If i am him i would take it. I mean the Knicks really? I don’t know if it’s bs. Something is just weird here. Irving just looks like a loser signing with a team like the nets all by himself. Also isn’t Russell their point guard?
I completely get the sense in hindsight that when Kyrie signed with us, he was looking forward to be the beloved face of a franchise. IMO he wants his own team and if that changes he's gonna settle for some Hollywood celebrity as Bron's likeable sidekick. And obviously, if he signs in NY/BRK, part of the equation is that's where he grew up.
Regardless, KD might be a little soft but he's not a loser. Do people really think he was saying to himself "man I can't stand Steph and Dray, I can't wait to team up with someone else and play for James Dolan and the NY Knicks!" Maybe he had some fleeting thoughts here and there but inevitably he was going to sit down at the end of the season, realize that the grass isn't always greener, and think to himself "what in the living ****ing hell was I thinking?"
IMO the Knicks rumors likely came from the Knicks org, in an attempt to momentarily convince their fans that they were relevant again.
