After being selected 4th overall by the New York Knicks in the 2015 NBA Draft, Kristaps Porzingis already sported a New York jersey, but it wasn’t his Knicks jersey. Less than 24 hours since being drafted into the NBA, Porzingis and fellow Knicks’ draftee Jerian Grant, were honored at the New York Mets game by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Kristaps didn’t look like much of a baseball player out on the mound with his 7 foot 1 inch frame, but he threw a nice fastball right down the middle. This is just the first of many appearances Kristaps will have in the New York media, as he is now a key part of the revival of the Knicks franchise.
