Stephen A. Smith: "Kyrie Irving is headed to Madison Square Garden with Kevin Durant."
The New York Knicks can lay the foundation for an eventful offseason on Tuesday night by securing the #1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Even if the Knicks fail to land Zion Williamson (and there's an 86% chance that'll be the case) the team still has enough cap space to sign two superstars this summer, such as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
On Monday's episode of "First Take" Stephen A. Smith was adamant about the fact that Irving will be joining the Knicks this offseason along with KD. Additionally, Smith says Knicks owner James Dolan is prepared to give the duo whatever the hell they want.
"But from everything that I've been hearing over the last few days, Kyrie Irving is heading to New York City. Kyrie Irving is headed to Madison Square Garden with Kevin Durant. People in his inner circle are trying to bring the Nets into the mix, but clearly, New York is the destination. The likelihood is that it will be MSG and obviously, Max [Kellerman], and I will admit, I'm saying this for your entertainment, Max Kellerman, because I know it's going to get you going after I say this. I am told that James Dolan himself has basically said: 'Whatever the hell you want. I will move the hell out of the way. I will give you whatever you want. It doesn't matter. I'll take care of you,' to the Kyries and the Kevin Durants of the world."
