Michael Porter Jr. managed to take an L without even playing a game in the NBA yet. To make things worse, he may have pissed off Commissioner Adam Silver.
Complex reported, the Denver Nuggets had a preseason meeting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver. Michael Porter wanted to show his snapchat followers what he was doing and snapped a quick pic of Silver talking to the crowd. One problem, there was a projector that had a slide showing Adam Silver’s email, office and cell phone numbers! I am not going to repost the information but you know the internet has screenshots. So if you have some rule change ideas now is the time to reach out.
This is another tough moment in Michael Porter’s short career. Porter was a lottery pick at #14 in the 2018 NBA Draft, but due to a back injury he suffered, he sat his entire rookie season recovering from surgery. Ready to come back strong in year two, Porter injured his knee this offseason. His newest injury kept him out of the summer league and he may miss the first month of the season for the Nuggets. Tough starting off your career on the commissioner’s bad side.
As usual Twitter got their jokes off about Michael Porter’s dumb move. Flip the pages to see some of the best reactions.
