Kevin Durant ruffled the feathers of New York Knicks fans when he chose to sign with the Brooklyn Nets over the team that plays at the basketball Mecca - and he did it again Tuesday in a radio interview. Instead, Durant opted to sign with the Nets.
Well, this made the Knicks a topic for at least 24 hours, thanks to Durant's candid comments.
"It's like the cool thing right now is not the Knicks", Durant added.
"I feel cool in blue and orange. Everybody has their own opinion", said Randle.
After saying that he gave thought to going to the Knicks, Durant shared his thoughts on why he doesn't think young players go to the Knicks. "For sure I'm gonna feel cool walking into that Garden Friday knowing that it's my home court".
"All I know is every day somebody outside our organization is talking about us, and I'm flattered", Fizdale said.More news: OnePlus 7T Pro to launch tomorrow: Here's what to expect

Randle signed a three-year, $63 million contract with the Knicks in the offseason.
Durant was asked if that series loss ranked among his top five playoff losses in his career, and the forward said no, then explained why. I've seen the Knicks in the finals, but kids coming up after me didn't see that.
For Knicks fans still stinging from Durant's decision to go to Brooklyn, this was more reason for.
"I didn't grow up with the Knicks being good".
After the second game of the 2019-20 campaign puts the Knicks against the Nets for the new-look teams early, the two sides additionally play November 24 and January 26 at Madison Square Garden, with Barclays Center's December 26 matchup sandwiched in between.
