Knicks sneak Kevin Durant into season ticket renewal pitch

  • Draymond Green Kevin Durant Warriors

Kevin Durant told the media to "grow up" as the frustrated Golden State Warriors star broke his silence and dismissed links with the New York Knicks.

While some have couched the Durant saga as a media boycott, he has conducted one-on-one interviews, eschewing press conferences and group sessions after shootarounds and games.

The Knicks don't have many of their own players to promote right now, particularly after trading Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks.

It's a new-age rendition of "Annie, Get Your Gun", circa 2019, the National Basketball Association free agency edition: "Anything you can do, I can do better..." "I'm proud of the way our whole team has handled this season, because there's a lot that's been going on, and it's just about playing basketball".

When pressed further, he told reporters: "Y'all come here every day, ask me about free agency, talk to my team-mates, talk to my coaches, rile up the fans about it".

Let us be frank, with the caveat that the choice lives inside the head of one guy who can and does change his mind: Insiders around the league think Kevin Durant is leaving the Warriors for the Knicks.

The ex-KKK Grand Wizard previously endorsed Donald trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. A Samoan-American, she was the first Hindu elected to Congress.

While many fans will say that Durant acted poorly and is not setting the right image, I have to disagree. And now when I don't wanna talk to y'all, it's a problem with me. "Come on man. Grow up". Grow up. Yeah, you, grow up. I come in here and go to work everyday, and I don't cause no problems. "I try to be the best player I can be". And I think he's doing a great job of that. Why do I have to talk to you. He might have showed that his skin is thinner than other stars - namely LeBron James. I just wanna play ball.

KD: "So? Who are you?" "That's the conversation you gonna have", Durant said.

While it has nothing to do how he is playing on the court, it has to do with what has been happening off the court with the media. So what he can't control is B.S. that happens in the media or people making a decision for him or all this other stuff.

"Let us play basketball, " Durant said in his two-and-a-half minute rant. I don't think about that kind of stuff. The media will be the media, and Durant must understand that's less likely to change. Now y'all piling on me because I don't want to talk about that.

But nothing Durant has done or said indicates that he already has one foot out the door in Oakland.
