Tuesday marked the 21st anniversary of the seminal moment in human history: the birth of Kristaps Porzingis. It's a solemn occasion, and Kristaps deserves to be honored in whichever way you think best.
The Knicks made a confetti-laden Twitter post:

It was retweeted by teammate and good buddy Willy Hernangomez, who clearly knows what's up.
Elsewhere on the Interwebs, Tommy Beer put together a nice tribute:

In Hollywood, actress and (presumable) Porzingis fan Margot Robbie paid tribute by wearing a stunning unicorn dress to the premiere of her latest film, Suicide Squad:

Then I watched these offensive highlight videos and cried some more:
Then I took a nap, exhausted from all the crying. Then I woke up and had a chicken cheese steak.
