Kristaps Porzingis quickly solidified himself as one of the best up-and-coming basketball players in the NBA after his spectacular rookie season with the New York Knicks. Now, with the season about to start and Porzingis predicted to be one of the star players of this year, it's no surprise that adidas Basketball has scooped the Latvian sensation as the newest member of the Three Stripe family.

The Knicks' second-year forward joins the ranks of an adidas basketball roster highlighted by NBA All-Stars James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors, 2015 Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves and 2016 WNBA Finals MVP Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks.

Ditching Nike Basketball for the Three Stripes, Kristaps will be seen this season lacing up the adidas Basketball newest silhouette, Crazy Explosive, in a variety of colors for the 2016-17 NBA season. He will play a collaborative and instrumental role in driving performance insights to create new footwear and apparel, while also being featured in upcoming brand campaigns, activations and global athlete tours.

Kristaps Porzingis' second NBA season starts tonight when his New York Knicks take on the defending champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers, in the NBA season opener.
