Knicks Remove Controversial Season Ticket Photo With Kevin Durant and Release Statement

Kristaps Porzingis

The New York Knicks used an image of Mitchell Robinson alongside Kevin Durant in a pitch to season ticket holders to renew, but later deleted the photo to avoid the perception that there was an ulterior motive using Durant's image. That was most likely done on objective. The association caused a stir when a Knicks season-ticket holder pointed out the photo in a social media post.

"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes", the statement read. "To be clear, it was one of several rotating photos on the website". In a ideal world for Knicks fans, the lowly Eastern Conference franchise will go from the cellar to the top of the standings next season, thanks to the additions of both Durant and Irving - and maybe even current Duke Blue Devils standout Zion Williamson. The Pelicans' Anthony Davis was recently docked $50,000 after his agent made it publicly known that the all-star forward wanted to be traded, with the Lakers reported to be his preferred destination. After making himself unavailable for over a week, the two-time reigning Finals MVP launched into a tirade Wednesday, telling reporters: "I have nothing to do with the Knicks".

"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 don't know who traded Porzingis. Still, they made a curious photo choice when asking season-ticket holders to renew before a February 28 deadline.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Porzingis who met with the Knicks before being acquired by the Mavs on January 31, gave NY a short list of teams that he desired to be traded to, which included the Raptors.

Durant is in his 12th season in the National Basketball Association and one of the two best players in the world.
