About Kristaps Porzingis

Known to basketball fans as the “Unicorn,” Kristaps Porzingis emerged as the clear leader of the New York Knicks in 2017. A native of Latvia, Kristaps has developed quite an international fanbase, accounting for his 600K+ combined Twitter and Facebook fans. Life in NYC has done more than just cement his status as a star player, it’s made him a fashion icon, too. Always rocking something fresh, whether it’s a game day or not, Kristaps isn’t shy when it comes to showing off his styles. He even released signature Adidas shoes in November with unicorns on the soles. His Instagram feed shows him hanging with other celebrities, making moves on the court, and reveling in the spotlight in his own goofball way. With 1.5M+ followers, his account is a slam dunk!
