New York Knicks phenom Kristaps Porzingis is once again taking a shot at Croatian model Ines Nikic…and getting blocked.

New York Knicks phenom Kristaps Porzingis know how to score on the court. Off the court? Well, he isn’t getting so lucky.

Three months ago, Porzingis direct messaged Croatian model Ines Nikic on Instagram in a pathetic attempt at seduction. He stopped pursuing her in May when he found out that she was only 17.

Now that Nikic has hit the magical age of 18, the Knicks phenom is pulling out all the stops to get her attention once again.

Per Jaclyn Hendricks of the New York Post, “Why does it matters to you that much,” Nikic asked the Knicks star after he requested that she follow him.

He replied by saying “Its a matter of life or death. ” Even after she agreed to follow him on the ‘gram, Porzingis didn’t quite get the hint, responding with “I guess you want me to die huh?”

Nikic has yet to follow the Knicks star on Instagram. However, she seems to be having the time of her life trolling the one hot talent on the Knicks.

She even posted a pic of her kissing a man and captioned the pic, “Kristaps who? Are you sleeping peacefully, Kristaps Porzingis?”

@kporzee who?? Spavaš li mirno Porzingis Kristapsu?

Now that is cold. Porzingis, you deserve far better than an 18-year-old jerking you around. Know your worth!

However, this isn’t the first time that Porzingis has tried to snag a woman while hiding behind the internet. In February, he tried to get with model Abigail Ratchford on Instagram and, much like now, that didn’t work out so well.

KP take the hint, she doesn’t want you. Go find someone else to try to date. But don’t look for someone online because right now you’re 0-for-2 from the field.
