Crying Knicks fan from NBA Draft meets Kristaps Porzingis and family
Monday January 11th, 2016

Remember the little rascal who booed Kristaps Porzingis when he was selected by the Knicks in the 2015 NBA draft? Well, apparently Porzingis is willing to put that whole ordeal in the past.

Before the Knicks took on the Bucks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Porzingis and the crying Knicks fan met up on the court and took a selfie.

The kid didn’t stop there. He met the rest of Porzingis’s family.


With KP's older brother who made our half court meeting possible. Thank you

Kristaps is a stand-up guy for this. Clearly, this kid would have chipped in whatever he had saved up in his piggy bank to have this guy traded out of New York back in June. No. 1 fan, though? Nah. This kid will never be his No. 1 fan. Get outta here with that nonsense.

Maybe Porzingis is secretly still mad. Look at this putback dunk.

You know what they say. Boo me once, shame on you. Boo me—you can’t get booed again.
