Yardbarker Logo By Zac Wassink, Yardbarker of Yardbarker | Slide 2 of 27: New York Knicks fans who booed when the club spent the fourth pick of the 2015 NBA Draft on 7-foot-3 forward Kristaps Porzingis were forced to eat those criticisms after the Unicorn averaged 14.3 PPG, 7.3 REB, and 1.9 BLK while also flashing impressive long-distance range for a man his size as a rookie. Lordzingis, as he affectionately became known, earned a spot on the 2018 All-Star squad, but he suffered a torn ACL in February of that year. He never again played for the Knicks, as he orchestrated a trade to the Dallas Mavericks in January 2019.
