New Knicks starting center DeAndre Jordan has mastered the art of rebounding, blocking shots and deadpan.
“I hate Kevin Durant,” Jordan said late Saturday night. “I just don’t like him. Terrible guy.’’
After the Knicks’ 16th straight loss, Jordan was responding to a question about his well-known relationship with Durant. When The Post asked him a few days before, Jordan let out a loud locker-room cackle.
It’s no secret he once tried recruiting Durant to the Clippers back in 2016-17. Knicks president Steve Mills was well aware of his Durant friendship when he obtained him in the Kristaps Porzingis blockbuster 11 days ago.
Is it a coincidence the Knicks have already told Jordan they want him to be part of the future despite being on the last year of a one-year contract?
When asked if Durant would be a good fit in New York, Jordan said, haltingly, “I mean, he won two championships with the Warriors so I mean…” He stopped and nodded.
