Did we previously mention that Kristaps Porzingis has a chance to be a once in a generation basketball figure?
Yes? Good, because we mean it.
At 7’3” and 220 lbs., this 20-year old phenom is dripping wet with basketball talent from head-to-toe. He runs like the fastest gazelle in the pack and once strong enough, will dominate on every area of the court.
Moreover, his complete raw physical abilities pale in comparison to what he is off the court. It’s amazing to see how the kid just “gets it.” He’s a coaches dream who’ll never say the wrong thing and will always tip his hat towards the team first.
The drafting of KP in the No. 4 hole last spring was the very first cornerstone aspect to Phil Jackson’s regime as boss of the Knickerbockers. This decision means everything now because when stars look for their next team in free agency, who their running-mate would be is priority number one.
Any superstar would love to play with Porzingis. There couldn’t possibly be any negatives.
KP is a four-man at heart, but can play a ton of five in this NBA. Kevin Durant is a three-man at heart, but can play the four. Those two together would be scary beyond belief. Inside, outside – the duo would create nightmare matchup problems for a decade.
Durant, 27, would have a legendary running mate for the rest of his career. That is, if, he chose to come to New York City.
