You can’t knock persistence. If Kristaps Porzingis gave up on the hardwood every time he got his shot blocked or defended well, the Knicks wouldn’t have the player that they do today. Why would Porzingis treat his life decisions any different from how he operates on the basketball court?
Porzingis has already tried once before to get at IG model Ines Nikic via social media. Nikic shot him down by posting a pic of her and her boyfriend kissing. That obviously didn’t phase Kristaps because he tried again.
