Since suffering a season-ending ACL tear, Kristaps Porzingis has done everything a Knicks fan could have hoped for. The 22-year-old is busying himself with two or three therapy sessions a day, strengthening his core and upper body, and sharpening his mind. “Reading bores me, I don’t like reading,” he said in a recent interview with For The Win. “But when I do start to read, that’s when if I’m into the book and if it’s a good book then I’ll keep reading.” These are the words of a goal-oriented champion.

“I don’t want to get into Fortnite, it looks too addicting for me, so I better not try it,” he said. An unmistakable sign of focus and willpower.


Less encouraging are Porzingis’s desperate pleas for companionship after arriving in Madrid today. He posted a message on his Instagram story—first in English, then in the local tongue, with an extra smile for good measure.

Broadcasting one’s current location on social media is a popular strategy for globetrotting NBA players eager to, uh, meet fans, but the stars are rarely so earnest in their thirst. Please, Kristaps, stay hydrated.
