The fallout was multi-layered. Morris and his agent, Rich Paul, parted ways. The Spurs were reportedly pissed at the Knicks for poaching their signing. The Knicks, according to sources, felt justified because they believed the Spurs tampered with Kristaps Porzingis while he was still under contract.
In a nutshell, Porzingis knows he has endured so much agony – and his fair share of grace — over the past 20-plus months to make his head spin off his shoulders. But when the Mavs open the regular season at home on Oct. 23 against the Washington Wizards, Porzingis said he’s emotionally more than prepared to handle the task at hand. Especially since – the preseason games notwithstanding – that will be his first game of substance since he tumbled to the floor writhing in pain during that contest at New York’s Madison Square Garden against the Bucks. “I’ve thought about it already at the end of last season because I wanted to come back so bad and I wanted to play (last season),” Porzingis said. “But now we’re kind of like taking smaller steps and doing the whole preseason thing and already getting out there with not as many fans and not as crazy an atmosphere.”
Then, Porzingis’ immediate thoughts turned to what he’s painstakingly waited for – the game against the Wizards. For Porzingis it’s as if the contest against Washington is the gift that he hopes will keep on giving. “I don’t think it’ll be a big deal for me,” he said. “I think I’ll go out with my mind in the right place and just play my game. “Play my game and not over-think anything, and that’s it. And just have fun out there.”
