Just when you think this NBA offseason couldn’t get any wilder, we get a Woj Bomb dropped on our heads yesterday morning about the New York Knicks and their 7 foot Latvian star Kristaps Porzingis.
Apparently, the Knicks are not ruling out trading GODzingis and the Boston Celtics are interested. This is the type of stuff I live for in the sports, and especially during the summer in the National Basketball Association. There is nothing in the world like the shot of adrenaline you get from hearing a juicy NBA rumor and this one takes the cake.
I couldn’t think of a player I would want on my favorite team more besides maybe The Greek Freak. Porzingis is the type of player you move mountains for and if I’m the Celtics he is my primary target, not Jimmy Butler or Paul George.
It’s wild to me that the Knicks are even considering letting this guy go, but I guess that’s what you get when you have one of the top 3 or 4 worst owners in sports, a washed up coach turned GM that may or may not have lost his mind and a host of other chaotic issues. They are a dumpster fire of epic proportions and I actually feel bad for their fans.
But you know what? I don’t feel bad enough that I don’t want the Celtics to fleece their ass and take KP away. It’s my NBA offseason dream scenario and it might actually come to fruition.
