Before Kevin Durant signed with the Nets last year, there was talk that he might play for the New York Knicks. But Durant said that was never the case.
“Around February  I was thinking I didn’t want to be the savior of the Knicks or New York,’’ he said on JJ Redick’s Old Man and the Three podcast. “That never really moved me. I didn’t care about being on Broadway. I just want to play ball and go to the crib and chill."
“I never planned on going to the Knicks,’’ Durant added. “That was just the media putting that out there, especially when I didn’t sign a three-year deal . Once I signed a [one-year deal], just the noise got louder about me going to the Knicks for some reason. Knicks being the savior, you know how that goes. Every time a big free agent is up the Knicks are going to get him. So it just took off.”
How do you think the Nets will do with a healthy Durant and Kyrie Irving and a new coach in Steve Nash?
