"The @nyknicks needed a hero. Enter Kristaps Porzingis (@kporzee). The 20-year-old forward was seen as a dubious draft pick 6 months ago. But now @kporzee, a native of Latvia, is considered a contender for Rookie of the Year. In the process, he has become a celebrity in New York, where he has been treated to Page 6 mentions in @nypost, videos by fashion blogs, and an @ESPN advertisement with a hip-hop soundtrack. Despite his age and inexperience, Porzingis has been handling the pressures of his fame with equanimity and grace. @damonwinter photographed a group of children with @kporzee — who, it should be noted, is 7-foot-3 — at a charity event this month at @rockcenternyc."
