New York Knicks: Frank Ntilikina Shows Off Nike Uniforms

New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina showed off the team’s new Nike uniforms during a photo shoot on Friday.

Injuries prevented Frank Ntilikina from showing off his game in the NBA Summer League last month. New York Knicks fans haven’t been able to get a look at him on the court, but they can check their future point guard out in the team’s new jerseys.

The Knicks official Twitter account posted pictures on Friday from Ntilikina’s rookie photo shoot. He was showcasing the uniforms; which were made by Nike.

Ntilikina isn’t used to the spotlight yet. He was invisible during the NBA draft process due to his European team being the playoffs.

Playing in New York will be a tremendous adjustment for the youngster. He just turned 19 on July 28, so he must have a lot of growing up to do.

This is only one of the many types of media events that Frank Ntilikina should expect to face during his time in New York. Fortunately, he should have the 7-foot-3 Kristaps Porzingis to show him the ropes.

The unicorn went through all this and more when he was a rookie. The expectations were even higher for Porzingis. They have a lot in common; both coming over to the league with prior professional experience and being drafted as teenagers.
