Kristaps Porzingis is back in good health. Porzingis successfully handled his first training camp. This raises fans' expectations for the new season's performance.
Porzingis suffered a serious injury in February 2018, when he was a member of the New York Knicks. This forced him to rehabilitate for more than a year and a half. He is ready to shake off his injuries and prepare for his first season at the Dallas Mavericks.
Dallas, who won the European duo Luka Dončić and Porzingis as the centers of the team that will succeed Dirk Nowitzki, who has retired last season, is one of the teams that has attracted much attention this season. For Dallas to do well, it's important for Porzingis to get his body in good shape.
At first, it may be good to expect. According to the Dallas team's homepage, Dallas began its first training session on the 1st, and Porgingis looked very good. Rick Carlisle, who watched him train, said, "He was very good. The first start was very good."
Porzingis himself is confident. After training, Porzingis said in an interview with ESPN, "I feel very good. I'm 100% confident. I feel like I'm in good shape since I started basketball."
"Dončić and I can mess up the opposing team's defense by playing two-to-two. When the switch is made, we can all use miss matches to score goals. "
Porzingis has signed a five-year, $ 158 million deal with Dallas this summer. A good idea of how high Dallas' expectations are for him. A new challenge in Dallas is to see if he will be able to meet his expectations for the new season.
