Knicks fans weren't outwardly excited when their team drafted Kristaps Porzingis fourth overall back in June's draft. Actually, they were the opposite. They booed. One kid cried. But then Porzingis performed well at Las Vegas Summer League and the narrative around him started to change. Maybe he could be a really strong player. And at Knicks media day Monday, his teammates were...

Robin Lopez is already throwing jabs at his brother, Brook

The Knicks signing Robin Lopez this summer was the best thing that could have happened to any of us. The NBA's goofiest player now gets to live in the same city as his equally-as-goofy brother, Brook, who re-signed with the Nets over the offseason. It's perfectly convenient for antagonizing.
