Kristaps Porzingis didn’t even make it to his first All-Star Weekend before losing his first NBA coach. Needless to say, the New York Knicks’ rising rookie was stunned when he learned Derek Fisher was fired Monday morning.

“I saw Coach right before he was leaving [and] I said goodbye to him,” Porzingis said about his final encounter with Fisher on Monday. “It was a shock for me at that moment when he said he wasn’t going to be my coach anymore. He said some good words to me, and I am very thankful for what he did for me and I told him that.”
