Xion’s champion Zion is the proud son of heaven. In the show, the future star dunks four times, scored 11 points and 3 rebounds, but only played for 9 minutes because of a touch with his opponent on his left knee and did not appear again. Today, the Pelicans announced that Zion will no longer play in the summer league.
The reason for not playing is "left knee contusion", the PelicansGeneral Manager David Griffin said that the injury will not have any impact on Zion's future. The Pelicans only decided to not let Zion participate in the remaining games of the Summer League out of caution. Although the official calibre of the Pelicans appears to be relatively relaxed, the fans' hearts still sigh: Zion will not become the glass man, will it?
After James, Zion is the only player who has received such attention before entering the league. Many people believe that Zion's future is even better than James, with strong physical fitness and comprehensive skills, and he locked the champion early before the draft. In the eyes of many fans, Zion, whose play style and body are quite similar to James, will become the next James and the new king of the league!
Now the question is here. Whether Zion can become the next James is not important, but he must not become the next Oden. Oden, the top pick of the year, is also considered a rare insider god for many years.Beast, the draft that year overwhelmed Durant to become the No. 1 pick, but injuries completely ruined Oden, not only did not play decent numbers in the NBA, but also retired early, which became a big regret for the league. Therefore, before Zion becomes the next James, it is best to learn to protect his body and not become the next Oden.
James entered the league at the age of 19, and basically did not suffer major injuries. This is related to his good physical fitness, his style of play, and his great attention to protecting himself. Since Zion entered the field of view of the fans, the most intuitive feeling is that the physical fitness is superb. The weight of nearly 300 kg can be so flexible and the bounce can be so excellent. It is really amazing. But the problem is coming. Zion's knees must have admitted the huge pressure. He must pay attention to his knees. This is the foundation of his life in the NBA.
