Pure unadulterated Knickery here. Kristaps was tweakin, but this aint all on him.
 

 
“He changed,’’ one NBA source said.




If you ask the New York Post. But let's continue because it gets even more interesting.

On occasion at the Tarrytown practice headquarters, Porzingis started parking his car haphazardly in front of the players’ entrance instead of in the a*signed parking spot that each player receives.

The symbolism was clear. Porzingis was going to do things outside the lines.

During that second season, Porzingis came up with an excuse to miss the Knicks’ annual charity Bowl-athon — the biggest season-ticket holder event the franchise has.

And after then-coach Jeff Hornacek told him during a practice to show more toughness on defense, Porzingis blurted back, “F–k you.’’ Hornacek was shocked.

Oh there's more.

Before his rookie season, Porzingis was a happy guest of the U.S. Open, sitting in a President’s Box suite to cheer on Latvian players. The following September, the Porzingis camp asked for tickets again to watch his Latvian compadres. This time, an inordinate amount of free seats were requested. When the USTA couldn’t accommodate all of them, Porzingis cancelled.

And let us continue.

Porzingis blew off his exit interview in April 2017. It was without warning, but had been plotted for weeks by Porzingis’ brother/agent Janis Porzingis.

Porzingis’ protest was to demonstrate disenchantment with the direction in which the franchise was headed under former president Phil Jackson and Mills, then the GM.

The ploy blindsided Jackson and Mills — stoking the beginning of the end for Porzingis in New York.

It wasn’t until last Jan. 30, his fourth in New York, that Porzingis’ Knicks career ended. It came less than an hour after a four-minute meeting attended by Porzingis, Janis, Mills and new GM Scott Perry.

Janis Porzingis called the meeting for a week before the trade deadline. He informed Mills that his brother wouldn’t commit to signing long-term on July 1. He asked for a trade, or said they would head back to Spain to rehab from Porzingis’ torn ACL.

By then, Mills felt he had done all he could to convince Janis Porzingis that New York was the place for his brother. An hour after the meeting, Janis Porzingis called Mills with his four-team wish list, headed by the Clippers and Nets.

It was too late. Mills had already cut a deal with the Mavericks — a team not on the list. Talks with Dallas had escalated the night before, when the Mavericks were at the Garden. Mills knew the next day’s meeting was the make-or-break moment. And most likely it would be “break.”

Which now brings us to Phil "he didn't have no plays" Jackson. image

Jackson looked at the big picture, though. The Zen Master was afraid durability could be a long-term issue. He was uncertain Porzingis would become a viable No. 1 option — a franchise player to build a team around.

Jackson noticed players much shorter than Porzingis — but more muscular — had success defending him in post-ups. Porzingis’ balance on his shot also was a concern.

Jackson theorized he might be able to get back two All-Stars and another future piece for Porzingis because of the New York hype machine. But Jackson never pulled the trigger. But after Porzingis blew off his exit meeting, Jackson was at it again, soliciting offers before the 2017 draft.

The Celtics offered a trove of a*sets, including Jaylen Brown, in a scenario under which the Knicks could move up and select future Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen, but again Jackson held back. Some in the league believe Jackson didn’t make the trade on orders from owner James Dolan. Who would’ve thought then it would turn into one of Jackson’s and Dolan’s worst miscalculations?

“Phil didn’t like the brother,’’ said Charley Rosen, a Jackson confidant. “He thought he was too inexperienced.’
and with that the stage was set for the hindenburgian descent to the current state of the knicks today.

Porzingis became Mills’ problem when Jackson was fired only days after that 2017 draft — partly due to the Porzingis rift. Mills was elevated to the presidency but ultimately never found a way to soften Janis Porzingis’ concerns about the direction of the franchise.

Mills could not shake being Jackson’s right-hand man who helped steer Anthony out of town. Porzingis looked up to Anthony. The Knicks believe Melo may have helped poison the waters with Porzingis.

“His brother and KP didn’t take it well when the Knicks were trying to run Carmelo out of town,’’ said Rosen, author of a new book, “Truth and Lies in Basketball.” “They felt management wasn’t showing proper respect for their best players. As a young player, he saw that as a management trend he didn’t want to be part of.”

As of this post they’re in the lead.

Nah a lot of this sh*t isn’t new..Janis was the problem, meanwhile KP stayed hurt...it wasn’t one sided, but KO was doing a lot for a guy who couldn’t stay on the court...wish him well doe
