Last 11 games, Russ is shooting 55% from the field and taking only 1.4 threes per game(!!) for 36 ppg

Spreading the floor with no one in the paint ala Milwaukee with Giannis is doing wonders for Russ, ive never seen him play smarter basketball. He was frustrating as fuck in the first few months, but recently hes been awesome.

If anyone in Houston is mean to RoCo at any point for any reason I will find them.

Only 1 triple double though smh.

I think this might be the best stretch of basketball I've seen him play. Obviously it's hugely helpful to have all that spacing + some teams still doubling Harden but he's finally found a way to change his game where he can actually scale up with better talent around him without putting a ceiling on his team and doing it while being more efficient than ever.

The box scores were just as good though! Not that there were a ton of Zion doubters or anything but they were out there, and they were dumb.

It didn’t seem like many people doubted him coming into the NBA. I’m sure there were some, but most of his doubters seemed to be from when he went to Duke. Very few people thought he’d continue dominating like that after high school.

This is mostly just dunking on D-Unit for being an idiot about him. Everyone else here and about 90% of draft people realized how good he was.

Also Luka keeps getting 2 week injuries in his leg, so he could be injury prone too.

The amount of strain his joints/tendons/ligaments are under is a scary thought. I hope there’s a plan in place but I don’t even know what the plan would be because his physical profile is so unprecedented. The first thought is try to have him lose some weight but pretty much all of it is muscle, it doesn’t look like he’s carry much if any sloppy weight. My only guess would be to get him on the pliability program with bands and shit like that. Just hopefully not with that lunatic Alex Guerrero.

Ideally the league would have these teams and nicknames:

Utah Raptors
Toronto Whatevers
New Orleans Jazz
Washington Bullets
Seattle Supersonics
Oklahoma City Bombers

I think it’s a fair concern, especially because of his knee issues. That being said, if he keeps a good training regimen and good people around him, he should be fine. He wouldn’t be the first ultra athletic NBA player.

The fact that Jazz fans are mostly pasty white racist mormons makes this all the more egregious. Just not a droplet of culture in that city.

There’s hasn’t been a guy with his explosion at that size. He’s like 6-6 280, it is unprecedented. That is just a ton of weight pounding on his every move and with that much force it is a definite cause for concern.

Aaron Nelson will be the low key MVP behind Williamson

The major issue is the most egregious offender in the NBA is the eighth most valuable sports team in sports. So it is probably going to have stay a silly novelty.

Unless Jack Nicholson can get some crazy group of billionaires together to make a man made lake and incorporate it.
