Summer League: The Kevin Knox-Zion Williamson Highlights they don’t want you to see

The ground shook in Zion Williamson’s NBA Summer League debut, and that’s not Rick Pitino hyperbole. A 7.1 earthquake forced the game to end prematurely.

Only playing in the first half, Zion made one highlight in his 11-point performance and it came at Kevin Knox’s expense. It’s the only highlight the four-letter network and every other outlet is featuring from the game.

What they don’t want you to see is Kevin Knox’s first shot of the game, a deadeye three-pointer right in Zion’s face.

Or Knox’s partial block on Zion that he turned into ANOTHER three-pointer.

Knox nailed three treys before Zion registered a field goal. The former Wildcat made 6-of-12 shots to finish with 17 points, eight rebounds and a pair of blocks, including this ferocious one on the No. 1 overall pick.

Knox and the Knicks have the day off. A look at how the rest of the Cats fared on the first day of action in Vegas:

Tyler Herro continues to tear teams apart in the Summer League. After an excellent start in California, he went to Vegas and dropped a game-high 23 points in 23 minutes. he complemented his 55.6% shooting night with 4 assists and a pair of boards.

Mychal Mulder did not hit a three, but he scored four points in 12 minutes of action for the Chicago Bulls in a 20-point win over the Lakers.

— In 14 minutes of action Keldon Johnson made just 1-of-8 field goals to score two points. He’s either flaming hot or ice cold. By summer’s end, the former UK swingman needs to find a happy medium.

Jarred Vanderbilt’s Summer League debut with Denver was delayed thanks to the earthquake. He was set to square up against former Wildcat Derek Willis and the Phoenix Suns.

    So tired of the ESPN/Duke narrative. I wonder how long that contract between Duke and ESPN/Disney lasts??? Money talks.

      Yeah, the media might as well get down on their knees for Zion and get it over with.

    Zion is pretty accurate for 2 ft and closer, he’s screwed if he has to add a shot other than a dunk.

    Super bummed when I saw Miami v. NOLA wasn’t on the schedule. The way Herro’s been playing, he would’ve torched Williamson.

    What did I say would happen if he came up against a talented athletic big, he’d get blocked or shot over all night long.
