Kristaps Porzingis, who returned to the lineup after lacking two video games with a balky ankle this week, seems again at full power each on and off the courtroom.
TMZ caught up with the 22-yr-previous Latvian sensation out in town after he logged 34 minutes and dropped 18 factors on the Grizzlies Wednesday. Porzingis was clearly snug outdoors the Marquee nightclub on tenth Ave. with a feminine pal on his arm and hordes of adoring followers giving him excessive-fives.
Whereas the Knicks’ star has some work to do earlier than he’s counted among the many likes of New York’s hardest partying athletes, it seems he’s already a real man of the individuals. The large man’s social life might not but be on par with nightlife legends like Derek Jeter, Joe Namath and Mickey Mantle, however identical to these nocturnal All-Stars, Porzingas is clearly king of the hill, prime of the heap.
And whereas some athletes might attempt to keep away from the limelight and might be standoffish with followers on the road, particularly outdoors a nightclub, the second-yr Porzingis is clearly having fun with his movie star.
