Kristaps Porzingis made his first ever talk show appearance on Thursday on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon was amazed by Porzingis’ height, age and shoe size, but the highlight was when he asked him about being called a “unicorn” by Kevin Durant.
“At first I was a little confused. It’s like what is it? A horse with a ponytail? What does it mean.”
That’s spectacular. While Porzingis obviously possessed intimate knowledge of rap culture being called a magical creature completely stumped him. Especially the confusion between a horn and a ponytail. Especially since this was before “unicorn” was an overused term for special basketball player.
Anyway, watch the entire clip. Porzingis looks like a lock to do many more talk show appearances in the future.
