1 Confidence Is Key

We are thankful for KP’s confidence. That same confidence that proved Knicks fans wrong. Now, he is helping the Knicks play with that “New York Grit.” And, that grit is helping the team find their groove early and often this young season.

2 #Blessed

Porzingis gives back and how can you not be thankful for that. KP has held youth pro camps, has his own foundation, and has held events in both New York and Latvia in his name.

3 The World's Largest Unicorn

We are thankful for KP’s height and for using that 7-foot-3 frame to do unicorn things like blocking shots, nabbing rebounds or slamming home monster dunks to bring The Garden faithful to their feet!

4 Fashion Forward

We are thankful for his fashion sense and are sure the NYC fashion scene must have impacted him. He’s a sharp dresser and he knows it. And, he’s even rocked cornrows – enough said.

5 Insta Inso

We are thankful for KP’s inspirational messages on Instagram. It’s probably just an excuse for him to post a candid or a picture where he’s looking softly into the camera, but nevertheless, we are thankful.

6 That's So Kristaps

Lastly, we are thankful for Kristaps Porzingis just being Kristaps Porzingis. New York’s very own, real-life unicorn.
