New article by Tim McMahon over at ESPN detailing some possible buyer's remorse that the Dallas Mavericks are experiencing with Kristaps Porzingis. For Knicks fans still sore over their playoff shellacking, this is an absolute goldmine of schadenfreude.
|But Porzingis has been frustrated, often feeling more like an afterthought than a co-star as Doncic dominates the ball and the spotlight, sources told ESPN. Porzingis frequently made thinly veiled references during his postgame media availabilities, such as saying the "ball actually moved tonight" after high-scoring performances or stating that the offense didn't involve him on low-scoring nights.
"It's just the plays we were running," Porzingis said after an April 7 loss to the last-place Houston Rockets when asked why he didn't get any shots in the fourth quarter despite scoring 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting in the game. After a pause, he added: "Happened before also."
