The best international player in the history of each franchise

Kristaps Porzingis, Latvia

Along with Antetokounmpo, another current player with the potential to eventually reach the Nowitzki/Olajuwon stratosphere – provided he returns to form following the torn ACL that ended his 2017-18 campaign – is New York Knicks freakazoid Kristaps Porzingis.

Standing tall at 7-foot-3, the Latvian big man can not only protect the rim with the best of them, he can also knock down three-pointers like a shooting guard.

Porzingis is the only player in NBA history to average at least 2.0 blocks and 1.5 triples for their career, and it’s hard to envision anyone else who could eventually join him in the exclusive club.

There’s a reason people call him the Unicorn.
