Some kids gave Kristaps Porzingis a poster taller than he is

Monday February 29th, 2016

Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzinigis is enormous, but the gift some young Latvian fans gave him is even bigger. 

Porzingis, as he has done in the past, invited some Latvian kids to the game, this time from the Latvian School of New Jersey and Yonkers Latvian School. The kids brought with them a poster with messages on either side.

Photographic evidence indicates that the poster is taller than KP, but it’s tough to tell for certain. Luckily, Porzingis told’s Kenny Ducey after the game, “Yeah, it was taller than me.”
