Knicks rookie Kevin Knox has an entry for dunk of the year

| Thursday, February 14, 2019 9:24 a.m
Philadelphia 76ers’ Tobias Harris defends New York Knicks’ Kevin Knox during the second half Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019, in New York. The 76ers won 126-111.

It can be argued that the New York Knicks are the worst organization in all of sports.

But Wednesday night, rookie Kevin Knox provided possibly the best play of the NBA season.

The small forward caught a pass as he was cutting into the lane and hammered a monstrous dunk over Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons. Knox was even fouled on the play for an and-one situation, but he missed the free throw.

And even though Knox could win an ESPY for the play, the Knicks fell to the Sixers 126-111 for their 18th consecutive loss.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
