After poking fun at the Rockets' James Harden, Opera Man (Adam Sandler on Saturday Night Live) made an impassioned plea for pending free agent Kevin Durant to sign with the Knicks.
"Just wait till Durant comes to the Knicks" Opera Man sang. "Please! Please, Kevin. And bring Kyrie."

Sandler's run at SNL lasted from 1991 to 1995, a stretch where the Knicks thrived under Pat Riley -- making the Eastern Conference Finals in 1992-93 and the NBA Finals in 1993-94.
Riley left the Knicks after the 1995 season, while Sandler was fired from SNL after the 1995 season.
Now, while Guy Fieri pleads for Durant to stay with the Warriors, Opera Man pleads for him to leave for the Knicks.
