RICHMOND- Madison Square Garden is no longer the Mecca of basketball.
Look no further than Brooklyn and take a glimpse of the Barclays Center off Atlantic Avenue.
The Brooklyn Nets landed two of the top free agents on the market in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
The Nets also landed DeAndre Jordan, who is expected to be a major presence in the middle.
For the other team, yes the other team known as the New York Knicks, two words pop up after this news from the Nets.
They’re Broken. They are officially broken.
The signings of Julius Randle and Bobby Porto’s are decent at best, but all of that was overshadowed by the Knicks pulling out of one of their press statements.
The statement said that the Knicks were not going to offer the max contract to Durant when previously they stated that they would give everything as soon as they saw the medical report from his injuries.
Don’t the Knicks, particularly owner James Dolan realize that because he is who he is, he needs to know that and he personally cannot ask for it?Once again, they got in their own way.
The Knicks won’t change and nether will their fans. It’s time to move in a different direction. And the Nets are where to go.
