But he also put in some iconic performances, handled Phil Jackson's public criticism quite well and seemed to maintain a professionalism despite constant trade rumors throughout his final season in NY.
Porzingis has something else Anthony doesn't: a winning record.
After star small forward Carmelo Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled off probably their most impressive victory of the season last night over the Philadelphia 76ers, they immediately get right back at it today at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. I want to win because I'm on the opposite team now. He said Thursday that he would be examined by the team's medical staff Friday.

Previously videos had to be a minimum of 90 seconds, and the first ad break was allowed to appear after 20 seconds. The news also contains a change to Live Ad Breaks that appears created to address concerns around brand safety.
Kristaps Porzingis admitted he initially felt his knee "buckle a little bit" in the second quarter of Thursday's win in Brooklyn. But I'd be lying if I said I'm not ecstatic to be going back and playing there.

Melo had his best game of the campaign on Friday night as he posted 24 points on 11-of-17 shooting against the Sixers and he'll be keen to put his old team to the sword on Saturday night. I still believe they are the best team in the West... "I am anxious about the Knicks". Jackson alternated between trying to win and trying to rebuild seemingly every season, and his insistence on running the triangle offense appeared out of touch in an era when National Basketball Association teams are pushing the pace.

Mills and Perry took aim at the culture and signaled a desire to build behind Porzingis, whose average of 25.5 points would be even higher if not for a sprained ankle that forced him to leave one game after 2 1/2 minutes. "So it's more about being cautious", Porzingis said. "Guys are trying to make it work".
