Cue the Rocky Music in grand fashion???? Has Kristaps Porzingis really transformed into Ivan Drago? Or was this photo just taken at the perfect moment in time during a workout? Either way this is a good a sign for the Mavericks. The man looks motivated and HUNGRY for revenge with all new muscles. In this case instead of facing Rocky, he is facing the new NBA, that has actually changed a lot since his ACL injury over 1 year ago.
If we look back, just about a few months ago, we can remember the video that surfaced of him after getting jumped in a scuffle overseas. At the time it looked like he might not be fully focused on basketball. It started to seem like Mavericks made the wrong decision, and Knicks made the right decision. All that has changed now with this POWERFUL picture. Everyone is banking on Lakers or Clippers winning it all this coming 2019-2020 season. Lakers have Lebron James and Anthony Davis, while Clippers have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. I think this might have been Kristaps Porzingis message, that he and Luka Doncic are going to be the force to be reckoned with on the Mavericks, Ivan Drago style????
