New York Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina was spotted at the Yankees-Red Sox game, donning Yankees attire.
With the 11th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks selected point guard Frank Ntilikina out of France. Despite the culture shock, he has made himself at home in New York.
Most recently, Ntilikina was spotted at the New York Yankees home game, taking a photo with none other than Aaron Judge.
It’s no surprise that the Frenchmen chose the Yankees, a franchise that has won 27 World Series to date.
Out of all the players, Ntilikina could have posed with, he chose Aaron Judge, the most popular Yankee this season.
Judge is having a breakout sophomore year (technically still a rookie as per MLB rules) and is breaking records left and right. If it’s any precedent for how good the Knicks rookie will be, New York fans should be very excited.
Frank Ntilikina and the New York Knicks will start the season on Oct. 19, in Oklahoma against the Thunder.
