Kristaps Porzingis’ ‘Confused’ To Being Called A ‘Unicorn’ By Kevin Durant (Video)

Kristaps Porzingis’ nickname is one that many know but little did we know that when he originally heard the nickname, he was confused. While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he talked about his reaction to it.

Kristaps Porzingis sported some sneakers with actual unicorns on the bottom sole. But at first, being called a unicorn was something foreign to him. He has fully embraced the nickname and as he told Jimmy Fallon, at first, he was confused by it.

“I was like, ‘what is it, a horse with a ponytail? Like… what? What does it mean?’” Porzingis asked. “But then they kind of explained it to me, like, what he tried to say is that I’m a unique player. So, you know, it was nice to hear him say good things about me.”

We certainly hope the unicorn continues to prevail as he scared many Knicks fans with an injury a few nights ago. Thankfully, it’s nothing too serious.
