Kevin Knox Impresses in NBA Debut

Just a few weeks after the Knicks fans booed Kevin Knox, Knox made his first appearance in a Knicks jersey today in a summer league game against the Hawks in Las Vegas. In his first appearance, Knox didn’t disappoint racking up 22 points with eight rebounds.

Knox put the Knicks fans and the NBA on notice with his first trip down the floor with a steal and a slam for the first points in his NBA career.

Kevin Knox wouldn’t just stop there as he had a couple more impressive dunks throughout the game.

All these highlights and that’s not even mentioning this excellent effort play in the 2nd quarter.

Knox’s play today earned high praise from twitter as well.

It was nice to see Kevin Knox shoot at a high volume as well as he put up 20 shots, including seven threes. While he only hit one from behind the arc, it’s a good sign that he’s showing the confidence to shoot more often, especially behind the arc.

It seems like the Knicks fans, for now, are eating their words a bit. Kevin Knox is off to a great start in his young NBA career.

    Nice effort all around. Hardly enough to silence any doubters, but definitely a good sign of things to come.

    Sat behind 4 Knicks fans during the game. They had to be the dumbest basketball fans (with the most to say) I have ever heard. Never pay attention to a Knicks fan.

    I hope Knox does well. I really like the kid. I think if he had shown more personality and drive, he could’ve been as beloved as someone like Fox, maybe Ulis.

      Knox has a personality slightly reminiscent of the Harrisons – as in ” all business.”

      Agree with you and hope he does well.

      Go Black Bears and CATS
