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

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."

I've heard that success has a thousand fathers, but failure is an orphan. zion is a huge success and therefore it stands to reason that he could have a much larger number of fathers.

Against Virginia Tech he's playing like he's not very interested in playing unless he sees a chance to add to his highlight reel. Otherwise he's just marking time out there. nagl, imo.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 30 March 2019 03:34 (three months ago) link

idk since i turned this on he's had a sick block on a play where the guy thought he beat him as well as a sweet drive and layup

call all destroyer, Saturday, 30 March 2019 03:40 (three months ago) link

yup. sick blocks go into the highlight reel. sweet drives, too. he probably had about 8 or 9 really excellent plays in this game to add to his collection. it's not like he played badly. he didn't. he played more like he knew he could turn on the jets if he had to and instantly make up the difference between being fully engaged and a bit lackadaisical.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 30 March 2019 04:15 (three months ago) link

dude you are so wrong. I haven’t seen a player with zion’s motor in a long time

really? are you watching the NCAA tournament? the players may not be NBA talent, but, good lord, they burn through energy like four year olds on a sugar rush. they all have motors.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 30 March 2019 04:25 (three months ago) link

ok, a serious NBA prospect. there is absolutely no question about his motor — it’s one of his biggest strengths imo

looking for any semblance of what you were on about and found nothing

OK. But I took a look at the box score a minute ago. He played all 40 minutes. He had off-the-chart offensive numbers: 11-14, with 1-2 from 3pt. Also 3 blocks. Exciting stuff!

But he only took one FT, had 1 assist, and for a big man 6 rebounds in 40 minutes is not exactly bad, but not an indicator of extraordinary effort. This kind of supports my impression that he's a human highlight machine, but between highlights he was not exactly dogging it last night, but not really putting out his full effort either - which is what I thought I said to begin with.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 30 March 2019 17:29 (three months ago) link

1) he wasn't getting fouled because the defense was just getting out of the way once he was in position.
2) in the 6 minutes i watched he tossed a couple of great passes to open shooters, but they missed because the rest of the team sucks. saw a dude shoot an airball *past* the basket on a corner 3.

he didn't seem to be in great rebounding position at times but i'm not sure it was an effort issue.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 30 March 2019 18:14 (three months ago) link

playing all 40 minutes is pretty taxing I’m sure...

k3vin k., Saturday, 30 March 2019 20:04 (three months ago) link

if he were *really* trying he'd have had more than three fouls, smh

Yes.

Zion's college team lost today. Before that college team plays any more games, Zion will enter the NBA draft and be drafted at #1. Then, come late October, if he's healthy, he'll begin to play NBA games for his new team.
