Watch: Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis hits trick shot

Sunday August 9th, 2015

New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis is slowly convincing the fans who booed him on draft night he has plenty of skills on the court.

After an athletic showing at summer league in Las Vegas, Porzingis reached into his bag of tricks while at the NBA rookie photo shoot. 

In the midst of all the photo stations, Porzingis decided to have some fun. Setting up behind one of the lighting curtains, Porzingis manages to bank in a shot without being able to look at the hoop. 

Porzingis himself doesn't even appear in the video until after the shot goes in. You can check it out for yourself here:
