New York Knicks fans react to drafting Kristaps Porzingis
Friday June 26th, 2015

Leading up to Thursday’s NBA draft, the basketball world was preparing for Knicks fans’ reactions to a possible Kristaps Porzingis pick.

Porzingis, a 19-year-old forward from Latvia, is a talented offensive player who scouts believe might need two or three years of developing before he becomes a regular contributor for the Knicks.

Indeed, after Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and Jahlil Okafor went off the board in the first three picks, the Knicks nabbed Porzingis.

And while several Knicks fans reacted as expected, this poor young fan seemed to take the selection especially hard. Cheer up, kid! It’s just the first round.
