The Knicks, though, have been closely linked to Durant, a two-time NBA Finals MVP, in free agency. That was most likely done on goal.

The photo showed Durant guarding Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson.

As the organization states, it was a rotating image that appears on their website, but given the amount of attention it has received, it decided it was in the team's best interest to remove it.

"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took the precaution of taking the photo down".

She said the country's "sense of community is fracturing" today, "worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics". John Bessler grew up in Mankato and his parents are Bill and Marilyn Bessler, who both taught at Minnesota State University.

Yet, Durant is aghast why anyone who follows basketball is more interested in what he'll do this summer, rather than what he did during a largely meaningless regular-season game.

Because of the Knickerbockers' recent roster moves, trades and dismal record, it is entirely possible that NY will land all three superstars come 2019-20.

"It's more so the beat writers because they're around you every single day and they see the pattern of who you are as a human and as a basketball player". "I know how good I am".

The photo was part of a pitch to season-ticket holders to renew their packages for the 2019-20 season. NY has lost 16 straight games, just four shy of a dubious franchise record, and holds the NBA's worst record. A sales representative for the team was sacked, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, with the Hawks saying in a statement that the man's "specific reference" did not "represent how our basketball operations or our business staff have consistently communicated about free agency".
