There's a term in basketball called a "grown man rebound," but this is so far beyond a grown man rebound I dont even know what to call it. MERCY ZION pic.twitter.com/32jZEgp3Ni

Unless he gets ACL surgery and won't be able to play again until the 2020-21 season, he's still the consensus #1 pick.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Zion Williamson, the tremendous superstar basketball player from Duke. His injury isn't surprising though once you realize Obama was at the game. Everywhere Obama goes nothing but disappointment and pain follows!!!! Sad!!!!

if so, what's the endgame there? i get that they would do that to sell tickets but if he's not in there for a month do Pelicans execs just throw up their hands and go "aw shucks, ya got us"? seems like a definite way to alienate your fanbase for years.

The fans will come back because Zion will be there.

definitely getting the impression that there's more to the story but the Pels may not know exactly what it is yet

mb theyre trying to get him to lose weight

that seems likely as well. they are all prob scared out of their minds to be the one to clear him to play

Zion just as a physical being is very 🤔

Matt Armstrong, Tuesday, 17 December 2019 20:00 (one month ago) link

seemed like the Pels got really screwed last night by a clear shot-clock violation that wasn't called and would have left them with 2-3 seconds left to inbound from halfcourt and try a GW shot. seemed like Gentry was completely oblivious but Antonio Daniels was freaking out on the broadcast.

championship winning vibration (Spottie), Thursday, 26 December 2019 17:50 (three weeks ago) link

I think they need to be open to the possibility that the way Zion runs is actually good for him

Matt Armstrong, Thursday, 26 December 2019 18:12 (three weeks ago) link

Specialists at P3 and elsewhere note that it's easier to repair such issues in younger players than older ones. One veteran Western Conference scout says recent reports for prospects have often included the phrase "tight hips."

"At first, I would kind of laugh at it," the scout says. "But now I notice it more and more often, especially when they move laterally while defending. A lot of these guys can't get low to the ground."

Ok so are there any theories as to why young guys today have this issue?
