New York Knicks fans are doing their part to recruit Kyrie Irving.
During Friday night’s game between the Boston Celtics and Knicks at Madison Square Garden, a “We Want Kyrie” chant broke out.

Irving can opt out of his current deal to become a free agent after the season. Though he said before the season that he would re-sign with Boston, there are doubts about whether he will stick to his word.
The Knicks meanwhile have paved the way to potentially add two players on max contracts this summer. Their master plan reportedly is to add Kevin Durant, Irving, and a top draft pick.
