After pissing off Kristaps Porzingis, Knicks coach David Fizdale reaches out to his injured star to make things right

“He’s working his tail off. I think how he took it was that people thought he wasn’t busting his hump, he took it personally, it got to him that people would think that,” Fizdale said. “And he’s really, this guy has been a terror on his workouts. I think that’s what it was in response to. So I think maybe when he heard me say, ‘Hey, we’re taking it slow’ and all of that stuff, that’s what we’re doing but at the same time he don’t want people thinking that he’s not busting his hump, because he’s killing it.”
