Everybody wants to see Zion Williamson play, but so far through three games, he’s only been on the floor for a total of 29 minutes.
The way the New Orleans Pelicans have handled the minutes of rookie forward Zion Williamson has been the talk of the NBA as the league returned to play in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Fans have been watching him with intense focus as he made his way up and down the court and people have not been liking what they have being seeing in the Pelicans superstar.
In facts, some fans have taken to Twitter and called Zion fat.
“It’s very tough, to be honest, because as soon as I start to break that sweat, I look over and that horn is for me and I have to come out the game,” Williamson said Sunday. “Also, when I do catch the flow of the game, like I said, that horn goes off and it’s for me.”
Williamson said he’s not getting frustrated because “that doesn’t help the situation,” even though each loss hurts the team playoff chances.
“It’s still fun but I guess, like you said, it’s not to that full extent as y’all are used to seeing,” Williamson said. “I’m a competitor, I want to stay on the court. When I’m coming out of the game, my competitive side of me that I want to stay in. I guess that does affect the fun a little bit, but not too much.”
