New York Knicks‘ Kristaps Porzingis did a Q&A with about some subjects including Carmelo Anthony and going to the playoffs.

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis has been on a tear to start the season. He has five 30 point games in the first seven. New York has managed a surprising 3-4 record on the back of his heroic efforts.

Porzingis is the man now. Part of being the man for the Knicks entails doing questions and answers with publications like The latest issue for KP involved him talking about former teammate Carmelo Anthony.

What’s life like without his old teammate?

Via Ian Begley of ESPN New York:

It’s obviously different, you know. He was the main guy and he was the leader of the team. It’s much different. For me, obviously wanted him to stay around and to keep learning from him, but I’m happy for him that he took on a new challenge to go to OKC and I’ve been staying in contact with him and he’s saying he’s happy. It’s a different environment there, and for him I think it’s a good step in his career.

Does he think this team can make the playoffs?

I believe so. I said it before the season started and now I’m seeing that just by being hungry out there on the floor, you can win games. We just have to keep playing the same way, keep practicing, keep playing with the same intensity and same hunger and I believe we’re a playoff team.
