It’s time for Kristaps Porzingis to humble himself
Marc Stein of the New York Times did a great job this week of shining some more light of the ins and outs of the Kristaps Porzingis trade as it pertains to how and why the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks were able to get a deal done so quickly.
Now we have a little more insight into Porzingis as a person from former Knicks’ executive Clarence Gaines, who worked under Phil Jackson. He certainly hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about the team and was asked on Twitter to give his thoughts on Porzingis being traded.
As you can see in the tweet above, Gaints makes it sound like Porzingis is full of himself and didn’t treat the Knicks very well. Just look at what he wrote for the two thoughts he has about KP.
I would even suggest that Janis, KP’s brother, is also full himself. Both guys clearly wanted to Knicks worship the ground they walked on and they were unwilling to do so and I don’t blame them at all.
Now that Porzingis is in Dallas, what did Mavs’ head coach Rick Carlisle do, he kissed up to Janis, which is exactly what he wanted the Knicks to do.
Porzingis is a talented player, but he hasn’t proven anything yet as an NBA player and he needs to realize that he needs to be more humble. Especially for a guy with injury concerns that’s 7-foot-3.
