This could be one of the worst days in New York Knicks history. The summer from hell began with not getting the first overall pick in the NBA draft. But it was ok there was the dream of getting Kyrie and KD. And then yesterday, there was the rumors that Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant could join the Knicks. Then today, A Woj BOMB dropped and sent the MSG faithful into a free fall:
Brooklyn is making a clean sweep tonight: Brooklyn will sign Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, league sources tell ESPN.

Yup, the other side of the bridge. The Brooklyn Nets changing the landscape of basketball was tough to swallow for New York Knick fans.

But then word came out that The Knicks weren’t even willing to sign KD to a full max deal because of his Achilles injury.
The Knicks and owner Jim Dolan were not prepared to offer Kevin Durant a full max contract due to concerns over his recovery from the Achilles injury, league sources tell me and @wojespn. Knicks officials are in Los Angeles tonight, meeting with free agents such as Julius Randle.
