There's strong speculation KD is headed to the Knicks after the GS thing is over.  It hasn't been a story but KD had no reason to sign a 1+1 this year.  A lot of smoke out there with his agent and their desire to get within the Knicks org.  Makes a lot of sense from a legacy standpoint.  If Porzingis gets healthy, the young players that have hit and they have the space, they can pull of something good. 

 

LA vs NY vs BOS vs GS.  A lot of major markets all great at once.

That would be nice to see. Though, from what I have read the NYK organization is toxic AF.

Depends.  It seems the last few years Dolan has taken a step back and let the new FO do its thing since booting Phil.  They've been decent via the draft it seems so far.  All they need is an incumbent star or potential star, likeable coach and cap space.  They have 2 of those already. Like LA, the Knicks with a good situation is as enticing as any.

What's up with all the baseless discussion around Durant leaving? To the Knicks?? One of the worst run organizations in the NBA for the last 20 years! 

 

Durant would be foolish to waste his prime anywhere else. He has a chance to establish himself as the leader of one of the most dominant dynasties ever, rivaling only the 90s Bulls. Why would he ever pass that up?

My guess is it's a rebuttal to those that say, you can't win on your own/you joined a dynasty after you were up 3-1 on them.

I hope we get back to where all time great players spend their entire prime with one organization. This team jumping is annoying imo.

It makes it nearly impossible to have legendary rivalries.

I have to agree with you on this one. Players hopscotch and double dutch quick these days.

I know Kid is going to call me a hypocrite but I will accept that L. I’m leaning more towards the kids bandwagon now. We could potentially have something. Unless the spurs do a Ingram swap straight up then [expletive] that. Lebron Rondo and Lance just might be able to carry these kids and win it all.

The feelings for the kids peaks from now (start of SL) till we go on our first 5-10 game losing streak.

I remember the Lonzo Ball fever we had over here that died out as soon as the season started.
