There’s a lot to look forward to as an NBA fan in the upcoming 2019-20 season, especially with all the familiar faces in different places.
One of the most anticipated is undoubtedly the Dallas Mavericks debut and return of Kristaps Porzingis from almost a two-year layoff.
Mavericks fans should be extra excited, because earlier this week, Porzingis dropped two pictures on Instagram showing that his usual thin body is no longer there and in its place is a ripped muscle-bound athletic specimen that people naturally compared to Rocky Balboa’s boxing nemesis Ivan Drago.
Mavs director of athletic performance Jeremy Holsopple mentioned Kristaps put on a considereable amount of weight to look like this.
After being traded to the Mavs — Porzingis signed a five-year, $158 million deal to remain in Dallas alongside Luka Doncic who is sure to get a huge deal of his own.
