Kristaps Porzingis listens to Future before playing basketball

Wednesday November 25th, 2015

We may finally know what is behind Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis’s hot start.

On Tuesday, Porzingis joined The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio in New York, and revealed what he’d be listening to before the Knicks played the Magic on Wednesday.

“Future,” he said. “A little bit of Drake...but Future.”

Though he said he’d prefer to go by “KP,” I think this certainly bumps “Worldstar” up the Porzingis nickname rankings.

Oh, and remember this kid, who took a crying selfie on draft night?


“I heard that he already has my jersey,” he said in the interview.

What a time to be alive.
