Porzingis rehab taking place in Spain 

Post#1 » by VirginiaKnickFan » Wed May 16, 2018 4:46 pm

Kristaps Porzingis has not been doing most of his ACL rehab in Latvia as previously thought, but secretly working in Spain with Real Madrid, according to multiple sources.

Porzingis has conducted much of his offseason rehab in Madrid at its training facility that houses its superpower basketball and soccer clubs.

Real Madrid’s basketball team is in the Final Four of the EuroLeague and features top-three lottery pick Luka Doncic and ex-Knick PG Chasson Randle. Unless the Knicks trade up from nine, Porzingis and Doncic will not be teammates in New York.

After his exit meeting, Porzingis flew to his homeland in Leipaja, Latvia but believes he’s in good hands in Spain, where he played three seasons in the Spanish League and speaks the language fluently.

“KP is doing great in Madrid,’’ said Carlon Colker, Porzingis’ performance doctor based in Greenwich, Conn. “His aggressive rehab is at a jaw-dropping rate. In conjunction, his body is already looking beastly. By September, he’ll be almost non-recognizable with his shirt off. We’re working on increasing his lean muscle mass and also training for a functionality and ruggedness to compliment his game.’’

His best buddy, Willy Hernangomez also lives in Spain and once played for Real Madrid.

“Things are moving on as expected,’’ GM Scott Perry said Tuesday at the lottery. “We’re looking forward to monitoring him throughout the summer.”

In making good use of Real Madrid’s state-of-the-art facility, Porzingis will stay in Europe most of the offseason, continuing his unorthodox marriage to the Knicks.

New Knicks coach David Fizdale said he would visit Porzingis after this week’s draft combine, but likely will see him in Latvia so he can meet his family and see his hometown Leipaja.

What's with the title to the article by the NY Post? Who cares that he is rehabbing in Spain instead of Latvia, nothing weird about that to me.

Anyway, it's nice to hear that he is bulking up. Hopefully not too much where he loses his agility.
Kporzee. Make the Knicks great again!

I don't know how much of a secret it was. He's been posting some real thirsty stuff from Madrid for a few weeks now.

there's a quota of articles that need to be written by a journalist, so most often than not you either get fluff pieces like fizdale being the greatest coach that got fired or articles like this, where kristaps is spending his offseason.
LOL Y U MAD THO?

i think it does speak of how much he trusts the organization that he doesn't have them involved in his rehab at all. not that's he wrong.
