For the past few weeks we’ve been hearing the rumblings over Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant meeting each other to discuss the possible of playing on the same team.
According Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher Kyrie is putting pressure on KD to join him in Brooklyn.

Durant and Irving, league sources say, have met twice in recent weeks to discuss their desire to continue their careers on the same team, an idea forged while playing together on the U.S. national team. The first meeting took place in the Bay Area while Durant nursed a strained right calf; the second occurred in New York shortly after Durant had surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Irving, meanwhile, also recently purchased a new home in South Orange, New Jersey, but league sources say he is pressing Durant to join him with the Nets and is trying to recruit Jordan as well. Durant did have his Achilles repaired by a Nets team physician, Dr. Martin O’Malley, but the New York Post’s Mark Fischer quoted one of O’Malley’s medical colleagues warning not to read too much into that.
This afternoon, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who calls himself a Knicks superfan, took to Twitter to deliver a somber message to Knicks fans by reporting that Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to the Nets was “pretty much done”.
Some Knicks fans don’t believe Stephen A.’s report.
While others have accepted the writing on the wall.
As of right now the Brooklyn Nets are favorites to land KD but we won’t know until Sunday where he decides to go.
