    The difference is that Knight is INCONSISTENT! Exact stuckey duplicate. The dude is such a horrible defender.

    This is stuckey all over again, were gonna wait for 8 years just so we can figure out what position Knight is natural at

    I think he would be a decent spark off of someone's bench.

    I know people say that he's young, however, i think certain things would still flash, and I dont see them. I basically see someone out there "hoopin" and not playing NBA basketball.
    Totally agree. Usually when you have a guy who is still young and needs to progress you will at least see signs of what he can become, but Knight isn't showing PG signs right now, his flashes have been scoring outbursts.

    He does remind me of Stuckey but instead of being a driving/slashing player he's a shooter. Horrible decision to allow him to work out with Stuckey in the offseason lol

    I've seen some amazing playmaking ability out of Knight, and a ton of stupid turnovers. A lot of young guards have that happen, so there is no telling how good he can turn out to be. I think Knight is a decent scorer who has been too focused on passing the ball in crazy, cool ways. Play your game, and the assists will come easier.

    The difference is that Knight was a better player last year then he is this year. And this is after him "training hard w/ stuckey" this offseason. He is playing the exact same minutes and shooting the same amount of shots. But his fg% have dipped drastically and his turnovers are up.

    And most imp he looks completely lost being a point guard.

    lol, I actually typed the same thing then changed my mind. I didnt want to be the first to say it.

    I think he is stuckey-ish, but smaller and has a 3 ball.

    Stuckey is a better defender and knight is a better 3 piont shooter, other then that they are the same.

    The thing that i will not understand, is that Knight is a speedy guard but this guy can't keep up w/ anyone on the defensive end. I mean Freddette was blowing past him! SLow friggin Jimmer freddette can't blow past anyone!

    im okay with knight being the point guard i think in the future this team runs the offense through the big men the way the kings did in the early 2000s and knight could just be a better version of mike bibby, it worked out for them it should work out for us we just need a wing who can run around screens, shoot the ball and play some d, i would like to get jeremy lamb and let him develop with knight, knight needs a guy a guy who can score, he has no one in the starting line up who scores off the ball consistently, he wont be a great point guard but he will get the job done
    POP! POP!

    Knight had the lowest assist rate for a rookie in nba history for a reason. And this is w/ a lineup that shot the ball more efficiently then the other rookies in the draft class like irving and thomas

    You can put a mark in the plus column for Brandon Knight after Friday night's 85-84 victory over the visiting Hawks.

    He has had better games stat-wise, considering he only had eight points and four assists. But he committed only two turnovers in 36 minutes, and his defense on point guard Jeff Teague probably was his biggest contribution.

    Teague, a lightning-quick player in his fourth season, had five points and nine assists in 42 minutes and was hounded by Knight.

    "Teague is a quick sucker," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said, "and so the ability not only to defend his first dribble and still anticipate his next move and keep him in front -- I thought Brandon had several really good defensive possessions."

    You ask, you shall recieve. I don't bs

    A leading metric for a point guard's ability to run a five man offense is "assist percentage". This number reflects the percentage of teammate field goals a player assisted while he was on on the floor. Knight assisted 20.8% of his teammate's field goals in 2011-12, which is one of the lowest assist rates for a rookie point guard in recent NBA history. In this century, Knight ranks 122nd in assist percentage amongst rookie guards.

    Some people point to the fact that Knight didn't have a summer league or a preseason to get to know his teammates or his coach's system. Neither did Kyrie Irving (36.5% AST), Ricky Rubio (37.4% AST) or Isaiah Thomas (25.6% AST). Others suggest that Knight's assist rate was low because his team shot poorly. Kyrie Irving's Cavaliers, Ricky Rubio's Timberwolves and Isaiah Thomas's Kings all shot worse than Detroit last year.

    So wasn't Irving not doubled tripled team'd? Does Knight get that same treatment?

    The difference between irving and knight is that irvings turnovers are legitimate turnovers where Knights are just careless. He just throws the ball in defenders hands or dribbles of himself constantly

    when did I say knight played terrible defense that game? I said he is a terrible defensive player and I have facts that back that up.

    Amare made Duncan shoot inefficiently in the playoffs. Does that make him Ben Wallace? Nash shut down other point guards once in a while, does that make him a great defender? Such baseless statements

    Knight is ranked 110 in defensive rating which is worse then his rookie year where he was a terrible defender
