Kristaps Porzingis had cornrows

Wednesday October 21st, 2015

Photos surfaced Wednesday in a YouTube spot featuring an interview with Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis’s first coach back in his native Latvia. These photos feature young Kristaps with cornrows, and a headband, and generally mugging for every photo. Greatness seeps out of his pores.

Mind blown, no doubt. See above. See below. There are just not good words to express this. Except maybe “Worldstar.”

But also watch the video, which is heartwarming, really.

The Knicks are already off to a hot start.
