New York Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis Shows Off Soccer Skills With NYCFC (Video)

Kristaps Porzingis, sophomore to be for the New York Knicks, showed off his soccer skills with NYCFC at Yankee Stadium recently.

Just face facts already: Kristaps Porzingis is a stud athlete

Obviously, we already knew this. Anybody who can as much as sniff the heights of the National Basketball Association has to be dripping with athletic ability.

KP, though, does it despite what should be his awkward 7’3” frame.

And hailing from Latvia, it’s automatic to realize basketball wasn’t his only sport growing up. The more natural choice of sport in that country is soccer.

Check out the Vine above. Porzingis attended Friday night’s MLS match between the Chicago Fire and New York City FC at Yankee Stadium. Prior to things getting underway, KP showcased some of his soccer/dribbling skills.

Not bad for a 7’3” dude who shoots hoops.

As far as the game was concerned, NYCFC trounced Chicago by the final of 4-1 in furthering their phenomenal 2016 playoff season.
