Kristaps Porzingis was asked if he drew optimism from the idea that so many Eastern Conference stars, including Anthony, have defected to the Western Conference this season via free agency or trade. "I think that's kind of a losing mentality if you're hoping for the conference to get worse so you can make the playoffs," he said. "No matter what's going on in the East or West, we have to try to be the best team we can."

Kristaps Porzingis reflects on his time with Carmelo Anthony: "He was a great leader for us. He was a great mentor for me. He was like a big brother to me. So I'm really thankful for him being around me. I have nothing but respect for Carmelo and I wish him the best in the future." Porzingis added that playing without Anthony will create different challenges this season. "He took a lot of pressure off of everybody. We all understand that. He was always the No. 1 focal point for the other team," he said. "I realize that. And now I'm going to be one of those guys that other teams are going to focus on."
