Zion Williamson’s Game Plan is a Concern for the Pistons
There have been questions raised about Zion Williamson’s game plan since he has not been consistent with his habits, especially his diet.
Furthermore, he has only played a total of 114 matches out of 308, which is another big concern for the Pistons. On top of that, he missed the entire third season of his career while playing 24 and 61 games in the first and second years of his career.
There were many trade rumors during the 2023 NBA draft. The Pelicans were expected to acquire Scoot Henderson and trade Zion Williamson to the Trail Blazers. However, these rumors can out to be false.
Recently, Zion had a chit-chat with the former player Gilbert Arenas and told him that he is not missing the games intentionally. He said:
“I’m a hooper.”
“When I’m sitting on the sidelines watching my teammates in certain games they’re losing, I know if I was out there, I could change the outcome. What I want people to know about me is I just want to hoop. I want to be out there. Nobody wants to just sit on the sideline. I think that’s what I want people to understand. I don’t want to be on the sideline. Y’all think I want to sit over there hurt? I don’t.”
