And if he’s looking for approval from those critics, Durant could do the exact opposite with the Knicks. Maybe that’s part of the appeal. The Knicks won’t finish with the worst record we’ve ever seen in the league (not unless they drop the rest of their games), but the losing has already reached historic proportions. Heading into Saturday’s game against the Raptors at the Garden, the Knicks had dropped 15 straight – one off the franchise record set during the 2014-15 campaign under Derek Fisher. They had already broke the team record for consecutive defeats at home with 15.

Durant's excuse for getting mad at media is beyond ironic.
Kevin Durant went on a media tour to explain his bashing of the media. After not speaking to the media for nine days, the Warriors star blew up on the media for speculating on his upcoming free agency plans -- which could include the Knicks -- during a press conference last week after the Warriors demolished the Spurs. On Monday morning, Durant appeared on an episode of ESPN's "Get Up" to explain why he wants to only talk basketball with the media, not business. Mind you, the business side of basketball is just as important as the game these days.
