Kristaps Porzingis’s Twitter post about the Clippers was the result of hacking, B!

Unlike the people in charge of the Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis knows how to use media to put out public relations fires, rather than pour jet fuel on them. Following Saturday night’s bizarre, quickly-deleted post about the Clippers, multiple reporters quoted the Porzingis camp as saying that the Tweet was the result of Kurt Rambis’s favorite alibi for liking pics of girls masturbating: HACKING!

Later, the kid himself took to Twitter:

Hmm...that seems like the kind of canned response I’d expect from a PR team—not the Knicks’ PR team, mind you, but a competent PR team. Can’t you give us something a little more authentic.

There it is! Kristaps was 100%, deadass hacked. The proof is right there, B!

Oh, but the plot thickens, as there was also an Instagram model (and noted Porzingis fan) involved, per Marc Berman:

Adding intrigue is the model Abigail Ratchford followed suit by tweeting “Clippers’’ in reaction — before hers, too, was deleted. She has been linked as a friend of Porzingis’.

Um...yeah...”linked as a friend.”

So what have we learned from this incident? Several members of the Knicks use the Internet, for a variety of purposes.
