New York Knicks head coach David Fizdale isn’t going to waste any time getting to know Kristaps Porzingis. 

During an appearance on ESPN’s coverage of the 2018 NBA Draft Combine, Fizdale went through his “step-by-step” plan to forge a relationship with the 22-year-old.

“I won’t skip a step,” Fizdale said, via’s Ian Begley. ”I’ll spend a ton of time with he and his family. I want to hear their experience and what they see going forward for Kristaps, and how I can interject and help him in any way become what I think he can be, which is an MVP-caliber player.”
