After not so popular pick of the Knicks Kristaps Porzingis scored 12 points in 18 minutes in his summer league debut, Lakers legend James Worthy had some pretty high praise for the 19 year old.
“He’s a freak of nature. He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. It’s a good pick for the Knicks.’’
On Monday, that combo player played against the Lakers and finished with 9 points and 5 fouls in 18 minutes.
“He doesn’t have Bargnani-itis,’’ one league scout said. “He takes elbows from Randle and doesn’t back down.”
I guess that’s good to know the Dirk/Durant threat isn’t a threat to become the next Bargnani.
