Kristaps Porzingis used to have an awesome hairstyle

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — To be clear, I don’t want the headline of this article to suggest that Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis doesn’t have an awesome hairstyle today, with his spiky blonde locks. I’m just saying that once upon a time, as a child growing up in Latvia, Porzingis had some sweet, sweet cornrows.

This came to light because of this video, which is about Porzingis’ history, and includes some childhood photos. And it turns out, for about three years, Porzingis went with cornrows…

Armed with this knowledge, today the Knicks asked other players about Porzingis’s departed braids, and got some great reactions…

But guess who got the last laugh? When asked about his hairstyle today by reporters, Porzingis had some pretty solid reasoning behind it…
