Kristaps Porzingis meets crying Knicks fan

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the biggest stories of the NBA season thus far has been the debut season of New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis. A 7-3, 20-year-old from Latvia, the Knicks drafted Porzingis with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, with the idea that while Porzingis was talented, it might take a few seasons for Porzingis to develop and reach his full potential.

Except nobody told Porzingis, who has been very good all season, averaging 13.6 points and 8 rebounds per game, and turning in a highlight reel worth of dunks and blocks and jumpers.

Which makes it all the more ironic to think about the reaction from the fans in the Barclays Center when Porzingis was announced as the Knicks’ draft pick. There were boos, and there were even tears, which Porzingis has been working on turning around. And now it looks like Porzingis has turned around at least one high-profile early detractor…

    Kristaps meeting a crying Knicks fan won’t give you a ring. You need to meet up with a crying Cleveland fans and play with our “king” LeBron for you to get a ring. We will also trade formidable center to Knicks Josh McRoberts and former All Star superstart Amare Stoudamire plus future 1st round picks to get them another center.

    PG: Irving
    SG: James
    SF: Porzingis
    PF: Love
    C: Thompson

    1st ring for Cleveland and 3 rings for our “king” LeBron

      Wow finally the Knicks get a player and now everyone wants to take it away from us let your king do what he does best and run to a team with a thousand all stars. KP is off limits sorry

        PREACH!!!! I pray to the GODS he does not leave us. I hope he becomes one of the few players that have stayed loyal to the Knicks. He, Carmelo, and Lopez make an AMAZING team!!

      I’m so glad you still exist, I never get tired of this shtick. Pity future hall of famer Norris Cole isn’t still in the picture

    • Josh L says:

      No… he won’t leave. Knicks drafted him because he specifically wanted to play in New York City.

    all offense, no defense. some people will never learn.

  3. Knick fans are one of the worst fans in NBA, not saying all, but most. Pretty sure if Porzingis has a slump and play like 5 bad games in a roll, those “fans” would be like “See why i was crying? cuz i knew he sucks”. Really wish Porzingis become an All Star and leave the knicks and say “The Knick fans never liked me from the start anyway” <<< That would be awesome!

    Towns is way better than porzingis btw

  5. rob says:

    honestly if I was him, I would leave the second I become a free agent.

    KRISTAPS LEAVING NEW YORK THE FIRST CHANCE HE GETS. You NY fools didn’t even accept him when he was drafted.

  7. Knicks says:

    KP wants to retire a Knick and Lopez and KP are the best defensive duo in the league

  8. MJ says:

    LBJ (in comments section) is a genius! For every news here, he makes sure he gives comment – thinks of the stupidest and most annoying thing to say, includes LBG, makes a starting five with LBJ and player in the article and clicks send. Then everyone hates him. LBJ, get a life.
