NYK Power Forward: 7’3, 240 lbs; 3rd year, Latvia 

NBA Role: versatile power forward • Future Top DOG

Booed on draft night and labeled a project by some idio- er, experts, Kristaps Porzingis proved way ahead of the curve during year 1, is looking to break into stardom; highly skilled prospect w/ a refined arsenal offensively – Porzingis can get it done both inside & out – very mobile, has tight footwork (for step backs, runners, shimmy turnarounds) & quickness considering he’s a legitimate 7’3; extremely fluid movements, similar to a small forward; solid rebounder whose best skill (as a boarder) is flying in for nasty put back flushes (over the top!); decent shot-blocker, needs to add strength to handle larger opponents on the block; will become a true cult figure in NYC before too long – how soon til he challenges Melo‘s throne as NY’s #1 option?*
