|RE: HOLY KRISTAPS: All Things Porzingis (out w/ right lateral meniscus tear)||12|
What a reactionary take.
First off, as knee injuries goes, a meniscus injury is as benign as they get. He will be recovered in 6 weeks at most. He will start to feel normal in 2-4 weeks. He freaking averaged 31 and 11 on a torn meniscus over 2 games. So please spare me the drivel. Furthermore, the play that it likely happened was when Zubac landed on KP's knee, so it wasn't like it was a non-contact injury.
Secondly Kristaps played 57 games this year. Anthony Davis played only FIVE more games than KP, yet we don't hear a single mention about how the Lakers have to trade AD at all costs and how the Lakers lost the trade because of how injury prone AD is.
And before you even say KP isn't even the same player as AD, KP averaged from December 23ppg 10rpg, and 2bpg on 45/37/84. In the bubble alone he 30.5ppg, 9.5rpg, 1.5bpg, on 48/38/89. He was transformational when he was on the court and affected the game in multiple ways.
KP is as untouchable as he gets and I'm glad the Mavs front office sees it the way I do.
This front office from 1999 to 2020 has been the 2nd winningest team in the NBA only behind the Spurs, and that's including the tanking years. A messy front office does not nail 2 of the best European players of all time. A messy front office doesn't trade 3 expirings and a disgruntled PG for a key role player, and an All-NBA caliber big man.
Your comment wreaks of entitlement and frankly unreachable expectations. The Mavs FO has made PLENTY of mistakes to harp on (like with any NBA franchise), but Kristaps freaking Porzingis isn't one of them. He isn't even close to a mistake.
