Carmelo Anthony believes Kristaps Porzingis is the future leader of the New York Knicks.
Over 15 games this season, Porzingis is averaging 13.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
“He’s going to lead this organization long after I’m retired,” Anthony said. “Hopefully we can hoist one or two [championship trophies] before that happens.”
Anthony said he and Porzingis are "building" their relationship.
“I'm here to help him and use my experience and help him get his feet wet, and he's doing a pretty good job,” Anthony said.
