The Kevin Durant rumors continue
I promise you that the rumors of Kevin Durant coming to the New York Knicks will not die down until he says that he’s staying with the Golden State Warriors, or he leaves for another team.
After getting his 2017-18 NBA Championship ring on Tuesday night, Durant posted a photo of himself wearing both of his title rings on Instagram.
What’s really interesting is that Durant’s brother, Tony Durant, then commented by writing, “Yessir brother!!!! Filling the hand up before we get outa here!”

Now, Durant’s brother could be trolling us, or he’s dropping a big hint. Of course, as you can see he didn’t mention the Knicks.
Right now, I don’t think Durant knows what he’s going to do, which is what Zach Lowe of ESPN wrote this week.
Durant will ultimately make his decision after the season, but I can’t imagine that the Knicks don’t have the best chance with his father and business partner being fans of the club.
Durant also sent a signal as well.
When news came out on Tuesday that Frank Ntilikina will be starting at small forward over rookie Kevin Knox, Durant liked it on Instagram. Of course, he quickly unliked the post, but nothing ever goes away on the internet.

With this season being a year of tanking for the Knicks, all we can do is follow the Durant to New York rumors. It’s the one thing to look forward to. Other than watching New York’s new crop of rookies.
