    towns for tacko
    magic to point guard
    Edwards to shooting guard
    Russel for Odom


    Why 2K, There is no reason to release a Galaxy Opal Tingas Pingis at SF?? I get Dirk and SG/SF because he was actually a legend and deserved the respect. You can release a Opal Porzingis at SG but can't release an opal Westbroook. I just don't like your strategy. Please don't release an opal Sim Bhullar at PG. Just stop tryna save ur franchise and be yourself. Stop releasing players at the wrong position.


    i don't know what you're talking about "save your franchise"... this clearly is them being themselves, money laundering scam artists


    I hope you realize that they will release opal Russ in the next few weeks...


    And he's gonna be a 40k card that nobody uses because he's only 6'3", just like Lillard

    Show 1 reply...

    Lower it to about 10k and you're spot on my friend

    Bro, I am actually shocked 2k did not put him at point knowing them.


    should i sell prime lebron, get kd, then lock in for jonathan isaac or keep lebron?


    Keep Lebron. If you want Jonathan Isaac, just get Blake Griffin or Lamar Odom.

    Hv 1.4 million MT, looking for the good SG. Any suggestion? Thx


    follow me on twitch


    follow me on twitch


    follow me on twitch

    follow me on twitch


    a 7'3 sg/sf with t-macs animations, this is beyond a joke


    What has happened


    Is this guy worth the MT, I need a wing, but a Center upgrade would be nice as well(currently Eddy Curry)


    Curry is fine


    But should I get this guy for a wing?

    Show 2 replies...

    Pick up Jimmy Butler, Steve smith, Kawhi Leonard, Tmac/derozan. Don’t pick up Tingus Pingis


    At least he can’t play shoo.............wait a min


    opal evod simmons or glitched blake?


    I don't really see the point of this card. It is slow for the SG and probably still seems clumsy with the ball like his other GO did. I feel like this card will be going for a ton of mt, so don't buy him.

    Did you know that his wingspan is 7'6 #ramdomwingspans


    Give Porzingis two Opals before current all-stars get one, yup, keep up the good work Ronnie.


    tallest SG in the game! glitched dirk is angry


    Pulled him and Jaylen brown from 1 10 pack

    #FUCK J-money_JY


    This card SUCKS!!!! Man didnt even go to SYRACUSE. At least the positions are realistic though, so im not tooo mad


    Random Facts:

    Kristaps Porziņģis (Latvian pronunciation: [ˈkris.taps ˈpuɔr.ziɲ.ɟis]; born 2 August 1995) is a Latvian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is one of the tallest active players in the NBA, standing at 7 ft 3 in (2.21 m) tall, and plays both the power forward and center positions.

    Born in Liepāja, Porziņģis began his professional career with EuroLeague team Sevilla in 2011. Porziņģis quickly rose through the team's youth ranks and became the figurehead of the senior team by 2013. He subsequently won the EuroCup Basketball Rising Star award in 2015, where, at age 18, he became the youngest ever recipient of the award. The following summer, he declared for the NBA draft, where he was selected fourth overall by the New York Knicks.

    In New York, Porziņģis shone as the team's star, but, after disagreements with the front office, was traded to Dallas in 2019.

    Early career

    Porziņģis followed his parents' footsteps and started to play basketball at age 6. Once he turned 12, his older brother, Jānis, who played professionally in Europe, would take him to offseason training sessions.[1] He played in youth competition with BK Liepājas Lauvas, the most famous club based in hometown of Liepāja, until he was 15 years old. An agent from Latvia sent video of him around this time to teams in Spain and Italy.[2] In 2010, Baloncesto Sevilla, a club that had a professional team competing in the Liga ACB in Spain, called Porziņģis for a tryout in an attempt to recruit foreign talent to its junior squads. He stood 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) and weighed 157 lb (71 kg) at this time.[2][3] Porziņģis recalled the moment and said, "I came here with my brother for two or three days, but it was really hot and I couldn't play at my best because of that. Still, I received a contract in summer 2010 and I signed it."[2] Inmaculada Avivar, a nutritionist for Sevilla, diagnosed that Porziņģis was suffering from anemia, meaning that he had fewer red blood cells.[4] This caused him to feel fatigue, shortness of breath, and inability to exercise. Nevertheless, he gradually overcame the condition and began seeing improvement in his game.[2] In addition to his medical problems, Porziņģis had trouble picking up the language in Seville, making him reluctant to return there after his first tryout. In his first season playing for the junior squad, he struggled to communicate with the coaching staff and his teammates and was often sleepy due to his health.[2]

