Knicks Fans Are Enraged On Twitter Over The Kristaps Porzingis Trade Rumors
The New York Knicks are doing themselves no favors in improving their status as the NBA’s biggest underachievers. The NBA’s most valuable team ($3.3 billion) is coming off a dismal 31-51 season and at times made it clear to its fanbase that they were mailing it in.
The Knicks’ one glimmer of hope for the future lies in the large hands of Kristaps Porzingis aka Porzingod aka Godzingis aka KP6. The 7’3” Lativian center averaged 18 points and 7 rebounds a game for the meddling Knicks and his unique game made him a fan favorite.
Welp, Phil Jackson is sending Knicks fans into hysterics after news broke earlier today that he isn’t ruling out the possibility of trading Porzingis for a top draft pick in this year’s NBA draft.
Markkanen is a Finnish basketball player who most recently played on the University of Arizona who SB Nation regarded as “the best shooting 7-footer college basketball has ever seen.” He averaged a hair under 16 ppg and hauled in 7 rpg en route to becoming First-Team All Pac 12 and Third Team All-American.
He’s a good player, but the NBA is a different game and Porzingis has already proven himself as one of the best young bigs on the planet. Twitter knows this, and is giving Phil Jackson hell. Here are some of the best responses to the rumors.
