Kyrie Irving revealed why he considered playing for the New York Knicks this past summer.
Following Tuesday’s nights win over the New York Knicks, Boston Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving was asked why the Knicks were on his short list of teams that he wanted to play for when he requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“Where is this gonna go?,’’ said Irving, via the NY Post. “It’s pretty easy man. They were on my list for a reason, I think you guys know that. Close to home, that’s about it. I’m not going to go into detail about all that extra stuff because I know where this is going to lead.’’
It’s certainly valid to ask Irving why he was interested in playing for the Knicks, since the South Orange, NJ native can opt out of his contract and become a free agent in 2018.
If the Knicks are going to have a chance at ever signing a superstar like Irving, they need to first get their act together find their identity as a team. Right now they’re a mess and Kristaps Porzingis isn’t even sure he wants to stick around when his rookie contract runs out.
