Good morning, you beautiful people. BEHOLD!
At 7:12 AM EST Kristaps Porzingis dropped the greatest photo in the history of Instagram. Yes, there is the Unicorn, shooting under the watchful eye of the greatest stretch big man in NBA history, Dirk Nowitzki.
Dirk. Kristaps. Dirk and Kristaps. Dirkstaps Kristitzki. Kirk Nowingis.
The two sharpshooting Euro bigs are currently in South Africa for Saturday’s 2017 NBA Africa Game, where they will play together on the World Team.
This is obviously a huge deal for young Kristaps, as he has waited two years to work out with Nowitzki. The two tried to get together last offseason, but their schedules never quite aligned. As soon as the Africa Game rosters were announced and we saw their names together, Knicks fans dared to dream. Could it really happen, at long last?
It’s happening, folks. I just so happened to be watching this update from @DawkinsMTA when the photo dropped.
Now I’m ready to run through a wall. LET’S GOOOOOOOOOO!
