Establishing the Discipline of Conversation Design - Rob Hayes Head of Product at Voiceflow Talks Conversation Experience Design - Voicebot Podcast Ep 209 - burst 09

"Let's talk about design so conversation design. You've probably learned a lot about conversations design of your fast job at ada and the now a voice flow when you think about the practices that people are employing today. What what do you think's the most interesting in terms of how this is evolving. The one of the more interesting things you're starting to see is as as these teams are as the teams are getting established within organizations You know. I think maybe the first conversation designers really get introduced into Organization focused on a specific and then another one for another channel. And now you have. Now you have a discipline established once you have to conversations niners working onto channels. You have a discipline established and so starting to see more of that. The conversation design practice being established. And then you know. They're they're starting to think about okay. We're not building. we're not building an ivy. Our experience and a mobile a mobile assisted interface Separately these are these are two touch points with with the same brands conversational experience. And so how do we. How do we think about consistency across channels ends and then ultimately how do we hand off between channels to the to the appropriate channel. That's best suited to to deliver on this. And so i think one of the one of the more interesting patterns. They're starting to see is just you know what is what is the interplay across conversational channels within a single organization whether that be behind the scenes just in terms of how that the teams approaching it designing for creating consistency of language content personality flows within the experiences to ultimately having interplay between these channels in the future. Yes are you seeing more of that cross channel collaboration. The it's it's happening on the behind the scenes part of a lot. Or there's there's attempts to really get that structure in place to be able to do that. That's how to. How do we share a source of truth on on our on our contents. What is our what is our content management system that we all pull from what is the what is the intense the list of intense that we support and which slice of that does each channel handle and wears their overlaps. Even between you ex design and conversation zion. You know where to these experiences. Start to overlap. an water the assets that were building around for those so you start to see a lot more of on the back office side or behind the scenes thinking about how do we work across channels To save effort redis redundancy but also ultimately to create a you know a a more cohesive cohesive experience for someone who's interacting with our with our company regardless of what conversational touch point. So it sounds like there's more coordination may be than in past when there was basically zero coordination across the different channels different different executives in charge different budgets all these other types of things different objectives So that's yet it's an interesting but are they actually sharing resources they are. They really collaborating beyond sort of the standards and policy level Are they actually creating experiences together. Are they sharing those resources of conversation designers across these different use cases. It has as much as there are enabled to do. I think this is. This is one of the the pattern the patterns that you'd see from from certainly from people with a connie copywriting background or a a u x background. Where this is like. It's a familiar thing because that's what you would do in those disciplines is year. You have design systems. And you've got your your content style guides and these resources that are built to be shared regardless of what channel output to create that consistency. So there's a lot of effort to being done to to replicate those those items for conversational experiences. You know what is our conversation was conversational design system and that includes everything from how we how we authenticate a user through a conversational platform to how we say goodbye. And it's it goes from everything from the the actual user flows the the functional interactions that users having to the contents of what's being said

"To finish this with like a finger roll over somebody and he just slams it you're like oh oh that's right. This is ion types of things and then his second jump would be impressive for guard. Let alone somebody. Who's two hundred and eighty four hundred eight five pounds. I mean the second the second jump. Andrew is such a key term in nba scouting pilots. Explain what the second jump is. Because when i watched zion second jump. It's jump that anybody would be lucky to have as their first job absolutely so. Let's say he puts his shot up. And i'll use really go bear because they've had some good battles before rudy. Gobert goes up to block his show rudy blocks it or changes the shot of the rim when tsai on grabs the ball the second time his jump to get back up and get his second layup he's gonna get up quicker than rudy can reset. He's going to get a quicker than most. Nba guys can reset but his ability to get his own rebound and go back up so quickly so the other guy may be still on the floor is what makes him so special. Yeah i kind of want our listeners. Right now to like try to jump one time and then try to jump again and then again and just see how exhausted you get and zion is doing and what. You're explaining years that as everybody else gets tired. This dude seems to defy physics and this sort of physics equation around zion. I mean the concern from on. I think was that it was unsustainable. But the fact that he is doing this and seemingly andrew not really showing signs of the injury that was playing him last year. What does that tell us about. Zion right now house. The injury situation playing into any of us my favorite zion stat of the year. So far is thirty. Two point eight minutes per game. I think that might be the most important no matter what else. He does the rest of the year. I think that's the most important stat. So far for him is the fact that he hasn't had any restrictions. He's been healthy this year. And i think that when when you look back on this that's going to be the biggest thing because when you're that big and you're generating that much torque the maintenance that they are taking with him. The preventative maintenance goes a long way. Well part of that maintenance andrew that seems to get inordinate amount of attention is ions weight and as he continues to develop as he continues to handle the ball more. How does his weight and conditioning. All factor in it was such a big thing in new orleans that there was this rumor going around that zion williamson or chicken fingers at commander's palace one of these famous new orleans restaurants where you can get whatever you want. Whatever kind of creole food you want. It was it. Was that big of a rumor. People have been obsessed with this since he got one of my biggest stories at the newspaper before i started working at. Espn was a question from like an answer from zion telling him hey guys. I didn't have chicken fingers at commander's palace. They were for my little brother. That did almost as good as any other story. That's how obsessed people in general have been about zion's eating habits. His weight is conditioning but the conditioning now is going to be a key. How much point guard he can play. Stan van gundy has mentioned this so far. They love his conditioning. If they're gonna play him point guard. More point guard. Level conditioning in the nba is a little bit different than regular nba conditioning. And that's something. That's i on will still need to work on. If the pels wanna make points. I on a thing even more so deniability has so if a three hundred pound do like zion can basically gummy bear bounce like this here there everywhere over it over again. Where are we in terms of the trajectory of his potential as an nba player. You i remember talking to a few people before his his rookie year started and they mentioned he's going to have to make a lebron james level type of commitment to maintaining his body in order to continue on his trajectory. And if he does that. I could see him being a future. Mvp being the league team to a championship. And go from there are coming up. How to build the team.

