Kristaps Porzingis has made New York Knicks fans eat their words regarding their feelings about him since they drafted the Latvian rookie sensation last June. He's averaging 13.9 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks per contest, and was the October-November NBA Co-Rookie of the Month.
Not only does NYC feel like they have a future to feel proud of having him, but so does his native country Latvia shipping their best basketball product in their nation's history to this side of the Atlantic. And speaking of "future," Porzingis revealed that he loves rap as well as turning up before games by listening to the artist of the same name. Therefore, it's only right that there have been multiple rap videos from his native land dedicated to Porzingis.
Here's a new one from Latvian rap duo OLAS, who made a song and video to show off their swag and support for Porzingis to boost his All-Star votes in their latest video "Keep Calm Like Porzingis." They rhyme (in Latvian, of course) over the beat to Future's "Thought It Was A Drought," and it's awash with shoutouts to Porzee's boyhood idol and teammate Carmelo Anthony, and statistics about Porzingis and the Knicks. In the clip, you'll see them stunting in front of a couple Lamborghinis doing donuts in the snow, a girl who looks like she came out of a Latvian fairytale dancing happily, and one of the guys looking like the hip hop version of Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
