Matt Knight is the best two way big man in the nbl

He is the best two way big in the league. Hands down the best rebounding and defensive force in the league and one of the best offensive bigs if not the best.

Nothing new there. He is and he has been the NBL's best big for years. If not for his injury problems he would have been a long-term quality international.

Cool thanks for sharing. Cats fans need their own site at this point. They don't stop on here.

^ websites arent limited to geography so im pretty sure anyone can post anything from anywhere on a forum. Besides without Perth fans, this forum would be nearly as quiet as ozhoops.

Another pointless cats thread yippy! They have suffocated the hell out of this site. Was so much better when 36er fans were the majority crowd on here.

Wow. even ignoring that the thread was started by one of their own, this really brought the anonytrolls out in force.

Yes Knight is very good player, and what's more he's a fierce competitor with a big heart. Never gives up.
He's also very experienced and knows the league well, which keeps the foul count down.

I don't know about international potential, he's a bit slow in transition, and probably not big or athletic enough, but he's the perfect size for the role he plays in the NBL.

I think that when you review the season, there are "better" big men in the league, but what can be easily overlooked is the way Knight steps up when the pressure is on.

The other thing to remember with Knight is that (when injury free) he typically powers through the first half of the season, but tends to "tire" towards the end.

Ask Mika Vukona how Matt Knight compares to international power forwards if you doubt he could have played internationally.

Knight has mastered the art of doing the little things well, and doing them consistently. That's a huge compliment, because it's something few players ever manage.

Spot on, just does what his team needs. Always seems to be in the right position and makes good decisions, which is very valuable from a big man.

"Why does Dazz keep posting when everyone hates him?"

While Dazz has some bizarre points of view, if you actually hate him and can't resist taking potshots at him, then that says more about you.

Is knight having a career year? His jumpshot appears back to the accuracy of his west Sydney days. Looks very confident shooting it this season

Meh, depends what you mean by "international."
He spent a year or so in Hungary, so yeah had he been so inclined I imagine he could played a few more leagues in various euro comps.
TBH I was thinking more along the lines of the Boomers, but I take your point.

I'm just glad he's been playing for us. If you look at locals, over his time in the NBL, he is easily one of the best.

Probably the most underrated player in the NBL over the past 5 years.

Kickert over Knight last year what a disaster

I'll be in Perth for a few weeks and will be going to watch the wildcats play.

Hoping to catch up with Dazz for a beer!

Knight is a flog.

Dazz is probably one of my favorite posters. I don't like everything he writes but he's definitely a net positive. Better than ROFL writing such and such is a flog

"TBH I was thinking more along the lines of the Boomers, but I take your point."

I was talking about the Boomers, that's why I mentioned Mika Vukona, who has mentioned more than once in interviews that Matt compares well with the various international power forwards he competes against each year.

It's a shame, because the Boomers were in crying out for a player like Knight when Matt Nielsen retired, but he just couldn't keep himself healthy.

Nothing wrong with someone who calls a spade a spade, why should calling a flog a flog be any different. I'm in for a beer.

Sorry Paul, you've lost me
Are you talking about a decade ago, when the Kiwis actually played international ball?

When he's fit, I'd take Knight over any other big Aussie in the NBL. The league suits him, and vice versa. His ability to play the 4 or 5, even against some of the big guys now in the league, continues to be of great benefit for the Cats. McKay is obviously a different type of player, without Matty's presence we were getting monstered.
