Kristaps Porzingis is the true meaning of Thanksgiving

Knicks all over the world are celebrating Kristaps today.

Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness, a celebration of family. On this most auspicious of days, let us stop and take a moment to call to mind those who are most important to us.


You were thinking about Kristaps Porzingis just now, weren't you?

The holiday of Thanksgiving -- like Christmas, Hanukkah, Arbor Day and 4/20 -- is about more than eating fancy meals topped with dressings filled with various herbs and spices. It is an opportunity for us to show Kristaps (and maybe some other people, I guess) just how much we care.

Take Carmelo Anthony, for instance. He showed his appreciation for Kristaps Wednesday night in Orlando, when he moved quickly to protect the lanky Latvian from the dickish advances of noted scumbag and puppy-kicker Jason Smith:

Christmas has the Grinch; Thanksgiving has Jason Smith.

Even extended members of the Knicks family are taking time out to show Kristaps just how much they care. Real Madrid center and stashed New York draft pick Willy Hernangomez took to Twitter earlier to share Kristaps vines:

What a beautiful sentiment! Knicks all over the world are thinking of Kristaps today. Instead of turning on a football game this afternoon like some damned degenerate, you too should share Kristaps highlights with your loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Keep on Zinging!
