Kristaps Porzingis in cryptic IG post: ‘The truth will come out’
The Kristaps Porzingis era of the New York Knicks came to a sudden and shocking end on Thursday, and the superstar center’s social media musings indicate there are some things he would like to get off his chest in the wake of the stunning development.
Porzingis was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks in a move that came in the blink of an eye. In a matter of hours, reports that Porzingis expressed his unhappiness with the Knicks’ direction and dysfunction in a meeting with team brass culminated in the out-of-nowhere trade.
With the dust settling, Porzingis posted a cryptic Instagram story in which he hints there is much more to be revealed about the machinations that resulted in his trade to the Mavs.

The above dispatch stood in stark contrast to an Instagram post from Porzingis in which he expresses gratitude for his time in New York.
“New York will always have a special place in my heart,” Porzingis writes. “Grateful for everybody who made this journey so special for my family and me.”
To say Porzingis’ time with the Knicks was rife with drama would be an understatement. It appeared that the superstar and organization have not been seeing eye-to-eye going all the way back to the disastrous Phil Jackson regime.
It remains to be seen how things play out for Porzingis in Dallas both in the long- and short-term, although he seems eager to start a new chapter in his NBA career alongside Rookie of the Year favorite Luka Doncic.

It goes without saying that Porzingis is thrilled to be moving on from the Knicks after his own personal “Escape from New York.”
