Kevin Durant Says He Will ‘Never’ Play for the Knicks

by August 16, 2017

Sorry, Knicks fans: Kevin Durant has zero interest in relocating to New York.

KD was recently in Gotham—which he called the “so-called Mecca of basketball”—to unveil a newly renovated court at the East Side Community High School, and when asked when he’ll become a Knick, KD said “never.”

While in the city, Durant took part in some pickup runs with LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.

Per the Mercury News:

Durant, James and Carmelo Anthony starred in a couple of Instagram videos posted Tuesday afternoon by Chris Brickley, a trainer for Durant and and Anthony, that showed some of the pick-up game.


KD and King James are obviously on good terms again after a trash-talking repartee during Game 4 of the NBA Finals. That makes sense considering Durant has praised LeBron on several occasions โ€” and even collaborated on a rap song way back in 2011.


“Weโ€™ve built up that healthy level of competition where we just go, just let our games take over,โ€ Durant said about James just before the Finals started. โ€œYou know heโ€™s going to bring the best out of you and I know I bring the best out of him.โ€
