Zion Williamson remains out of the NBA action. His list of injuries only keeps increasing rather than decreasing. The Zion Williamson situation has prompted comments from various former players. Charles Barkley has shown concern about the situation and has even doled out some weight-loss-related advice. There has been harsher criticism too, and one came from Kevin Garnett himself.

Zion Williamson’s leaping ability has been well-documented for many years. His trademark dunks, like swirling the ball behind the back and going for a rim-racking finish, are always invoking the highest aesthetics of modern basketball. The video by Ball is Life shows Williamson’s pregame warmup dunk during his high school days. In this video, his prowess is on full display, and can’t even be summed up in words.

However, this didn’t impress The Big Ticket. The former NBA champion is more concerned about this sort of action in an NBA game. This is why in his caption, he wrote: “Hey big fella….I wanna see this next year…in real life… Fux these videos, big fella”. In his Instagram story, the former Celtics champion is addressing the Pelicans’ Forward, asking him to perform such herculean dunks in an NBA game.

Huge 2023-24 season for Zion Williamson

The New Orleans Pelicans are patiently waiting for their franchise player to become a regular feature in the lineup. Williamson played 29 games last season, 61 in his sophomore year, and just 24 in his rookie year. This means that he has missed higher than 50% of the games in his career. But when he plays, he lives up to the hype.

The Pels won 17 and lost 12 with the bruising forward on the floor. At one point, they were second in the Western Conference after lodging higher than 55% wins. After he got injured, the Pelicans’ season derailed. From being a top-three team, they had to fight for a Play-in spot.

When it comes to the Duke Alum, it is not a question of whether he is a top-tier player. Williamson indeed has a persona of a superstar player. He averages close to 26 points in 114 games. The Forward had a career-high 3.6 assists per game average last season and has grabbed seven rebounds per game in his brief career. He has dazed the NBA world with his terrific finishes and relentless drive to play inside. KG has been one of the grittiest to play the game, so he expects a lot from the Young Star.

Will KG’s words act as an inspiration? Is it not just about the weight of the Pelicans Star? Has he picked up injuries that he has no control over even if he alters his weight?
