Zion Williamson will be one of the main speculations for NBA fans in the next year until he steps onto the court for the first time: essentially, they want on their teams what we have on our team. Previously this week on ESPN’s “The Jump”, Scottie Pippen suggested that Zion Williamson “shut it down” the rest of this year in order to preserve his health for the 2019 NBA Draft (we all know that he’s a lock for first pick at this point).
Zion didn’t like that much! When encountered about the prospect after Saturday’s win against Virginia, Williamson vehemently denied any idea of doing so:
I can’t just stop playing. I’d be letting my teammates down. I’d be letting Coach K down. I’d be letting a lot of people down.
If I was going to sit out, I wouldn’t have gone to college. I’m thankful that Coach K gave me the opportunity.Zion Williamson
Well, that’s great news for us and not-so-great news for literally everybody else. Man, this team is special.