    Porziņģis debuted for the youth squad on 4 January 2012, against its counterpart from Barcelona, adding 12 points and 10 rebounds. The opposing side was led by Alexander Zhigulin, who would go on to enter the 2015 NBA draft and withdraw.[5] However, Sevilla was defeated, 56–75.[6] This game was part of the Ciutat de L'Hospitalet tournament, which led up to the Nike International Junior Tournament (NIJT).[2] On 5 January, he scored a personal best of 16 points on the Spars Sarajevo youth squad, helping Sevilla beat their opponents by a margin of 8 points.[7] Porziņģis said, "I knew it was a prestigious tournament and that I had to do well", he said. "I think I could have done much better, but I wasn't physically 100 percent. I have seen videos and could have been much more aggressive. But I wish I could have played better."[2] He finished the tournament averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 blocks.[2] Porziņģis represented the Sevilla junior team again at the same tournament in early 2013. Against Union Olimpija on 4 January, he recorded 15 points and 6 rebounds.[8] On 6 January, in the team's tournament finale vs Real Madrid's youth squad, he scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. He also made a total of five three-pointers.[9] Porziņģis proved to be more effective in his second year, averaging 16.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.6 blocks and going .481 on three-pointers.[2] This would be his final stint in the youth categories of Sevilla.
    Professional career
    2012–13: Rookie season

    Entering the 2012–13 ACB season, Sevilla had hired Aíto García Reneses, who previously worked with the likes of Pau Gasol, Juan Carlos Navarro, Ricky Rubio and Rudy Fernández.[2] On 29 September 2012, Porziņģis got the opportunity to make an appearance with the club's first team, but was allowed to play just a minute. Sevilla took a tremendous loss to CB Murcia.[10] Following a return to the youth categories of the club at the Torneig de Bàsquet Junior Ciutat de L'Hospitalet, he went back to competing for the senior squad. On 16 January 2013, he logged only four minutes against Spartak Saint Petersburg in the EuroCup, scoring no points, but contributing one rebound and one assist.[11] He scored his first basket for the senior team on 20 February 2013, in a rematch with Spartak. Porziņģis said, "I was very nervous at the beginning: I wanted to do well and not pick up turnovers. At the same time, I got a lot of confidence with players of my same age. That allowed me to play better with the first team and practice with more confidence."[2] On 4 May 2013, he posted a season-high 7 points with the senior team, hitting two of three shots vs Bilbao Basket in ACB competition.[12]
    2013–14: Second season and NBA consideration

    Porziņģis opened his second season on Sevilla's main squad strong in his third game against the EuroLeague team Laboral Kutxa, leading them to a 20-point ACB victory on 2 November 2013.[2] He notched a career-high 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 blocks.[13] He broke his scoring record once more against Real Madrid on 30 November 2013, nearly leading his team to a victory.[2][13] Against the very same team on 6 April 2014, Porziņģis scored a career-high 20 points, nailing 2 three-pointers.[13] Despite his team losing, he began to trend on social media because of his performance. He said, "It was a very good game for me on offense. I didn't get any rebounds in that game. I had a good shooting night, but could have helped more on defense. Still, fans in Madrid gave me a nice ovation when I fouled out and I liked that a lot."[2] On 25 May, he got the chance to face his idol Justin Doellman of Barcelona, whom he called the "best power forward in Spanish basketball". He scored 14 points against Doellman's team.[2][13] In May 2014, Porziņģis was selected in the ACB All-Young Players Team of the 2013–14 season.[14]

    In April, Porziņģis declared himself eligible for the 2014 NBA draft.[15] Before and after he made the decision, he drew interest from National Basketball Association (NBA) teams such as the Orlando Magic, who held the 12th overall pick, and traveled to Europe to scout him. The Oklahoma City Thunder reportedly were certainly going to select him with the 21st pick in the case that he remained. Porziņģis was considered an unfinished product and a top-15 draft pick. According to, he was the fourth-youngest prospect in their top-100 rankings.[3][16] Shortly before the day of the draft, however, he withdrew his name. Porziņģis's agent Andy Miller released the information to ESPN, saying that his client did not feel prepared to become a part of the NBA and wanted to develop his skills until the 2015 draft. One of the league's general managers commented on him, "He's very talented. He wasn't ready, but we would've seriously considered drafting him anyway. If he continues to develop his game, get more minutes and his body develops, I think he could be a top-five pick in 2015. He has that kind of talent."[17]
    2014–15: EuroCup Rising Star

