Kyrie Irving is once again trolling the Knicks. But, this time, he didn't have to say anything.
At the corner of Madison Square Garden is a giant billboard displaying a Nike ad with Irving's face on it. The text next to him reads, "In my heart, I knew I always wanted to play at home."
Of course, this one isn't on Irving directly, but this isn't the first time a Nets billboard took a shot at the Knicks. Back in 2010, Jay-Z and Mikhail Prokhorov had a billboard outside MSG that read "the blueprint for greatness," and it really ticked off the Knicks.
Billboards also haven't worked out in the Knicks' favor, with the one of Kevin Durant created by Knicks fans to court him to New York this offseason backfiring when he signed in Brooklyn along with Irving.
Irving, though, hasn't held back when talking about how New York is becoming a Nets town in his eyes.

Also, during a promotional event in the city, Irving said "we're going to take over the whole entire city" when talking about the Nets.
Irving may have downplayed the Knicks-Nets rivalry, but with yet another instance in which Brooklyn is coming to Knicks territory, it certainly continues to heat up in the Big Apple.
