New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis is feeling particularly lonely in Madrid. The unicorn is using Instagram to find some friends, with an extra smile attached to the message.

Kristaps Porzingis isn’t known for being bashful on social media. He’s made numerous headlines for his interactions with Instagram models–whether they were positive or negative–and according to Deadspin’s Giri Nathan the unicorn as at it again.

The 22-year-old took to Instagram again; this time it’s because he was looking for a friend. Per Deadspin, Porzingis posted two messages on his Instagram story saying he was looking for friends in Madrid. One in English, and one in Spanish.


The 7-footer attached a smile onto the message for good measure. Speculate all you want about what he means by “looking for friends,” but Porzingis is never dull. Not on the court or off.

He is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL that will likely keep him out for a majority of the 2018-19 season. He’s expected to meet with new head coach David Fizdale during the offseason. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Fiz is flying to Latvia to meet with his new star.

It’s been a busy offseason already for the face of the New York Knicks. It’s only about to get busier.
