New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox shredded Ben Simmons Wednesday night in a loss to the 76ers.
The former Kentucky Wildcat cut through the lane, elevated and absolutely smashed on Simmons. It was one of the most brutal dunks that we’ve seen all year.

I feel like I have to say this all the time, but you just can’t allow yourself to get dunked on. It just can’t happen.
Either get out of the way or punch the dude coming down the lane. There’s only one thing you can’t do, and that’s jump with a guy so that you can get dunked on. (RELATED: Duke
Simmons, who absolutely should know better, did exactly that, and he paid a massive price for his mistake.

This tape just needs to be played over and over again for basketball players everywhere. If you jump with a guy and don’t stop him, then you’ve earned yourself a spot on a poster forever.
Something tells me that Knox won’t forget this massive slam anytime soon. As for Simmons, he honestly might have PTSD because it doesn’t get much worse than that play for a defender.
