This is peak, #PEAK Stephen A. Smith right here. You couldn’t come up with a more Stephen A. video if you tried. A completely unprovoked, unwarranted rumor that he decided to start just to stir the pot. And it worked. Because here I am, knowing full well that this is a complete, utter lie, still blogging about it because it’s Knicks news.

And that’s the thing about Stephen A. No matter how absurdly made up the rumor is, he knows that it will be a story the second he says it. He’s created such a huge, provocative platform, and invokes such divisive feelings among fans, that he can literally say anything he wants. Even if it’s completely outlandish. It will get people talking. Even when Stephen A. loses, he wins. It really is remarkable to watch

As for the actual rumor… laugh out loud funny. I mean it’s clearly 100% made up in Stephen A’s mind and will never in a million years happen, I don’t think I even need to say that. But just the idea of this is completely laughable.

The idea that Fat CEO Melo could recruit a star to New York literally made me chuckle. Lamarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan, and Greg fucking Monroe, none of whom play Melo’s position, didn’t want to come here. You think Kevin Durant wants to come get his career dragged down by a fat forward who can’t move the ball? Shit, nevermind KD. Do you think ANYONE wants to come get their career dragged down by a fat forward who can’t move the ball? Get the fuck out of here. The next free agent who honestly says “I want to play with Melo” will be the first.

Hey Stephen A, here’s a pro tip. If you’re going to make up a fake rumor about free agents wanting to play in New York, nobody is going to believe it if you say Melo. At least tell us KD wants to play with the true face of the franchise.

P.S.  Let’s also just be honest here, we all know why KD wouldn’t come to New York… He doesn’t want to be the second best player on this team, just like Lamarcus. We don’t need him anyway. Right Kristaps?
