Kristaps Porzingis sat down for an interview with ESPN.com to talk about the young season, the New York Knicks’ potential to reach the playoffs, life without Carmelo Anthony and his new partnership with Zing Bars, a nutritional bar company in which Porzingis has invested.
Q: There are so many new faces here this season. No Phil Jackson, no Carmelo Anthony. What’s been different so far this year compared to the last two seasons?
A: I would say it’s a different vibe, a new vibe. A lot of new minds in new positions and a lot of new guys, players that want to play their best basketball that want to compete. … That’s what’s most important. We’re going out there and we’re playing hard, especially on the defensive end.
