Kristaps Porzingis’ end goal is ‘to be able to win a championship,’ believes Dallas is a place he can do it

Mavs, Kristaps Porzingis

Dallas Mavericks power forward Kristaps Porzingis has one goal with the Mavs and that is to win an NBA championship.

After being part of the New York Knicks, a franchise which has been a walking disaster for years, Porzingis believes Dallas is a place where he can contend for championships in the future and avoid outside distractions — something which wasn’t possible in New York since the Knicks are run by people who don’t know what winning basketball is about.

“My end goal is to be able to win a championship,” Porzingis said, via Tim MacMahon of ESPN. “That is what is on my mind, so I just want to be in a place where everything is done towards making that possible and there’s no other stuff, no other distractions. I need more time, honestly, but I believe this can be the place.”

Kristaps Porzingis becomes a restricted free agent this summer. The Mavs are expected to offer Porzingis a long-term deal which will keep him in Dallas for the prime of his career.

KP has fully recovered from the ACL tear he suffered last season. The next time we see the talented 7-footer on the basketball floor will be during the 2019-20 preseason schedule.
