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


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.

Guys, I am devastated. I let you all down last year. It was right under my nose that UConn would win the championship, but I missed it due to poor data collection. I began last year's prediction by saying a team with eight losses would win March Madness, and in listing all the teams that qualified, I somehow missed...

A new season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of intriguing storylines. From massive traves and superstar uncertainty in the East to a West perhaps the deepest it has ever been, here is an early season NBA Power ranking.

It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
