I think Porzingis will be a star in New York. More elite GM's believe in his talent than any other player in this draft.

As Jalen Rose said, the Knicks need “EVERYTHING.” Porzingis is the first piece in a team that desperately needs rebuilding. You have your front court, now go get your point New York.
