Kevin Durant Free Agency 2019: Two-Time MVP Exuding Misery and Unhappiness, NBA Pundits Claim
Kevin Durant has yet to break his silence regarding his plans for his upcoming free agency this summer. However, rumors are heavily speculating that the 30-year-old is headed for the New York Knicks, with multiple NBA pundits attesting to the claims.
One of the speculated reasons that Kevin Durant might want to transfer to another team is that he wants to change the fans’ perspective of him. Despite helping the Golden State Warriors win two championships in a row, a lot of NBA fans still view him in a negative light given that he joined the Dubs at the height of the team’s success.
A few analysts have also pointed out that Kevin Durant has been exuding misery and unhappiness lately, a fact that has been highlighted when the scoring machine went off during a press conference. His rant started when sports journalists incessantly nagged him to provide some insight about his plans for his upcoming free agency.
“I have nothing to do with the Knicks. I don’t know who traded [Kristaps] Porzingis. It got nothing to do with me. I’m trying to play basketball. Y’all come here every day asking me about free agency, ask my teammates, my coaches, rile up the fans about it. Let us play basketball. That’s all I’m saying,” Kevin Durant said.
Experts in the league have said that if the talented forward brings a title to the New York Knicks, then he can prove once and for all that he can indeed lead a team to championship heights. Further fanning this narrative is the recent letter of New York Knicks president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry to fans with season tickets.
The 300-word essay essentially assures fans that they’re confident about landing two big names with their cap space. Kevin Durant is heavily speculated to be that player, with Kyrie Irving touted to be the second. Of course, all of these are mere speculations at this point and the decision will ultimately come down from KD and Uncle Drew themselves. Whatever the case, it seems that this coming free agency is set to carve a new path for the future of the league.
