While Setting Date for His Murder Trial, Judge Asks Who Suge Knight Thinks Will Win NBA Finals; His Answer May Surprise You

No such thing as bad timing when it comes to the NBA playoffs.

While Marion ‘ Suge’ Knight was awaiting his murder trial date, he was asked about the NBA playoffs. Not by an officer or his lawyer, but a judge.

Per reports from USA Today, Knight was in a hearing for a separate case and the judge asked him which team will win the 2018 NBA Finals. Knight did respond during the awkward moment and said, “Houston.”

The judge said it was a good pick.

Knight has been accused of running over two men in 2015 with his truck, killing one of them. The date has been set in September. He has pleaded not guilty.

In regard to the NBA playoffs, the Rockets are leading the series 3-1 against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the West. Game 5 is Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. EST.
