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!!!!

What's highest fg% for a rookie averaging 15+ ppg? Shaq? Wilt?

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 12 February 2020 04:50 (one year ago) link

I can answer that question, Granny.
Deandre Ayton! 58.5%
Buck Williams 58.2
Zion 57.4
Shaq 56.2
Chris Webber 55.2

In his rookie season in the ABA, Artis Gilmore averaged 24 ppg on 59.8%

1st I remember being aware of Artis was in Guiness Book for highest career FG%
