Be prepared for basketball’s unicorn known as “Godzingis” to rock the 3 stripes on his feet.
With the NBA regular season just 3 weeks away, franchises and players are putting together the final pieces of a run to a successful season. While some players are fighting for minutes and a bigger role in their team systems, others are adding a couple of more zero’s to their net worth. A prime example of this is New York Knicks forward Krystaps Porzingis. Coming off of a spectacular rookie season, Porzinigis is ready to show fans that he’s the next superstar that’s ready to take the Knicks to another level, on and off the court. Recently, Porzingis signed a new sneaker deal with adidas, that is worth $3-6 million dollars annually, making him the highest paid European sneaker athlete in NBA history.
Drafted by the Knicks with the 4th overall pick, Porzingis had a sensational rookie season, averaging 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks a night, good enough to finish second in the Rookie Of The Year Award running behind Minnesota Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns. The Latavian giant known as “Godzingis” would be Houston Rockets scoring machine James Harden, Portland Trailblazers franchise player Damian Lillard, Atlanta Hawks defensive machine Dwight Howard and fellow Knick teammates Derrick Rose & Joakim Noah. Fans should be looking forward to see what custom made adidas he will be sporting on the court. You never know Kanye might blessed the 7″3 giant with some player edition Yeezy’s. PERFECT!
