    Only a preseason game but in 27 minutes Zion Williamson had 29 points and several monster dunks,

    More impressive was the 4th quarter comeback. They were down 22, and the unit of Hart, Jackson, Alexander-Walker, Okafor and Moore came all the way back and won it.

    I was skeptical when the drafted Jackson but he looks like a gamer.

    @Bengal B The guy that is impressing me is Hart. He seemed like a throw-in on the AD trade, but that guy can flat out shoot.

    i was just watching youtube zion dunks.

    i have come to a conclusion. only one dunker in history can compete with the nuclear ferocity of zion. shaq. lebron has an idea of how to dunk, as does shawn kemp, but only shaq and zion have the atomic superhero power of titanic destruction.

    young shaq, when he got the ball in open court off a steal or breakaway, it was like, hold everything, stop the rotation of the earth, everyone look, this is gonna be a absolute thunderhammer. it might smash the goal off its moorings, or shatter everything.

    goals are stronger now, they dont break so much, but zion is like that as well. that guy can SMASH

    and what kind of lunatic doesnt enjoy a superpowered megaton bomb jam?

    GO PELICANS

    ESPN reporting Zion had surgery on a torn meniscus today, out 6-8 weeks.

    dangit i am worried about this guy weighing 280 and flying around like he weighs 100 pounds lighter. can a human knee stand it? this sort of athleticism and size is so unprecedented. i know what a meniscus is, its the bit that squishes and kinda pads your kneebones against each other. maybe this guy is flying to saturn and then the landing is too much for organic materials!

    cmon, let be healthy zion i want some entertainment!

    Hope he doesn't become another Anthony Day-to-Davis.

    He needs to lose some weight. When LeBron first came into the league he weighed about 270. Then he lost 30 pounds and was just as physically dominant,

    watching the end of a close game here vs the raptors. if zion was in he would have made the difference. he would be 12/15 shooting, with 2 points and 9 boards.

    still they look good.

    i dont know much about this okafor, but he doent look great. i hope hayes takes his place.
