Far-Fetched Friday: Kristaps Porzingis will be an All-Star Next Season

09/09/2022

Once seen as one of the most promising young stars in the NBA, Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis has had injuries derail every one of his seasons since his rookie year. He had a great end to his season last year, however, after being traded to the Wizards from the Dallas Mavericks, averaging a stat line of 22/9/3. I believe Zinger will continue on the momentum he built to end last year, resulting in his second All-Star appearance, and first since 2018.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at the NFL goat and his impending retirement.

Outside of Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma, the Wizards don't really have much in the way of options on offense. As a result, Porzingis will be allowed more than his fair share of offensive touches. The main concern with KP has always been his inability to stay on the court. However, for the sake of an All-Star appearance, he really only needs to have a clean bill of health for the first half of the season. He managed to do so way back in 2018, so perhaps he's due for another clean start to the year. Considering his numbers while on the Wizards so far have been better than during his All-Star campaign (albeit with a small sample size of 17 games,) he's ripe to claim a spot among the NBA's elite, perhaps taking Jarrett Allen's spot from last year. While history has indicated Porzingis will miss significant time throughout the season, don't be surprised when he's having a career year and playing on the last day of the NBA's All-Star Weekend in 2023.

Considering Jeff Okudah was the third overall draft pick in 2020, his first two seasons in the NFL were quite poor to say the least. In fact, many people were already quick to throw around the word "bust" when mentioning his name. Towards the end of his rookie season, Okudah ranked dead last in yards allowed per route, and according...

Even before Chet Holmgren's season-ending injury, Banchero was the favorite to win the rookie of the year award, but I'm going to go a step further. I think Paolo Banchero will make the all-star team as a forward in the eastern conference. I am convinced he's a bonafide star. He can score, playmake, and I can tell the game is...

If there is one overarching theme that sports teach us, it is that life comes at you fast. And when I say fast, I mean really, really fast. Just ask Newcastle fans. After their financial takeover, it is possible they qualify for European football in the same decade where they played in the Championship. If they had told their fans...
