James Worthy Rumors

Lakers great James Worthy, now a team broadcaster, gave the wildest praise yet for 19-year-old Kristaps Porzingis, who will face the Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center Monday night in the Knicks’ second summer league game. After his 12-points-in-18-minutes showing against the Spurs in his Knicks debut Saturday, Worthy said on the Lakers broadcast: “He’s a freak of nature. He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. It’s a good pick for the Knicks.’’
