As there were talks on Kevin Durant’s transfer this summer, rumors started that he might join the New York Knicks to bring them back to form but in turn, he signed with the other New Yorkers the Nets.
He shared a post on Tuesday stating that he actually had the Knicks in mind but it was not fixed and he also added saying: “I thought about it, yeah, just a thought,” Durant said in an interview on the Ebro in the Morning Show on Hot 97 FM. “But I didn’t really do any deep, full analysis on the Knicks.”
When questioned he said that the Knicks are struggling to reach the top though they were once a history and also mentioned their recent failure.
In addition, he posted on Twitter: “They’re trying. They’re trying,” Durant said. “It’s hard to get the best players to play here. It’s hard … I think a lot of fans look at the Knicks as a brand and expect these younger players who, in their lifetime, don’t remember the Knicks being good. I didn’t grow up with the Knicks. I’ve seen the Knicks in the Finals, but kids coming up after me didn’t see that. So that whole brand of the Knicks to them is not as cool as, let’s say, the Golden State Warriors or even the Lakers or the Nets now.” “It’s like the cool thing right now is not the Knicks.”
Oops! Look like it was an added light to the fire for the Knick fans, but as per Kevin’s perspective, the Knicks should have found their way to bounce back and build a strong team.
If Kevin has signed with Knicks it would have enhanced the sulking team but rather they can learn from his thoughts.
