The New York Knicks young sensation Kristaps Porzingis wore this white Knicks home jersey during a four-game homestand in February of the 2016-17 NBA season. Porzingis, a second-year starter for the Knicks in 2016-17, quickly emerged as a bright spot for New York after being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Porzingis first wore this jersey on February 4th, 2017, during a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden. Porzingis recorded nine points, eight rebounds, and three blocked shots in the Knicks 111-104 defeat to the eventual Eastern Conference Champions. Porzingis’ next game in this jersey came on February 8th, when the Los Angeles Clippers made the trek to Madison Square Garden. The 7’3” Porzingis scored 27 points on 4-7 three-point shooting for the Knicks, adding six rebounds, two assists, and two steals in the Knicks hard-fought 119-115 loss.

Porzingis wore this jersey again on February 10th, when he scored 17 points against the Denver Nuggets at MSG. Despite Carmelo Anthony’s 33-point effort, the Knicks fell 131-123 to the Nuggets in a hyper-competitive game. Porzingis’ final game in this jersey came during the Knicks 94-90 victory over Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs on February 12th, 2017. Porzingis scored 16 points, with four blocks, seven rebounds, and a game-high +20 plus/minus rating. The Latvian big man averaged 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game for the Knicks in 2016-17, cementing his status as one of the best young backcourt players in the NBA.

This white Knicks home jersey has “NEW YORK” sewn across the chest in orange, blue, and gray tackle twill. Porzingis’ number “6” is sewn on the chest and back in orange mesh over blue and white tackle twill. “PORZINGIS” is sewn across the back shoulders in blue tackle twill. A NBA logo patch is sewn on the back of the jersey, while a gold two-time NBA champions tag is sewn on the back collar. A Knicks “70th Anniversary” patch is affixed to the right chest. A blue tag printed with “Once A Knick, Always A Knick” is sewn on the front left tail below an Adidas size “2XL” and NBA Authentics tag. A “Length +2”” flag is attached to the Adidas tag, which has “2-12-17 MSG v San Antonio Spurs” written in black marker. This jersey comes with a LOA from Steiner Sports (244999) authenticating the use of the jersey for the Spurs game. Additionally, this jersey has been photo matched to the February 4th, 8th, 10th, and 12th games by Resolution Photomatching, who have provided a LOA (425383).
