Everything about him aside from his size reminds me of Devin Booker...even his poor, half flatter half lay-up attempt, drives remind of Booker

Allan Houston? No, not at all. Except the number. I'm gonna get a lot of flack and no I'm not saying he's going to be Durant but he reminds me of early Durant.
A new era or error?

Knox looked like a different type of player than he had been at Kentucky, with John Calipari sitting courtside. One NBA exec thought Knox would thrive outside of Kentucky, where his production was diminished by the context he had to play in. With the Knicks he’ll play more on the ball. “He’s **** really good,” the exec said before the game. “A real stud.”

Plus his handles are surprisingly good! Fiz said he's going to put Knox in pick n roll with KP :droop:

He looks like what would happen if you combined H20 and Camby.

Really impressed by game 1! I have been big on the patience for Frank train, but he needs to show SOMETHING. I know guys here are down on his passing, I actually liked his looks yesterday. He needs to show that he can score on inferior competition. If he can't get 20 in a SL game that's a bad sign for his career. He might just not have that first step ever which will keep him from being a star-level guy. His cap might be Andre Miller, forget Kidd and mini-Greek.

What do you think about @kporzee? Karl-Anthony Towns: PorzinGOD does not care or need my opinion for he is a higher life form then all of us.

If it is true that Fiz swayed Pills to take Knox then that will go a long ways towards solidifying them as a power trio known for working together closely on personnel decisions.

Wally's description of what a SF should do was a very transparent critique of the many years we had to endure watching the position played inefficiently. He's right. Glad we have a player who fits that bill.

18-19-20-22 That's the age of what could be a stud starting 5 if they reach their potential. With an avg age if 22 for 13 of our 16 guys signed. Is this real life?
