If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it 1,000 times: Kristaps Porzingis is for the children. He demonstrated it yet again during his ProCamp:
Kristaps showed the youth of New York what’s up by dominating them on the hardwood. Oh yeah, he hit those little boogers with the ball fake before dropping a sweet behind-the-back dish to the open shooter.
Watching Kristaps play against 8-year-olds. He's repeatedly hitting folks w the Jordan ball fake. pic.twitter.com/wCaH0XKShQ— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) September 17, 2016
He also displayed mercy by treading carefully over the youngsters as he readied to dunk on them.
DON’T BRING THE BALL DOWN AFTER GRABBING THE OFFENSIVE REBOUND!!! Have you learned nothing this summer?
Speaking of the offseason, Kristaps spoke to reporters about his rigorous weight-gaining program.
Porzingis says he weighs 238 now. He was 237 pounds at the end of training camp last year.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) September 17, 2016
To be fair, 1 Kristaps pound = 50 Earth pounds.
Porzingis says repeatedly that he doesn't mind where he fits within the pecking order this season, w Rose being added. Simply wants to win.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) September 17, 2016
Very generous of him, but Kristaps was better than Rose last season and will be better than Rose this season so we (hopefully) won’t see a change in the pecking order.
In a few weeks we’ll be watching our Unicorn dunking over adults. Get hyped.
