Kristaps Porzingis Reflects On Time With Mavericks Prior To 2024 NBA Finals

All of the drama will be centered around Kyrie Irving and his return to Boston. However, there is another revenge factor on the table with the 2024 NBA Finals. Does Kristaps Porzingis have beef with the Mavericks and Luke Doncic?

The Celtics big man spoke about his tenure in Dallas during NBA Finals media day.

“Not all of it was like not good. We had some good moments. We had some decent moments,” Porzingis said. “Overall I think it didn’t work for both sides. It wasn’t perfect. But like I would say, everything, teammates, locker room, I know at that time there were some rumors there’s like something in the locker room. It was never like that. It’s all just noise at the end.

“It wasn’t just perfect for us playing together. It didn’t work out, that’s it. We moved on. There’s no ill will from their side, for sure from my side. I don’t think there should be. Just didn’t work out. But I have nothing but love for Dallas and for the teammates and for everybody there.”

Porzingis also chimed in on his relationship with Doncic:

“It’s good. It’s always been good,” Porzingis said of his relationship with Doncic. “As I said, he’s one of the best players in the league, in the world. It will be a tough challenge for us to try to stop him. Just following his career when he came in the league, already made a huge impact. I had the opportunity to play with him for a couple years, get to know him. Just knowing what type of person he is, what type of player he is, his mindset, he’s a special player. We have a big challenge ahead of us competing against somebody like that.”

The Celtics are going to need the 7-foot-2 Unicorn from Latvia. Boston didn’t list anybody on the injury report heading into the Finals despite the fact that Porzingis hasn’t played since the first round of the playoffs against Miami. Time will tell if Porzingis can get his revenge on his former team.
