Many New York Knicks fans will never live down the moment they reacted angrily to their team drafting Kristaps Porzingis with the number four pick in the 2015 draft. 

One fan, in particular, will forever be known for his meltdown which was caught on camera. Do you remember the kid who went viral for his teary-eyed reaction at the Barclays Center? 

I'm sure everybody does. He was dubbed the "Crying Knicks Fan" and posed for the now infamous "crying selfie" and had the internet in a frenzy for a period of time.  

Of course, Porzingis proved the young fan and the entire Knicks faithful wrong by showcasing his undeniable talent throughout his rookie season.

So, it was only right that the two would come face to face eventually, and they recently did so at an offseason camp where, amongst other things, a one-on-one took place between them.

The 10-year-old youngster, named Jordan, gave up more than two feet in his battle with the 7-foot-3 Latvian and the duel went as you would expect. 

Maybe KP saw it as a chance to take out his frustrations on Jordan and prove that he hasn't forgotten about all those that doubted him on that draft night in New York last year.

The big man showed no mercy as he cruelly blocked the kid's multiple shot attempts and ended matters with a dunk. 

Jordan showed he had no hard feelings as he posted the video on his Instagram page with the caption "Dream of a lifetime playing against my idol".

It shows how far Porzingis has come in just one year in the league and how much of a star he's become in the Big Apple. 

With the Knicks adding the likes of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah to their roster in a busy offseason, expectations for the team will rise and the 20-year-old should be in for a more enjoyable campaign.
