What would Kevin Durant look like as a Knick?
There have been some Photoshopped jersey swaps posted on social media, and now there's an illustration on a billboard near Madison Square Garden.

Durant, currently in his third season with the Golden State Warriors, has been rumored to be interested in becoming a Knick when he becomes a free agent next summer.
The Knicks reportedly have a "very good shot" at landing Durant, the nine-time All-Star and former MVP, and ESPN's Zach Lowe predicts Durant will be a Knick next season as well. Center Enes Kanter, who can also be a free agent next summer, has also said he will try to recruit Durant to New York.
Durant himself has said he's focused on the 2018-19 season and trying to lead the Warriors to their third straight NBA title, however the speculation has continued. His brother hinted at the two-time Finals MVP leaving Golden State after this season earlier this month.
The 30-year-old Durant, who has led the league in scoring four times in his career, has averaged 27.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists in five games this season. He is expected to opt out of his two-year, $61.5 million deal after this season and pursue a long-term max contract next summer.
Durant will be around to see the billboard sooner rather than later. The Knicks host the Warriors on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
