Are you a delusional fan that actually thinks the New York Knicks can land Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in free agency? If you aren’t, great. You’ve saved yourself some time. If you are however, you’ve got some rethinking to do. The two aforementioned superstars aren’t going to the Knicks for a number of reasons but mainly because they’re both championship caliber players (They’ve both won NBA finals) and they both want to lead a team so it makes little sense for them to join together.
One reason why Kyrie and KD wouldn’t make sense on the Knicks is because they’re both championship caliber players. The New York Knicks haven’t won an NBA championship since 1973 while either Kyrie and KD played on the last three NBA championship winning teams. Why would they waste their championship window years on a Knicks team that has repeatedly shown they can’t do enough to win even when they had a legend like Patrick Ewing and a young star like Kristaps Porzingis. I’m just saying if I was either Kyrie or KD i’d stay away from New York… unless they consider going to the Nets.
Another reason the Knicks aren’t going to land KD or Kyrie is because they both want to lead a team. I know Kyrie and LeBron recently buried the hatchet and became cool again and the possibility of them playing together in LA was mentioned by a few people. However, I also know they Kyrie left Cleveland after three consecutive NBA Finals appearances because he was tired of feeling like the little brother after LeBron returned to Cleveland as a free agent. So would he want to play with a star just as big as LeBron in KD.
