rooftops….prime example right here. And then they will say, we don’t buy in to the one and done system because it’s not right….you don’t “buy in” because you’re not getting the best of the best. Sit down and shut the hell up.
