Kristaps Porzingis is starting to enjoy all the perks that come with being an NBA player, including getting shipments of cool things for free.

The Knicks rookie’s latest haul is a box from the league’s official sock provider, Stance, including a pair sporting the image of Porzingis’s boss, Knicks president Phil Jackson.

The Knicks top pick was booed on draft night, but if he makes a style statement on the court with these socks, he may just force New York fans to love him, or at least learn how to spell his name.
