Kristaps Porzingis is the latest athlete to say his social media account was attacked. On Saturday night a tweet was sent from his account saying ‘Clippers’ with the smilie face emoji following it. The tweet of course sent Knicks and Clippers fans into a frenzy.
Porzingis was the fourth overall pick of the 2015 NBA draft to the Knicks and has been the speculation of trade rumours over the last few weeks. The 21-year-old skipped his exit meeting with team President Phil Jackson and General Manager Steve Mills in late April.
A representative for the Knicks said that Porzingis was sleeping when the tweet was sent out and Porzingis responded with his own comical response:
I would never tweet something like that. I dont even use that emoji smiley face. Cmon B ???????????? pic.twitter.com/EXmtej5qzn
