Kristaps Porzingis has worked on several aspects of his game this summer, including his play in the post — a pivotal aspect of the New York Knicks’ triangle offense. “Everybody wants to see me play better in the post, that’s one thing that’s going to help us in the triangle so I’m adding moves to my post game,” he said in an interview with Anthony Donahue on The Stashed’s “33rd and 7th” podcast. “I’m really working on staying low [on drives]. I’m working on my strength, especially my legs. That’s going to help me defensively as well.”

Porzingis and Hernangomez have remained close friends. “When I talked to Kristaps about the difference between the ACB and NBA, he told me the physical part is the biggest and the speed of the game,” Hernangomez said. “I try to work on my body and physical condition. I know I have to prove a lot of things — one of them is my physical ability. “For me, it’s perfect playing with Kristaps again. It will be more easy feeling part of the team. He’ll help me for sure. With Kristaps, I can feel confident on the court.’’
NYK guard Langston Galloway played pick-up ball with Kristaps and a bunch of other Knicks shortly after the Latvian was drafted and says he knew what was up as soon as the group got together early in the summer. “He ran off like 10 [points] straight, and I was like, ‘This is for real, this ain’t no joke,’” Galloway says before a recent Knicks game. “Soon as he got drafted, we knew he was gonna be a baller. He just made it look easy.” Cleanthony Early, standing at his locker a few feet away from Galloway, chuckles as he listens to his teammate speak. “For real,” he says with a nod.

“I have my own goals and what I want to achieve, but for me, No. 1 is always team,” Kristaps says back at the training facility. “We want to do something special here in the future. We want to win a Championship here. That’s the No. 1 goal.” It’s obviously a lofty goal, one that’ll take plenty of time and require all sorts of breaks in the right direction. Who knows, though—maybe Kristaps Porzingis will be the guy to one day end the long-time suffering of Knicks fans with a Championship run and a celebratory parade down Broadway.

It’s a basketball brotherhood troika. Latvian-born NBA star player Kristaps Porzingis just scored a new pad in Midtown West. The 7-foot-3-inch player has leased a corner penthouse that was asking $8,000 a month at Sky, the mammoth rental tower at 605 W. 42nd St. He also nabbed another two high-floor units for his two brothers, Martins and Janis, because “they are close and like to be near each other,” a source said.

While Kristaps Porzingis admitted to sliding into the DMs, Devin Booker preferred taking the high road of sorts saying, “Maybe, maybe. I’m not going to tell on myself.” Alexis also questioned them about everyone’s favorite app at the moment, Pokémon Go, to see if they’re in on the craze. “Yes, a lot,” Jordan Clarkson said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see me running out here on the red carpet after a while, chasing Pokémon.” Clearly, whether you’re out in these streets or on the red carpet, when you gotta catch ’em all, it means you don’t take a single day off.
