People are hyped that Kristaps Porzingis won the skills challenge
Kristaps Porzingis, who I will not refer to as a damn unicorn, won the All-Star skills competition on Saturday night, which means he successfully dribbled around some obstacles, made a pass, made a layup and made a three-pointer in more effective fashion than some other guys.
The Knicks forward is the tallest player in the NBA, though, so that’s cool. People were excited for him. He’s a good kid. We love Kristaps over here.
He beat Nikola Jokic in a final that had some European flavor, for sure. BLAME AAU BASKETBALL FOR THE DISSOLUTION OF OUR AMERICAN CHILDREN'S ABILITIES TO DRIBBLE AND STUFF.
A 7'3" #TacoBellSkills Challenge winner?

Kristaps just re-affirmed the United States' commitment to NATO.