    Prior to the 2014–15 ACB season, head coach Aíto García Reneses parted ways with Sevilla.[18] On 4 October 2014, against CB 1939 Canarias, Porziņģis made his season debut in the Liga ACB, scoring 3 points in the game. He made his first appearance at the 2014–15 EuroCup on 15 October, vs. EWE Baskets Oldenburg and scored 2 points. However, he had a strong EuroCup performance against Pallacanestro Virtus Roma in the weeks that followed, in which he contributed 18 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks. He recorded a double-double in mid-November in a win over Estudiantes, adding 11 points and 11 rebounds. On 11 February 2015, he scored a season-high 19 points against the EuroCup's Turów Zgorzelec. He tied this record on 18 April 2015, vs. Bàsquet Manresa in the ACB.[19] On 15 April 2015, Porziņģis was named the winner of the EuroCup Rising Star Award of the season.[20] One month later, he repeated in the ACB All-Young Players Team, after avoiding the relegation with Baloncesto Sevilla.[21]
    New York Knicks

    On 16 April 2015, Porziņģis entered the 2015 NBA draft, according to a report from agent Andy Miller.[22] After gaining a season more of experience, he became known as a lottery pick and a potential top-5 selection. He drew interest from teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, who had the No. 2 pick and had several personnel that had seen Porziņģis play in Spain.[23] He was compared with players such as Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowitzki, but also Darko Miličić, a former lottery selection widely considered a draft bust.[24] Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports wrote, "Porziņģis has an innate awareness about the way the American public sees a young, long European teenager. He comes to the NBA with the full understanding that popular basketball culture declares him guilty until proven innocent of the basketball crimes of Darko Miličić and Nikoloz Tskitishvili and Andrea Bargnani. He's considered a stiff, a bust, a blown lottery pick until he doesn't become one..."[25]

    On 25 June 2015, Porziņģis was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft by the New York Knicks.[26][27] He was booed by some New York fans upon being drafted, but vowed to change the fans' opinions on him from negative to positive.[28] On the same night, the New York Knicks traded for Porziņģis' teammate from Sevilla, Willy Hernangómez, who was originally drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers as a 35th overall pick.[29] Porziņģis became the highest drafted Latvian and Baltic player in NBA history.
    2015–16: Rookie season
    Porziņģis on 31 October 2015, in his third NBA game

    On 30 July 2015, Porziņģis signed his rookie-scale contract with the Knicks.[30] On 28 October 2015, he scored 16 points in his NBA debut, leading New York to a 122–97 season-opening win over the Milwaukee Bucks. He was 3 of 11 from the field and 9 of 12 from the line.[31] On 21 November 2015, he had 24 points, 14 rebounds and seven blocked shots to lead the Knicks to a 107–102 victory over the Houston Rockets, becoming the first 20-year-old to post such a stat line in a single game since Shaquille O'Neal in 1992–93.[32]

    He became the first rookie to reach those totals since Tim Duncan in 1998.[33] On 3 December 2015, he was named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for games played in October and November. He ranked third among all rookies in scoring (13.7 ppg) and was second in rebounding (9.3 rpg) and blocked shots (1.89 bpg) for October and November.[33] He went on to claim Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month honours for December and January as well.[34][35] On 12 February 2016, he scored 30 points for Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge.[36][37] On 23 March 2016, he tied a career high with 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 115–107 win over the Chicago Bulls. He was one point short of becoming the first rookie since Patrick Ewing to put up 30 points and 10 rebounds in one game for the Knicks.[38]

    Porziņģis appeared in 72 of the Knicks' 82 games in 2015–16, missing the final seven games of the season due to a right shoulder strain.[39] He finished with averages of 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 blocks per game. Porziņģis finished second in the NBA Rookie of the Year Award voting behind winner Karl-Anthony Towns,[40] and earned NBA All-Rookie First Team honors.[41]
    2016–18: Rise to stardom

