New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis said he was “fired up” after hearing team president Phil Jackson compare him to Shawn Bradley.

He thought Jackson may have made the Bradley comparison to motivate him.

“I guess that’s what Phil does, gets guys to work hard and [get fired] up. That fired me up. ‘I’m like, I’m not Shawn Bradley, you know,’” Porzingis said on Wednesday from a company here that is providing him with a custom mattress to fit his 7-foot-1 frame.
