Some people say that Brandon Knight is not a true point guard. Others say that he has no definite guard position. But one thing is for sure, the guy can ball and that's all you need to know. Picking up from where John Wall left off in Kentucky would be difficult for any point guard, but not for Knight. In his only season with the Wildcats, Brandon not only matched Wall but also one-upped him by leading Kentucky to the Final Four. And as of yesterday, Knight is now a member of the Detroit Pistons, and he's looking to make some noise in Motown while holding down the position he was always meant to play: leader.
Before his big day at the Prudential Center, we talked to Brandon at the Sean John Official NBA Pre-Draft Style Suite with Conversion Sports to see just how Complex he really is.
