James Worthy on Kristaps Porzingis: “He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant”

image (2)New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis that the fans are not on his side right. The NBA Draft was supposed to be one of the best days of his life. But Knicks fans changed all of that when they booed Porzingis out of the building. But after watching him playing in the NBA Summer League, Porzingis is started to change the narrative about him. In fact, a Los Angeles Laker great has compared Porzingis with two of the best shooting big men of all-time. Hall of Famer James Worthy says the Knicks big man is a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant.


Lakers great James Worthy, now a team broadcaster, gave the wildest praise yet for 19-year-old Kristaps Porzingis, who will face the Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center Monday night in the Knicks’ second summer league game.

After his 12-points-in-18-minutes showing against the Spurs in his Knicks debut Saturday, Worthy said on the Lakers broadcast: “He’s a freak of nature. He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. It’s a good pick for the Knicks.’’


Even though Porzingis has been impressive, he is not on the same level as Dirk or Durant. I think Worthy got a little carried away with this one.
