Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis Gets 'Hotline Bling' Treatment

Vanessa de BeaumontContributor IFebruary 12, 2016

When two modern-day sensations collide, magic happens.

Enter #HotlineZing, the story of New York Knicks star rookie Kristaps Porzingis' rise from irrelevance to prominence, told to the tune of Drake's latest hit.

In this fantastic animation, the Latvian baller assumes his game-day identity of Porzingod, rocks a red hoodie and Tims, throws down some massive jams and dances Drizzy style (ball included).  

Although he's celebrating his accomplishments, don't think he's forgotten about the night of the draft, Knicks fans. "You used to boo me on my draft day; said you wanted Okafor," the two-dimensional 7-footer recalls.

There's truly only one way this could be improved, Kristaps: How about a live-action version?
