Dallas Mavericks superstar Kristaps Porzingis revealed he is playing in the postseason with a championship attiude.

Porzingis said if a player wants to win it all, they should have a winning attitude.

“I try to hype myself up that I’m already a champ. I’m supposed to be there. I’m supposed to win. That’s kind of my mindset when I’m doing my thing.

Whenever I get a win it doesn’t really do anything for me. I’m supposed to do this. We’re supposed to win. Doesn’t do much for me, doesn’t raise my confidence or anything like that.

I feel like to win it all you have to the attitude to want to win it all and believe that you deserve to be there and to win it all,” Porzingis told reporters after the game, via Ben Golliver of The Washington Post.

The Mavericks are tied with the Los Angeles Clippers after Game 2 (1-1). Game 3 will take place on Friday.
