How Mavericks’ Kristaps Porzingis Is Staying In Shape

How is Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis staying in shape this offseason? He answered that very question during a recent Instagram live session.

“I have a little weight room here with a bike and stuff so I can do some cardio, and I do a little bit of boxing,” he said.

“I try to work on my boxing skills, too, so I have a little bag right here, a little [basketball] basket over here, too, so I can keep working on my game.

“Just trying to stay busy and stay in shape. We don’t know when we’re going to re-start everything, so I’m just making sure I do the max I can to just stay in shape and stay ready.”

This should come as no surprise, given that the Mavs forward is also a huge boxing fan.

“I love boxing,” he said. “I’ve always been a big fan of boxing and mixed martial arts, so I’m keeping myself entertained and doing a little bit of that myself here at home. And I’m a YouTube guy, so I’m on YouTube a lot just watching videos and learning new stuff.

“Like I said, just trying to keep myself busy. I kind of always been a big fan of Mike Tyson. And also, now with the MMA scene growing and Conor McGregor making it such a mainstream sport, I also became a big fan of MMA.

“That’s something I’d love to work on also in the offseason once I’m not playing, so we’ll see. I don’t know when, but I’ve always kind of been interested in the combat sports.”

How will Prozingis look when the NBA returns? Time will tell.
