Looks like shopping for a girlfriend on Instagram is a little different than shopping for furniture. Even for a professional athlete.
The New York Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis tried it with Croatian model Ines Nikic recently and it didn’t go so well for the 7’3″ Latvian hoops star. Porzingis scoped her out on Instagram and left her a smiley face emoji with heart eyes, only to be embarrassingly alerted by another commenter that Nikic was only born in 1999, which would make her about 17 or 18-years-old.
And it got even more humiliating when Nikic got wind that Porzingis was trying to flirt with her. She ended up punking him by posting a pic of her kissing another dude with a caption that read: “Kristaps who? Are you sleeping peacefully, Kristaps Porzingis?”
Ouch! Maybe he should try a more face-to-face approach to picking up women. At least he wouldn’t have to worry about getting shot down in front of millions of people.
But enough about Kristaps…
