Breaking: Zion Williamson’s high school coach (Lee Sartor) just joined us live and said Zion will not be returning to Duke nor will he ask for a trade.

In communication with Zion’s family, they’ve said Zion will be honored to be drafted by the @PelicansNBA.




So time to move on to another draft angle, people.

I'm loving this. It's nice to have a player of such a high caliber proud to be a part of this team.

Of course he isn't going back to Duke. This shite that the national media is trying to spin is fricking hilarious

Yeah but Ramona Shelburne won't believe it until he signs with an agent.

Yeah it was always ridiculous.

If you just map out the money it makes no sense for him to go back to school, play overseas, or try and force a trade.

The goal in the NBA is to get to the third contract. To be young and good enough to get a massive fourth. Taking years off reduces your career earning potential and introduces a ton of added risk.

Is a better statement than

quote:

happy to play for Pels


It implies humility and self awareness.

I wasnt being critical. i was just saying that the headline doesnt convey just how positive of a comment that is.

ETA I don't really care. Critiquing doesn't necessarily imply being negative. I get your point. But this is a textbook example of being critical.

Zion is pushing Jrue for boyfriend status already.

Or Windhorst. Richard Jefferson kept trying to set him straight and he just kept saying “we’ll see, we’ll see”. Almost seemed like he thought Zion going back was the most likely outcome.

How was it critical? It was just saying how humble of a person Zion is to not presume he would be the number 1 pick. It was purely positive and complementary.

No surprise. National NBA media is toxic. But they are fueled by a large majority of 'casual' NBA fans who think it's perfectly fine to have a player-driven league where big market teams are the Globetrotters glorifying themselves at the expense of the small market Generals.

F' anyone who says having Zion in New Orleans is 'bad for the league.' It's quite the opposite.
