Even His Teammates Believe That Kevin Durant Will Be A Knick Next Season


On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress declared the thirteen American colonies as a new nation–the United States of America–and no longer part of the British Empire. The day would become an American holiday; a day of pride, remembrance, and celebration across the great nation. Fireworks bursting in front of the night sky while sparklers are glaring in front of a young child’s immense grin are common images thought upon for the Fourth of July. But, in 2016, it was way different. An Independence Day decision made by one of the NBA’s greatest players would send thousands of Oklahoma City Thunder fans–as well as NBA fans in general–into a tizzy, upsettingly remembering the news they heard that morning.

The city’s most beloved son, Kevin Durant had decided to part ways with the team to join forces with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green in Golden State with the Warriors.

Three years, and two Championships (maybe three after this season) later, Kevin Durant is apparently trying to save his legacy. In 2016, he joined the best team in the league. In 2019, he might join the worst.

What has been rumored for months, is becoming more obvious by the day, and now, even some of KD’s teammates believe that he will join the Knicks next season. Per ESPN:


Some of Durant’s former teammates think it’s going to happen, per ESPN sources. Several of his current teammates have told friends that they think it’s going to happen, sources said. Opposing agents believe it’s a fait accompli: “Just a matter of putting pen to paper,” is how one agent of another top free agent in the 2019 free agent class put it.”


Earlier this month, Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher already reported that Durant going to the Knicks was pretty much a “done” deal.


“From everything I’ve heard, it’s done,” he said. “Yes, he’s leaving… If he so much as gets [the Knicks] into the Conference Finals, he will be beloved there like he never has been at Golden State after 2 Championships.”
