Do you forget what makes Porzingis the "unicorn" that he is? He's a shooter with real perimeter skills. He can handle the ball and drive the ball. He can run the floor and moves with fluidity. He's making cuts without the ball and coming off screens for catch and shoot jumpers. If he wasn't over 7 feet, he'd be a SF.
On top of it all, and most importantly, we see how thin KP still is. We've known since the day he was drafted that it would take him a few years to bulk up enough to really bang with all of the other mammoths of the NBA.
How is this a mystery? Why are we upset again?
How about you sit in your computer chair with your pumpkin spice Oreos and let the professionals make the decisions.
The professionals wanted to trade him to Boston and got fired for that by the dummy billionaire who treats the unicorn as he’s the new coming of Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
KP’s not even been an all star yet, and he’s already coaching defense in the media early October
He’ll get the coaching staff fired by Christmas while he will still be leaving undersized forwards blow by him.
what a bunch of horse ****.
stop with the fake news. the" professionals" got fired for being incompetent. attempting to pin it on him is just looking for another reason to bitch about with regard to him.
as for your second point, what are you even trying to say? he needs to be an all star before he starts talking defense up, before a season starts?
What I’m saying is good luck in developing a guy who didn’t show up to an exit meeting and who played EuroBasket despite legs issues without his management approval. And who speaks to the media the way he wants. He did get the president fired and is now the number one guy.
Next, he’ll run the coaches out of town, which I’m not sure it’s a bad thing, But would he play better under Blatt ?
He’s going to command $150m like Embib despite he’s not proved anything at the elite level. Porzingis, to me, has developed the same habits than Melo, and that doesn’t look good. He’s trying to sell his legacy with highlights, but his game lacks substance and IQ. At the end of the day, he doesn’t stop people, he doesn’t rebound well, he doesn’t outscore people either. In Brooklyn, he wasn’t shooting over the defender despite being 7’3 and struggled to elevate his body. Hahn was right. Minus 20 really ?? In 16 minutes ??
The other home night, when Frank was doing a better job feeding him, he was clanking wide open jumpers.
I’m just worried. He stated he’ll be an all star this year, but thus far, I don’t see it. The NBA will present a much bigger physicality to you than FIBA. I don’t see him adjusting.
