Before the NBA free agency period even started, New York Knicks fans' lofty offseason hopes were crushed when the league's most reliable insider Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news a short while ago that Kevin DurantKyrie Irving, and DeAndre Jordan were going to sign with the Brooklyn Nets

After hyping up the possibility of Durant and Irving teaming up for months, the Knicks and their $71 million in cap space will have nothing big to show for all their efforts, and people couldn't contain themselves from dragging their fan base while they were already down. 

It's hard out here for Knicks fans. The team even sent out a statement addressing disappointed fans.
