Kristaps Porzingis Needs Carmelo Anthony More Than You Think

As the Knicks rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis struggled during the three game road trip, people are starting to wonder if he hit a rookie wall and is he meshing with Carmelo Anthony? Anthony answers.

I know what we have as teammates. Nobody can come between us despite what anybody says. Nobody,” Anthony told Yahoo Sports.

Anthony has been part of the Knicks organization since 2011. The Amar’e Stoudemire experiment didn’t really live to expectations, trying to share the spotlight with Melo. But the arrival of Porzingis can aid Melo in the long run. Melo hopes to continue mentoring Porzingis on the growth of his game.

His is making a lot of situations [easier] for me,” Porzingis said. “Because of him I’m getting wide-open looks. He’s great. Playing alongside him, I can just read him and play off of him. When I am open, he is going to hit me. I don’t doubt that.”

Porzingis is averaging 13,6 points and 8.4 rebounds on 44 percent shooting. He is one of the candidates for rookie of the year and currently second behind Karl-Anthony Towns. He has dealt with the boos on draft night and responded with solid numbers. But when will those boos come when he starts to struggle. Anthony wants to be the guy telling him that everything will be okay despite tough nights and fans criticizing his game.

When things are going good, they put you way up there,” Anthony told Yahoo Sports. “When things are going bad, they kick the chair from underneath you. Those are experiences that he is going to have to go through. But if I can be there and be that guy who can grab him up and say everything is going to be all right, I’m going to do that. I support him 100 percent. In New York they can run you in the ground with all that attention. I’m there to just let him know that when it’s good, it’s great.

The pressure may be off of Porzingis, but not Melo. Fans are hungry for a championship since 1973 and Melo knows if he doesn’t deliver, he would fail just like others did in the past.
