New York Knicks fans are now resorting to crazy creativity relating to the entire fanbase’s Kevin Durant summer hopes and dreams.

The one loaded word stitched above the number 35 cloaked in white letters of an orange and blue sea has an entire fandom taking notice.

One New York Knicks fan made sure he created the right jersey following the trade of stud Kristaps Porzingis, via Instagram @ekorenkov.

It’s now all about Kevin Durant.

Durant, 30, is, by far, the best player to enter free agency during the Summer of 2019. He’s a stud who can play both the three and the four. Lengthy, he’s currently averaging 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.0 steals on a crisp .508 from the floor.

Usually, hope would serve as a fleeting notion involving the Knickerbockers and free agency, but with the Royal Ivey connection remaining strong (KD’s best and most trusted NBA friend), realistic hope is the word of the hour. Ivey is, of course, a current assistant coach under David Fizdale in Manhattan.

At this point, it’s anybody’s best guess what unfolds. We do know there is friction in Golden State. We do know how many insiders believe Durant has already made his mind up concerning heading to the Big Apple.

We also do now how many times the Knicks and their fans have been torched in the past.

At the very least, this specific hope-driven New York Knicks jersey is a perfect encapsulation of the current NBA moment. “Hopefully,” for New York basketball fans not housed in Brooklyn, Kevin Durant chooses Manhattan.
