NBA Star Kristaps Porzingis has yet to suit up for his new Dallas Mavericks squad, it he’s already had an offseason full of turmoil as a Mav.
The latest controversy: his involvement in a fight in or around a bar in his native country of Latvia that left him with a gash above his eye and a torn shirt (it looks expensive too. Damn.).
The video appears to be taken after the incident took place, but Porzingis isn’t finished showing his frustration, as he pushes a woman out from in front of him to continue yelling at someone out-of-frame. Someone who appears to be a police offer is seen trying to calm the situation.
According to TMZ Sports, Porzingis was celebrating his recent trade when a group of Russian fans, upset about his switch to the Mavericks, attacked him.
This incident comes just months after he was traded to the Mavs from the Knicks, and also shortly after a woman made allegations of rape against the 23-year-old. The Knicks, Mavericks, and the NBA we’re all reportedly aware of the allegations while the trade was being made.
