New York Knicks Used Kevin Durant In Season Ticket Promotional Package

Kristaps Porzingis

The Knicks have removed a photo of Kevin Durant from a season ticket promotion.

The Knicks, in an advertisement asking season ticket holders to renew their tickets, used a picture of Durant guarding rookie forward Mitchell Robinson this week.

"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took precaution of taking the photo down", the Knicks said in a statement, via Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

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.

Angel di Maria reveals what went wrong for him at Manchester United
The move never materialised with the Parisians experiencing a managerial change but Fellaini has said Thomas Tuchel's arrival at the Parc Des Princes was not the reason he stayed in Manchester. "I sent a message to Edi after the Bordeaux match".

You know, the same Kevin Durant who happens to play for the Golden State Warriors, but who also has been widely reported to be a top target for the Knicks in free agency this offseason.

It does not technically break any league rules to feature an opposing player in a season-ticket pitch, but the Durant case is unique and will likely be scrutinized by those watching his highly anticipated free agency. In a flawless 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.

"As a player, knowing I have to talk to media, if I get an opportunity to talk to media, I want to give the fans my perspective on the game, not about business", Durant told Mike Greenberg on Get Up. "That's all I'm saying".

The Knicks have been one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association this season and will enter their matchup Monday against the Cavaliers with a 10-45 record.
