His recent minor shooting slump aside, Porzingis has taken a leap forward this season. His points per game (plus-9.7), free throw attempts per game (plus-3.4) and 3-point field goal percentage (plus-5.5 percent) have all increased significantly this year. King, a Hall of Famer who recently penned a book on his life, has been impressed. “What I see most beyond scoring is his court vision. He has great vision,” King said. “And you don’t always see that in players. And when I say great court vision, he has court vision of a guard. “That’s rare to see that in a big man, particularly of his size. I don’t know if we’ve ever seen that before.”

An offensive technician, Bernard King, one of the best pure scorers in Knicks history, sees elements of Porzingis’ greatness beyond the obvious shotmaking, including court vision and passing ability that are overlooked and untapped. “I’m sitting there watching the game against Charlotte,’’ King told The Post before his Monday book-signing event at the Garden and NBA Store. “He’s hitting shots 3 feet behind the 3-point line. It’s unheard of. I’ve never seen anything like it. And he’s capable of hitting mid-range and posting up.’’
“He’s one of the all-time greats to ever play the game,’’ King said of Anthony. “But Patrick needed another superstar next to him. Carmelo never had another superstar next to him. I never had another superstar next to me. In the NBA, the last 30 years, you’re not going to win a championship unless you have at least two superstars. He did the best he could with what he had to work with.”
