Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still in on Kristaps Porzingis. Dirk 2.0. The Latvian Larry Bird. The 19-year-old phenom who has a flames rap anthem before he’s even drained his first of 208 three-pointers this season. I’ve been bumping the Porzingis song nonstop all weekend. Song is absolute 🔥🔥🔥. #Knickstaps baby.

But I’m not going to sit here and say I’m not a little bit jeal of the Magic right now. We’re not even 24 hours into Summer League and Mario Hezonja has already taken the league by storm. The Croatian J.R. Smith is out here just out here doing the damn thing. Absolutely electric. Most confident player on the court, and it’s not even close. Hezonja is out here wearing that #23 legitimately thinking he’s Michael Jordan. And somewhere deep in a BDSM sex chamber in West Hollywood, Rihanna is arising from a deep slumber. Her sensors are going off… there’s a new Pipe in town.

And he’s out here draining game-winning threes with the confidence of a young Kobe…

Throwing it home right in your grill…

and staring dudes down with that ruthless Jordan-esque swagger…

But of course, you can’t be the Croatian J.R. Smith if you don’t have a few fuck ups to balance things out. How about two straight missed dunks to cap off the afternoon…

I love it. I’m so in on Super Mario. Guy just plays with reckless abandon, throwing himself all over the court in a Westbrook-ian “I’m going to push the boundaries of my athleticism” type of way. Throw him onto a young Magic roster with Oladipo, Payton, Gordon, Vucevic, and Harris and that’s suddenly a really nice little core in Orlando.

… That is until Super Mario fucks Joe Budden’s girlfriend and take a picture of her ass, drives a $450,000 armored truck around NYC, parties with Rihanna before a playoff game, asks to rework a Twitter girl’s plumbing, and almost submarines the team’s playoff run by cold clocking someone… twice.
