New York Knicks have a very good shot at luring KD away from the Bay Area. ... The same allure that LeBron had towards the Los Angeles Lakers, just the building, the culture, is the same way I know that KD feels about the Knicks." — @ChrisBHaynes

This is the right move for everyone. I'm all in on this play. And I've got the weirdest feeling that KD wants to take on the ultimate challenge in all of sports.

Why would he ever move (again)? I don't see it. My guess is that he stays long-term there. All those free agent rumors are blah blah for me.

We have so many things to fix before entertaining thoughts of signing kd. Let's figure out how to defend, get the effort every game, for example. Baby steps...

I'm fine with baby steps, letting the process play out and all of that. But I just see this match too good to pass up so I'll just hold this happy thought in the back of my head.

I was getting hyped until I read where Durant said if not from his mouth [regarding free agent rumors], then don’t believe it.

Yes, we all have heard it before..

But if there is a chance you got to go for it..

KD + Unicorn would be great.. If he comes as a FA we have a shot at the ECF, for sure..

A lot of players would be intrigued about coming for cheap..

Those are facts.. This is no Kyrie Irving, we are talking about KD..

mmmmmm

how does he fit with KP and Knox though? KP's gotta play the 5 in that scenario.

I really hope one of our PGs learns to command an offense if we're going to spend all our money on KD.

KD is a real max guy...thats a guy you just "get and figure it out later"

Bron/KD are so clear 1 and 2 as best players in the game that you just get them and go from there.

idk how KP/KD/KK works...i also dont konw if KK starts in that situation. I'd put a plus defender next to KP/KD...get the right guard next to Frank and call it a day.

Yeah I'm not focused on it but that Frontline would be dominant

Ironically, we'd be sorely lacking your username.

I'd hope for Mitch to really get his rookie season under his belt and challenge for the starting spot at center. From there, bump KP/KD/KK to the next position. Doesn't matter that KK isn't a guard. KD's ball handling skills, playmaking, and shot making abilities will balance things out a bit. Besides, Fizdale has been consistently preaching positionless basketball.

At that point you just go small (which isn't small at all) and spread it out. I like Mitchell and my big lineup but you get Durant and you can scrap that. By then we shouldve probably shed Kanter anyway so Mitchell could just come off the bench. The other option is you could probably trade Mitchell for a great prospect at a more needed position. But that's a problem I'd worry about later.

Just get Durant :drool:
