The NBA Combine is essentially one big job interview, which is why the question one team asked Kevin Knox is so inappropriate. Knox told reporters at NBA Draft media day that at the combine, a team tried to trick him into admitting he had a kid, which he does not:
Kevin Knox says one team interview at the Combine pressed him if he had a child. Knox, was surprised, obviously replying “no.” The team asked again, saying their intel had learned he had a child. Knox asked for the kid’s name and the team finally relented, admitting it was hoax.

What the hell? I’m pretty sure employers are not allowed to ask questions like that during job interviews, right? Jeez. Props to Knox for keeping his cool.
