There’s much talk over whose team the New York Knicks are, whether Kristaps Porzingis or Carmelo Anthony.
The debate has gone as far as suggesting Anthony takes a back seat and let the young big man take over.
The debate is not alien to the young center, but he is not putting much stock into it, as long as the Knicks keep winning.
“I don’t really react to it,” Porzingis said Tuesday. “That’s not something I’m worried about. I read social media and Twitter and all that. But a lot of that is just in and out. And I don’t really pay attention to it. It doesn’t really matter. All that really matters is [to] win games. And as long as we’re winning it’s not going to be a debate about whose team is it or whatever. So that’s the main focus.”
Porzingis has said that Anthony helps his production on the court. And the numbers thus far this season back that up.
The Knicks (8-9) have been carried by Anthony at times this season and by Porzingis in other stretches.
