A lot of people probably overlook this aspect, but it means that he's a high IQ passer and a hard worker, playing the most difficult position in football.

Or maybe even K20? He's wet like H20.
He kinda moves like Allan too.
This kid is like some basketball Frankenstein monster.
I see some Klay some PG some Giannis some Allan Hou some Paul Pierce, I could go on. He’s scary impressive.
Safe to say this draft class has lived up to expectations so far and all the lotto teams are happy. But Knox has the potential to be the best of the lot.
This isn’t overhyping a David Lee or Landry Fields or even a Channing Frye or Gallo.
The signs he shows are star quality attributes.
And with that and all that scoring ability he is really raw, they both are to varying degrees of their development. And he’s scoring and getting to the line like a pro.
His shot is pure. He’s longer than advertised and way more athletic. I was a Miles guy but then I really watched everything I could find on the kid. And I 360’d.
People say PG and I see it but the finesse around the basket (he’s just gotta get stronger) is damn near Harden-esque. At a stingy 6’9” and still growing....
It’s scary to think, and yes it’s way early, that he could actually be better than the guys he’s compared to in the long run. Klay ain’t 6’9”, Giannis can’t shoot, Allan didn’t get to the line (until late in his Knick career with the rip throughs), P-Double was never the athlete this kid is. I’m just saying, the Knicks don’t get these kinda players. Other teams do and we wonder why we never get them. This is different. He can be a great one.
