Watch New York Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis knock down this ridiculous shot from behind the backboard while turning around before it goes in.

Did he really just do that? No. He couldn’t have, right?

Well, as you can clearly see – or not so clearly based on your definition – you witnessed New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis sink that shot from behind the backboard.


But the rookie sensation from Latvia didn’t just knock down the shot. He did it in style.

KP turns around while the ball was in mid-air, knowing it was destined to go through the hoop (video above).

On Thursday, Knicks center Kevin Seraphin captured the rook knocking down the legendary practice shot.

We knew the kid could send them home off an offensive rebound like the best of them, but now we also know he can knock them down from behind the backboard.

Damn KP.
