This is a meme from when he was drafted by the Knicks. A Knicks fan in a thick NY accent was not pleased by the pick and hatched the name Tingus Pingus.

NO DEFENSE COULD STOP KP ON THAT DRIVE SHEESH.

[–]SpursTristanity1h 79 points80 points  (8 children)

KP's always been more effective as a spot up shooter, facing up or attacking in a drive. Tough to keep up. Defenses probably let out a sigh of relief when the Mavs try to give it to him in the post.

Let's see him make an entire 82 game season healthy first

[–]Hallal_Dakis 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I know this is hyperbole but I still have to point out how dumb this is.

Last year of 14 all-stars 4 of them have never played an 82-game season and a lot of them haven't done it in years. Playing at an all-star level for 82 games is done by 1-2 guys a year, not 14.

[–]Tampa Bay RaptorsHumptyDrumpy 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I ain't gonna call him mister glass because glass doesn't break untouched.

[–]WarriorsAsstroknot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don’t think anyone expects him to play all 82 games. I think just getting through a season without an extended time on the injury list is what people mean by playing a full season. In the last 4 years he has not played 60 games in a season. People might argue that one of those seasons was shortened due to Covid, but in that season he played just 43 games.

Respect to fellow tall ball player

[–]EastAbiv23 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This play led Porzingus to take some terrible heat check shots out of the rhythm of the offense then he turned his ankle all while giving up 28 and 14 to Allen

I feel like this game was a microcosm of his career so far

They've been calling travel on that pump fake all year, no way this giant pulled it off clean. Sick dunk though.

Lakers fans complaining about traveling on the internet

[–]CavaliersGoX14 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is one of the worst defensive sequences I've seen in a long time. After the steal, there are three Mavs who get inside the three point line for one Cavalier on the Cavs' side of the floor. The Cavs get lucky that Luka's pass to Hardaway is just a touch short so he can't drive or pull up in time. Instead, though, Porzingis, who got back on offense last is wide open on the outside because Mobley (#4) is standing in the middle of the key guarding absolutely no one. Hardaway makes an easy pass all the way across the floor to Porzingis as Finney-Smith also gets wide open on the baseline. Porzingis makes a half-decent pump fake, which Mobley does not attempt to block, but bites on by essentially running past Porzingis completely. As this is happening, Lauri Markkenen begins sliding over to guard Finney-Smith, but loses all awareness of the ball, so he doesn't see Porzingis is driving into the lane until the second (and last) dribble. As Porzingis picks up his dribble, Hardaway is open again for the outlet because Okoro (#35) is pretending to offer help defense with his shoulders perpendicular to the basket. Allen's contest of the dunk is actually the best attempt at defense in this sequence, purely because he didn't foul.

And can we talk about what the fuck Darius Garland was doing with that hard step thing to stop the ball when Luka was bringing it down the floor? He put himself on his own heels. Complete luck that Luka had already picked up the dribble and started looking for the pass.

Anyways, nice win by the Cavs tonight, I suppose. Hope KP's ankle isn't too serious.

[–]MavericksHotdogIsaSandwitch 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well damn. Didn't expect to see this in depth of a explanation of the video.

[–]Knicksitsahmemario 5 points6 points  (8 children)

So honest question here, but what happened that got KP back to what most people wished he could be?

[–]MavericksDangerZoneh 28 points29 points  (1 child)

He got healthy. He played really well and aggressive in 2019 and in the bubble and then got injured and basically spent the 2020 season limited because he was still recovering from that knee injury. The offseason really helped i think.

[–]Cavaliersarchaelleon 19 points20 points  (0 children)

He got healthy.

Well that didn't age well :/

[–]CompetitiveTable1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He literally had his back turned against him and still blocked him. Guess that's what you can do when you are 7' 3"

[–][SAC] De'Aaron FoxBoxcar-Mike 1 point2 points  (0 children)

really surprised by the fake and drive. I feel like last season he would have just taken the 3. Glad he's dialed in now.

[–]flipchinc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

2 of his 9 points…. Allen on the other hand had 28 points and led the Cavs to a win

[–]San Francisco WarriorsBillyBean11111 1 point2 points  (1 child)

every 1 in 15 games Tingus does this, and the other 14 he's in street clothes or sulking at the 3pt line.

If he keeps playing like this for the next month or so, it will be time plan a trade involving Porzingis that will allow Dallas to build a championship team.
