New York Knicks’ legend Bernard King has been very impressed by Kristaps Porzingis.
New York Knicks’ great Bernard King had some great things to say about current star Kristaps Porzingis
“He’s been really outstanding,” King said, via Ian Begley of ESPN. “I’ve never seen a 7-foot-3 guy that can hit 3-point shots the way he does. Also, he has a tremendous understanding of basketball and where his placement of his body is on the court in terms of positioning. And how to get position.”
I’m certainly amazed at how well Prozingis moves despite the fact that he’s 7-foot-3. He runs the length of the floor with the best of them, while being able to hit three-pointers, block shots and shut down guys like Blake Griffin on defense.
The best thing the Knicks did this past offseason was trade Carmelo Anthony, because it enabled Porzingis to blossom even more and become the premiere player they need him to become.
With Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott in exchange for Anthony, the Knicks are a stronger and more dangerous team.
Kanter has been great at center when it comes to rebounding and McDermott has been a sharp-shooting three-point assassin for New York.
Its been refreshing to watch how well Porzingis works with his teammates like Kanter and McDermott.
