Are you ready for some Kristaps Porzingis?
The Unicorn won’t take the court for another few hours, but until then you can marvel at his new “Crazy Explosive” shoes, a part of his freshly-signed partnership with adidas:

That’s right, folks: Kristaps is officially an adidas man. Let’s hope the company wastes no time in removing James Harden’s bridge troll mug from their commercials. He’s headlining the “Crazy Explosive” line along with Andrew Wiggins, which seems unfair given that Porzingis is a much better player.
Nick DePaula at NiceKicks has the inside scoop (and plenty of pictures):
Each pair features a variety of Knicks hues, along with a custom “KP6” script wordmark on the right tongue tab. Along the insoles, you’ll notice some added personal details, as the right sockliner features a depiction of Latvia and its flag, with “KP-6” text below. On the left insole, the brand has incorporated the Coat of Arms of the city of Liepaja, his hometown.
Latvian pride! Jordan Crawford is a fan:

Porzingis’s seven-year deal is for both footwear and apparel, and will pay him $3 to $6 million annually, depending on incentives.
Make sure to pay close attention to Kristaps’s feet tonight.
