TJ McConnell has 9 steals at halftime.

That's gotta be some kind of record.

The Pels absolutely embarrassed the Clippers last night. No one on LAC could stop Zion from driving and Ingram was making ridiculous contested shots (that's not going to happen every night). What Zion was doing last night is what I was ranting about LeBron doing during his early Cavs years (not comparing the 2 at all). LeBron was too passive for my taste and I feel like he could have scored at will, off of the dribble, against anyone in the league. I knew Zion had good ball control "for his size," but I don't think people realize that he's way above average when it comes to driving and passing.

What's crazy to me... their main 3 were all born after I graduated HS. (ok, I'm old... they are 23, 23, and 20) I'm also still very high on Jaxson Hayes. He's still 20 as well and was incredibly raw coming into the league. He's a ridiculous athlete, with a great attitude and comes from a family with pro football connections. Compared to most elite kids coming out of HS, he didn't fly around the scene like they did. Kind of a late bloomer.

He's obviously young and raw and was always going to take time to develop but as of a month or so ago, he felt like a lost cause.

But in the last 5 games, he's 24 of 27 from the field and making plays on defense.

Since we're talking Pels today
Zion Williamson is averaging 28.4 PPG with a 65.0% FG pct over his last 15 games.

He's the first player to average at least 28 PPG while shooting 65% or better over any 15-game span since Karl Malone in 1989.

In his second year.....nope. his 5th year I'll admit it. He'll never be the #1 on a championship contender so I'll stick to my guns. Let me see a mid range game outside of his amazing dunking ability.

How is this sticking to your guns when you're claim is that he'd be a bust? :lol:

It looks like you've already conceded while also saying you're sticking to your guns. Oops!

All he does is dunk!!

Go back and look, I've said he'd never be more than Shawn Kemp. A great dunker that couldn't lead a team to a championship

Sure, let's go back and look:

No, you said he'd be a bust. Also... How long do you guys think it'll take George to realize that Zion at 20 years old is wayyyyyyyy better than the absolute best version of Shawn Kemp?

If I had your time and energy to look up supporting statements that fit what you want it to say I'd be 20 years old too. I'm sure there are multiple times I said he was the next kemp....but keep posting out of context. That's what we love about you

So your direct quote saying he'd be a bust is out of context? :lol:


Can someone explain to George what "context" means.

2 years in the league doesn't anoint him as being one of the greatest as you have alluded to.. he'll never be more than a secondary player on any championship team. He's great, elite, inside 5 feet. Nothing more.
