Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis says girls like his height
Monday October 26th, 2015

For someone who just moved to the States, Kristaps Porzingis has a pretty firm grasp on American pop culture. That doesn’t mean he’s not prone to making some hilarious mistakes.

In an interview with DuJour Magazine, Porzingis once again delivered some uproarious quotes. Things started off mellow, with the No. 4 pick in the 2015 NBA draft discussing his relocation to New York. Then, he discussed the women of America.

“Some girls are intimidated by my height, obviously,” he said. “But a lot of girls do like it, so that’s cool.”

If girls chat with Kristaps because of his height, they will continue their conversation because of hilarious pop culture mixups.

In a short five-question quiz, Porzingis mixed up Tom Brady and Tom Cruise, said that Miley Cyrus wrote “Born in the U.S.A.,” and guessed that jaywalking was “like a dance, or something.”

You can watch the video feature on Porzingis at DuJour.com. It’s worth your time.
