After being criticized by anonymous sources earlier the week, Kevin Knox, all 19-years-old of him, decided to respond in a mature manner, with his game. The rookie from Kentucky had his best game of his young career with 26 points (9-12), 4 rebounds, and 4 assists against one of the best teams in the NBA.
Watch in the video above how Kevin Knox counters point-by-point to the criticism he received earlier this week. For context, a sample of the criticism Knox received is provided below.
“I don’t like how he’s playing,’’ an Atlantic Division scout said. “He’s looking for his shot right away. I like when he puts the ball on the ground. He’s a big boy, but he’s capable of getting closer to the basket than launching 3-pointers. He’s also got to wake up a little. There’s loose balls he can get to. He’s lazy on defense a bit.”
