It’s safe to say New York Knicks fans do not like Kristaps Porzingis anymore, considering he was once called the Unicorn and embraced by the KNICKSTAPE faithful. In his return to Madison Square Garden (after demanding a trade away from New York) with his new team, the arena showered him with boos as a member of the Dallas Mavericks.
They even went as far as calling him “asshole” as he shot free throws in the second quarter.
After the game he spoke to the media about the incident saying that the boos were loud and he was disappointed that the Mavs did not win the game. He also said he’s not here to win Knicks fans over anymore and he’s focused on his new team.
The game came down to the wire and New York grinded out the 106-103 win.