    On 16 November 2016, Porziņģis scored a career-high 35 points in a 105–102 win over the Detroit Pistons.[42] On 11 December 2016, he recorded 26 points, 12 rebounds and a career high-tying seven blocks in a 118–112 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.[43] On 19 January 2017, he came off the bench for the first time in his NBA career after returning from a four-game absence due to a sore left Achilles tendon. He subsequently scored 15 points in a 113–110 loss to the Washington Wizards.[44] During the 2017 All-Star Weekend, Porziņģis played for Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge and won the Skills Challenge.[45]

    In the Knicks' season opener the following season, on 19 October 2017, Porziņģis had 31 points and 12 rebounds in a 105–84 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.[46] On 30 October 2017, he scored a career-high 38 points in a 116–110 win over the Denver Nuggets.[47] Less than a week later, on 5 November, Porziņģis set a new career high with 40 points in a 108–101 win over the Indiana Pacers.[48] Porziņģis was subsequently named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played from Monday, 30 October through Sunday, 5 November.[49] Porziņģis would record the best start to a season for Knicks player, earning 300 points through 10 games, two more than Bernard King had to open the 1984–85 season,[50][51] and his performances continued, where, on 23 January 2018, he was named an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve.[52]

    However, on 6 February 2018, in a 103–89 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks,[53] Porziņģis tore his left ACL.[54] He was subsequently ruled out for the rest of the season.
    2018–19: Injury and recovery

    In October 2018, the Knicks decided against signing Porziņģis to a rookie extension, a move that will give New York an extra $10 million in cap space in the summer of 2019 while making Porziņģis a restricted free agent in the offseason.[55] Due to recovering from his ACL injury, Porziņģis did not play for the Knicks to begin the 2018–19 season.

    On 31 January 2019, after a meeting with the Knicks left franchise officials with the impression that he wanted to be traded,[56] Porziņģis was traded alongside Trey Burke, Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for DeAndre Jordan, Wesley Matthews, Dennis Smith Jr., an unprotected 2021 first-round draft pick, and an additional top-ten protected 2023 first round draft pick.[57][58] He sat out the remainder of the 2018–19 season, healing from his ACL injury. On 12 July, Porziņģis agreed to re-sign with the Mavericks on a five-year maximum contract worth $158 million.[59][60] Porziņģis debuted for the Mavericks on 23 October 2019, posting 23 points and 4 rebounds in a 108–100 win over the Washington Wizards.[61] On 31 January 2020, he scored a then season-high 35 points, along with 12 rebounds in a 128–121 loss to the Houston Rockets.[62] On 3 February, that season-high would be surpassed with a 38-point, 12-rebound performance in a 112–103 win over the Indiana Pacers.[63] Just two days later, Porziņģis would follow that up with 32 points and 12 rebounds in a 121–107 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, before leaving the game with a broken nose.[64][65] On 1 March, Porziņģis matched his season-high 38 points, along with 14 rebounds and 5 blocks, in a 111–91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.[66] Three days later, he registered 34 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks in a 127–123 overtime win over the New Orleans Pelicans, becoming the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to have consecutive 30-point, 5-block games.[67][68]
    National team career

    Porziņģis played with the Latvian youth team and was selected in the 2013 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship All-Tournament Team.

    In 2015, Porziņģis was named the Latvian Rising Star of the Year.[69]

    In 2017, Porziņģis played for Latvia at EuroBasket 2017, where he averaged 23.6 points per game (ranked 3rd), 5.9 rebounds per game (ranked 19th) and 1.9 blocks per game (ranked 1st).[70] Latvia was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Slovenia, losing 103–97.

    "He's a guy I've always looked up to. It's not fair for me to be compared to a legend like him."

    —Porziņģis on Dirk Nowitzki, August 2017[71]

    Porziņģis has been compared to Dirk Nowitzki, with the pair having both been groomed in Europe before entering the NBA. Both Porziņģis and Nowitzki are seven-foot-plus players who are comfortable anywhere on the front line and can both shoot from the outside.[71] During his rookie season, Kevin Durant dubbed Porziņģis a basketball "unicorn" because of his rare combination of talents.[72] In January 2018, Porziņģis was averaging 19 shot attempts per game for the Knicks, the most ever by a player his size (the only players 7 ft 3 in (2.21 m) or taller to average 15 field goal attempts per game were Ralph Sampson and Yao Ming). Due to his height and mobility, Porziņģis is able to shoot over any defender, with his sheer size and high volume creating a unique advantage shared by no other player in the league.[
