Hey guys i was wondering what you guys suggest for a fighting style for someone who has chronic knee tendonitis, basically can only bend knees to 90 degrees without too much pain, i am thinking boxing or muai thai thanks for the advice!

Obviously the best fighting style is going to be the one the least amount of kicking, but regardless of that it's going to be an issue that you'll need to treat properly. That means a good prehab/rehab combo and medical treatment if that's what you need.

How is it with impact? if impact bothers it you will not want to do muay thai considering the high use of knees. Also you would be surprised how much of boxing is about the legs and footwork. That goes for any fighting style actually.
I found that with my elbow tendonitis I just had to reduce the stimulus causing it. In this case it was climbing. So I would suggest you stop playing basketball until your pain free, and then go another 6 to 9 months without pain until you attempt playing again. Also consult an orthopedist on this since I am not a doctor.
