Kevin Durant and the Warriors are in New York on Friday to take on the Knicks. The Knicks are rumored to be one of the teams KD is considering joining when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season.
Prior to the game on Friday, a marketing company put up a billboard near Madison Square Garden attempting to recruit the Warriors star to the Knicks.

KD was asked about the billboard and revealed that he wasn’t impressed.
“It’s the time the NBA is in,” he said. “We look forward to free agency as fans, and your guys’ job is to kind of look towards the future a little bit. And the fans love it. So I understand.
“To be honest, I don’t know how I feel about that type of stuff. It’s cool. No disrespect, but I’m not really impressed with that type of stuff. I just really like playing basketball. … I know all of that stuff is a part of it, but for me I don’t really get up for that stuff.”
The Knicks are going to have to step up their game if they want to trick KD into signing with them. Get those cupcakes ready.
