The last thing any NBA team wants to see in the offseasons is one of its top players involved in an off-court incident. That's what appears to have happened with Kristaps Porzingis of the Dallas Mavericks.

This afternoon, a video surfaced on social media featuring a bloodied Porzingis with a crowd of people on the street in his home country of Latvia. He is visibly angry, and can be seen shoving a young woman out of the way.

Porzingis appears to be yelling something at a group of people, but it is unclear what he said, considering he is speaking Latvian. Authorities are on the scene, and Porzingis is seen speaking with them.

The full clip can be seen below.

Obviously, this is a bad look for the 7-foot-3 "Unicorn," who has not played in an NBA game since February 2018 when he torn his ACL. Porzingis was dealt from the New York Knicks to the Dallas Mavericks in the middle of this season. A poster on the Dallas Mavericks' Reddit has some alleged details behind what was going on in the video.

Expect more details on this Porzingis confrontation to come out soon. We'll update you when they do.
