(Kristaps) Porzingis mentions (Dirk) Nowitzki as a player who inspired him when he was younger in Latvia.
So he’d appreciate the praise Nowitzki heaped on him Monday night.
“He’s not only a 7-footer but he is like 7-4 out there with an 8-5 wingspan,” Nowitzki said. “He’s got an incredible touch. He can move. He can dribble. He can put it on the floor more now. He is going to be a great player in this league for a long, long time.”
