Last weekend at a basketball camp in Latvia attended by about 250 children, one youngster asked Porzingis in his native tongue why he wouldn’t abandon New York, and Porzingis sounded as if he’s committed for the long haul. According to an English translation obtained by The Post, Porzingis answered: “I feel that it is the best place to win. And if you win in New York, you are king. For the last two years, I have had so many positive emotions here that this is where I want to stay and that this is where I want to win.”
Storyline: Kristaps Porzingis Trade?
The Knicks’ young star took to Twitter to like a post that showed an edited image of Irving in a New York jersey, with the caption, “All that matters. Bring him back home to play with Porzingis.” That post was replying to a tweet in which ESPN’s Ian Begley reported that New York “would consider trading Carmelo Anthony and future first rounders” for the Cleveland point guard.
The Portland Trail Blazers’ starting shooting guard will participate in NBA Africa Game 2017, the second exhibition matchup sponsored by the NBA in Johannesburg, South Africa. The game, scheduled for Aug. 5 at the Ticketpro Dome, will feature Team Africa vs. Team World in a matchup that will include players from across the NBA. McCollum will play on Team World, which also will include DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry, Kristaps Porzingis and captains Dirk Nowitzki and Kemba Walker, among others. They will face a team comprised of NBA players who are first-and second-generation Africans, including Luol Deng, Thabo Sefolosha, Serge Ibaka and Victor Oladipo.
