Is this another sign that Kevin Durant is signing with the Knicks?
Golden State Warriors’ star forward Kevin Durant hasn’t been crazy about all of the questions surrounding his future and whether or not he’s going to bolt for the New York Knicks this summer.
News of Durant’s company Thirty Five Ventures opening an office in New York City won’t help end any speculation.
There’s no doubt that the Knicks are hoping that Durant will sign with them. So much so that they included a photo of him in order to try and get fans to sign up season tickets for next season.
Of course the Knicks are claiming that the photo is a coincidence, but let’s be honest, they knew what they were doing.
Durant is arguably the best player in the NBA, but I believe that he knows that if anyone is going to respect him the way they do LeBron James, he needs to play for a team like the Knicks where he can help carry them to the postseason and hopefully an NBA title.
There’s no reason for KD to stay with the Warriors. He’s already won multiple titles and will likely win another this season.
A new challenge of playing for a team like the Knicks in a city like New York is what his legacy needs. If he helps them win a title, he will be a legend in one of the biggest cities in the world.
