New York Knicks star big man Kristaps Porzingis is doing something that has not been done by someone his age since Shaquille O’Neal.
According to Basketball-Reference, Porzingis is the youngest player to average at least 25 points and two blocks per game since O’Neal in 1995.
The difference is that Porzingis also brings a threat as an outside shooter. Before this year, no other player (regardless of age) had ever accomplished the aforementioned feat while also averaging more than 0.6 three-pointers per game.
Porzingis is the only player to have multiple appearances with four three-pointers and three blocks in the same game.
