What the fuck was that KP? I don’t want to overreact here, but Kristaps Porzingis needs to fire his agent, his publicist, and/or his manager for this shit. You guys know I’ll defend my boy Godzingis until my dying breath. But even I cannot get behind him being a ferret guy, regardless of whether or not it’s a joke. Nobody had even heard of Latvia when we saw this 7’3″ lanky dude put on his Knicks hat on draft night, so most of us thought he was a weirdo. Then we realized he loved hip hop, had cornrows as a kid, didn’t have a thick European accent, and the stereotypes all came crumbling down. But you can’t keep an amphibious rodent in this city and not be considered a weirdo. I don’t want to jump the gun, but this could be the first step down an ugly path. Not quite booze or drugs or loose women. But being associated with ferrets is an absolutely TERRIBLE look.
Which is why I want Kristaps to know that I am here for him. We saw how the whole Pres + Johnny Football saga went. Regardless of how much Johnny would ignore Dave, Dave stood by him. Well maybe there were a few times when it looked liked Dave was out on JFF. But regardless, if felt right that Pres was there once Johnny got the look of the tiger back in his eyes as he rifled passes into Glenny Balls’ painted gut. I don’t want to see my 7’3″ Latvian unicorn bottom out so I can be the knight in shining armor that was there for him. But I just want him to know that the offer for my friendship will always be on the table, even if he owns 1000 ferrets. I’d much much much rather have the friendship without the fall from grace or the ferrets. But I will be there regardless.
