Kristaps Porzingis, a Baltic giraffe who plays for the Knicks, is already cool and fun, which is a welcome surprise after a summer where he was tabbed as quite the project. Turns out being the size of telecommunications infrastructure, reasonably agile, and in possession of a shooting stroke are all skills that don’t take too much honing. Speaking of which, this jam would look much more spectacular if its jammer weren’t so tall. It’s a good jam!

Earlier in the game, Jabari Parker also did a cool dunk over Lance Thomas.


The Knicks lost 99-92, and are now 2-4.

This has been 500 Days of Kristaps.
