Kevin Durant: 'The Cool Thing Now is Not the Knicks'

Kevin Durant: 'The Cool Thing Now is Not the Knicks'”

After missing out on Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency this summer, the Knicks used their cap space on Julius Randle (who thinks the Knicks are cool), Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Wayne Ellington, Marcus Morris, Elfrid Payton and Reggie Bullock.

Durant appeared in an in-studio interview with Hot 97 FM's "Ebro in the Morning" in New York City and said the brand of the Knicks wasn't as cool now as the Nets or some of the other teams in the National Basketball Association.

Kevin Durant drew the ire of Knicks fans Tuesday when he said the New York-based team wasn't "as cool as" the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers or Durant's Brooklyn Nets. "But I didn't really do any full analysis on the Knicks", he said.

"I thought about it, yeah, just a thought", Durant said in an interview on Ebro in the Morning Show on Hot 97 FM.

"I like the guys that wanted to be here", Fizdale said, according to Iseman.

Over the summer, Durant chose to sign with the Nets in July on a four-year contract worth $164 million.

Durant at least believes the Knicks are "trying" to flip that narrative, but he thinks it remains "hard to get the best players to play here", even with the lure of Madison Square Garden.

Regarding the city's undying love for the Knicks, KD replied to one fan: "I know it's a Knicks town, we got our own lil section though". "We really haven't been focused on what's going on on the outside". Even when Melo [Carmelo Anthony] and J.R. [Smith] and those guys were here, we always watched Knicks games. "That's just my opinion".

The former NBA MVP has a point.

"You walk into MSG as an opposing player, the energy is different from any other arena you're gonna walk into".
