During the beginning of his career, Knight read Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: The Story of Success. Through his struggles in Detroit as a Piston, to his success in Milwaukee, Gladwell’s 10,000-hour rule resonated with Knight. “I read that a couple of years ago and kind of thought it reminded me of myself a little bit, as far as you’ve got to put in the hours to be great at a certain event or certain sport,” Knight said. “Whatever it is, you’ve got to put the time in.

To make room for Knight, Phoenix parted ways with point guard Isaiah Thomas as well as Ennis and Plumlee after sending Goran Dragic (and brother Zoran) to the Miami Heat. Suns officials said after the trade they believed that Knight was the best player involved. “A lot of people tried to put limitations on my game and say I wouldn’t be this, I wouldn’t be that,” Knight said. “I think I’ve proven a lot of people wrong. I don’t think a lot of people thought I would be here based on my first two years.” Triangle Offense

After all, the Bucks practice facility is located on the grounds of the Archbishop Cousins Catholic Center in St. Francis, Wis., south of Milwaukee on the shores of Lake Michigan. How much security do they really need? I sat down in the lobby and tried to make eye contact. Nothing. Wake up, buddy! I wasn’t the first and won’t be the last to get fooled. It’s a sculpture, a very lifelike sculpture that has duped several people, including players, new employees and visitors.
