Of course ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has changed his tune on Kristaps Porzingis.

To not admit that would be sheer idiocy after such an outrageous tirade after Phil Jackson made the 20-year old Latvian the No. 4 overall pick in last Spring’s NBA Draft.

So on ESPN’s First Take with Skip Bayless Wednesday morning, Smith officially admitted how impressed he was after the 29-point performance against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night.


He still, however, isn’t off the Phil Jackson bashing, explaining that if he’s not “attracting big time free-agents to the Big Apple, he’s not doing his job.”

That’s garbage.

This is the NBA. This is the league in which bad teams always struggle to find relevancy. Tanking is the name of the game. It’s been this way for a very long time.
