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

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!!!!

Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson was forced out of Wednesday night's game against rival North Carolina after just 36 seconds with what Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski called a "mild knee sprain."

hes gonna average like 20-7-3 on 60% shooting but prob miss some games cause hes not in great shape and has never experienced "the rigors of an nba season"

coudl see him leading the league in steals hunting those fast break dunks

its true he is very good at steals

shd get many blocks too one wld think

lag∞n, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 16:51 (one month ago) link

woudl think he'd be able to average 1.5 blocks per game pretty easy but he may need to stay planted NBA players are smart at drawing fouls.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 16:53 (one month ago) link

he so explosive he cld wait for them to shoot and still get there, may take some time tho

Trying to decide how high I should draft him in fantasy

The downside risk is vanishingly small compared to the upside potential. I'd take him first for fantasy, higher than Kawhi rn, if only because Kawhi regulates his output and will sit out regular season games to give his body a break. Zion is young, durable, and eager to dazzle the league every night.

A is for (Aimless), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:08 (one month ago) link

im thinking 2nd/3rd round but no way i draft him over kawhi. depends where my draft position is but its pretty rare a rookie ends up in the top 40 fantasy rankings after a full season

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:20 (one month ago) link

Where would you have taken Shaq in his rookie year? O'Neal averaged 23.4 points on 56.2% shooting, 13.9 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks per game for his rookie season.

A is for (Aimless), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:25 (one month ago) link

idk

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:29 (one month ago) link

Zion isn't gonna avg anything close to those numbers cmon now

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 19:07 (one month ago) link

Shaq had 3 yrs of NCAA experience leading up to his rookie year

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 19:10 (one month ago) link

I doubt he'll average 13.5 rebounds, but Zion is going to get the ball in his hands nearly every time down the floor and his point production will be high. With his off-the-charts athleticism his steals and blocks will be high, too. Rookie or not, the Pellies will be built around him from day one.

A is for (Aimless), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 19:17 (one month ago) link

21/10/5 would be enough for ROY and realistic i think depending on how beat up he gets

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 15 October 2019 19:35 (one month ago) link

If they play Zion more than 35 minutes per game then they are incompetent

Matt Armstrong, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 20:51 (one month ago) link

0 blks in 4 preseason games. You gotta pump those numbers up. Those are rookie numbers in this racket.

New Orleans rookie Zion Williamson will undergo further evaluations on right knee today and possibly tomorrow, but the organization is relieved the forward has avoided any major longterm issues, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

good but like... this is concerning

was reading a thing saying he has knee valgus too

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 16:08 (one month ago) link

A severe injury has been ruled out for Zion Williamson’s right knee, but he is expected to miss period of weeks to start regular season, league sources tell ESPN. Pels are clearly treating injury with an abundance of caution but there’s no shortage of confidence on full recovery.
