"Kentucky is basically the New York Knicks of college basketball."
"Kentucky is basically the New York Knicks of college basketball"?
Not sure where he wanted to go with this statement but comparing one of the most successful basketball programs for decades to the laughing stock organization that resides in Madison Square Garden is flat out absurd.
Now, if he's comparing the type of spotlight both Kentucky and the Knicks receive from fans and the media, that somewhat makes sense to an extent. But the Knicks have wallowed in relative obscurity for years now. Most of the attention they get is for being laughably bad and for kicking out their former star players. Never forgive them, Charles Oakley.
All this comes after Knox just defended Kentucky on twitter as the best school in the country. You can't now compare them to the Knicks dude.
Some members of the Knicks organization came away ‘very impressed' by Kentucky's Kevin Knox after his performance in a group workout last Saturday, sources say. Knox is likely to be available when NYK picks at No. 9 on Thursday. More: https://t.co/v11JyTScaq— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) June 15, 2018
However, New York does own the 9th overall pick in the draft, and this could be a ploy by Knox to position himself as a top ten pick. So, if that was his goal, I'm all for it. But anything other than that is just stupid.
