Rookie F Kevin Knox is starting to win the hearts of Knicks fans with his great Summer League play. But one Knicks fan showing him some love got him excited.
ESPN NBA analyst Doris Burke is a known Knicks fan, and seems to have taken a liking to the 18-year-old that was drafted ninth overall by the Knicks last month. Knox posted to his Instagram story Monday night, saying he had a conversation with Burke, who loves his game.

Burke and the rest of the Knicks' faithful have to love what Knox has shown in his early taste of the NBA. Knox collected 22 points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes in his first Summer League game against the Hawks. He added19 points, five boards, and two steals on Sunday night against Utah as well.
His performances, which have included some thunderous dunks, generated one NBA executive to be rather blunt with his synopsis of the 6-foot-9 forward.
"He's f--king really good," the anonymous executive told The Athletic's Mike Vorkunov. "A real stud."
