Now that New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis is the talk of the Big Apple, he discusses talking trash among other topics with Vice Sports.

By Robby Sabo

Only 12 games into what the entire city hopes is a future tremendous NBA career and he’s already the talk of the town. It’s tough to ignore the guy. Put-back dunks, (almost) buzzer beating shots, and 29-point performances will get your on SportsCenter quickly.

We’re of course discussing the Latvian sensation himself, Kristaps Porzingis.

The 20-year old seems so talented and wise beyond his years that many are already calling him the “steal of the draft.” He’s been so good that New York Knicks fans suddenly have an entirely new lease on life. Instead of negative thoughts running rampant while walking into Madison Square Garden, fans are giddy at the thought of another Porzingis moment.


Vice Sports understands this as well. That’s why they took the time to ride-along with the Knicks big man to discuss topics such as cornrows and trash talking (video above).
