This season hasn’t exactly gone as planned for Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis.

His team is going to miss the playoffs yet again, they may trade his buddy Carmelo Anthony, and he’s enduring something of a sophomore slump.

When in doubt? Make googly eyes at an Instagram model. Porzingis put a few eyeball emojis in Instagram model Abigail Ratchford’s IG comments section Tuesday night and actually got a response. Ratchford responded with a kissing lips emoji, so that means they’re definitely now dating.

The Zinger would be a step up for Ratchford literally and figuratively as she once allegedly hooked up with Johnny Manziel.

Above is a slideshow gallery of Ratchford's hottest Instagram and Getty Images pics. Here is a link to her Instagram.
