Kristaps Porzingis (Once Again) Shoots A Sad Airball In Attempt To Woo Instagram Model

I'll go ahead and say this about the New York Knicks' young stud Kristaps Porzingis: The 22-year-old Latvian big man has lots of confidence and zero shame, because, for the second time in a few months, his name's popping up online for striking out with an Instagram model.


Making this story even better? Well, it's the exact same model, 18-year-old Croatian brunette Ines Nikic, who Porzingis had tried his luck with in early-June this year, giving up on his pursuit after he got word that the stunner was still only 17 years old. Now that Nikic is of legal age, though? Oh, you better believe Zinger went all-in on her once again... with the same unfortunate result.

Here's a tweet of the messages between Kristaps Porzingis and Ines Nikic, via Hoop Central's Twitter.

Now, nothing there that's too dismissive, other than the fact that Porzingis seems pretty hopeless in his attempt to get a picture from the 18-year-old beauty. Of course, when she finally does give in and send him something, his reaction is spot on: "G-ddamn girl."

While many of you might be thinking what I'm thinking, "well, how do we know he got shut down by her?" all indications lead to Kristaps still being thirsty, as Ines has yet to even follow the big man on Instagram, let alone give him much more attention than she already did with a simple pic.

In addition to that, let's not forget Ines Nikic master troll job on Porzingis in one of her captions of a photo of her laying out, typing: "Porzingod tryna smash." Damn, girl.

It's not the first, nor last time, a pro athlete will go try wooing an Instagram model via DM. And, based off of his social media history, hell, it's not going to be the last time Kristaps Porzingis tries sliding into those DMs — so, ladies, beware of "Zing, the DM King!"
