Like this one who was in attendance in Game 4 Monday night. With the Rockets leading by double-digits midway through the third period, he yelled “New York Knicks!” as he tried to catch the attention of Warriors forward Kevin Durant.

Of course, this fan is referring to the rumors that Kevin Durant will be joining the Knicks this summer. The reigning Finals MVP is set to become a free agent, and speculations around the league say that no matter what the outcome of the Warriors' season is, KD won't be returning to the team next season.
The Knicks have enough cap space to sign Durant and another top-tier talent this summer, and they reportedly would like to pair KD with Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving who is set to become a free agent this summer as well.
However, Durant doesn't care about what will happen in his free agency at the moment. Right now, his focus is on helping the Warriors win their third straight title, and based on how well he's playing in these playoffs, he has no plans of thinking about his next destination just yet.
The Warriors are ten wins away from capturing the elusive three-peat, and once they do hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy this June, Durant will be free of any obligations to the team and can do whatever he wants with his career.