Can you be the rookie of the year when you only played nineteen games and by the way? They were ten and nine in those games. Guess what their record was in the sixteen game before as I got back Dunno eleven and five. Are Zion Look. He was great. When he played, but job Moran became the first rookie since MJ. Michael Jordan I to lead his team in scoring assists and lead to the playoffs. The first rookie. How. In the world is he not I? Mean it's ridiculous. Okay. You can't be rookie or IDIA war in one thousand, nine games he is. He is the fourth the. Fourth teenager in NBA history to drop thirty plus points per game. Hey, in value backing. You give me a first for John. I'll give you another. Number one overall picks to score two hundred points in the first ten games Alan Iverson. Shack and Zion that's it in the last thirty years. Game what's what's what's the number? Is it twenty five if he played twenty-three giving the number all knowing Chris. BUSSARD. Give me the num- always the lowest. Games that someone is played at one rookie of the year is fifty fifty out of eighty two. So yeah. What's that percents? I thought you were out of out of sixty five games. He needed to play like forty. So he's even close I mean J. mccollum bear. I'm looking. The question is where you building around who has better stats who was Full. As.

"The bronze started all of this out. Go to like a wrestling analogy right. Like he was faced in the beginning it was a good guy and then he goes to Miami and he becomes a he'll Zion comes into the league and he's been so covered by so many people that there seems to be this level of animosity towards the coverage that makes it feel like he's starting out as a bad guy in some ways to the general public so when the General Public View Zion. Eventually does he being one of the beloved good guys in the NBA or the easy to root against villains of the NBA? He's definitely going to be a good guy he's a face he's built as a face he's pushed as a face but there's a certain section of Fan we're not gonNA take what's been you know being shoved down our throat and they they wanna hate him because of how popular he is when we go to road arenas when Zion comes out the tunnel. There's a hundred fans around there ninety minutes before the game when he comes out cheering for. There's a Duke Jerseys in every arena. We go to now. There's Pelicans gear in every arena. We go to now. I think he's got this kind of childlike lovable personality. That he's always got a smile on his face. I see him being the well like guy throughout his career. So what part of that love for Zion and coverage of Zion? Our obsession with his eye on plays into what is at least being perceived now as a budding rivalry of some sort between Lebron and Zion. I think we're always looking for like who to put. Lebron against but Lebron has been so dominant for so long that his contemporaries kind of they they fall off. So we're looking for are now. Who's the next Lebron? Now and I think Lebron real losses that because everytime he plays against some of these young dudes everything plays against Luca or trey or Zion or jaw. He just wants to remind everybody. Hey guys I'm still the Bron. I think he likes that challenge.

Philip Lebron sends a message Zay on when they play together. Do you think that's fair to say? I believe that a couple of lazy things that have happened via multimedia fans that I'm just going to refute and try not to feed into okay. I Seen Lebron. Brings everybody if you're honest in the League. He'd be unanimous. Mvp THEY ENDED NOBLE ONC-. He leaves the entire NBA in the SIS. Not just when they play against Luca trae young as I am Williamson. He's averaging twenty five points. I guess everyone okay. Anthony Davis wasn't present. Caruso wasn't present any just lost the Memphis tonight before so. It was a game that they needed. That's burden foremost while. These guys are physical anomalies as it relates to their body type in their athleticism and their personalities and their for being such young players. I think a comparison for Zion ship. More about guys that play up front. You've Ron. James is a guy that has perimeter scales. He's a monster. Top of all time in assists as well. Their Games are so vastly different year. Because they're both six. They're to be times where they're standing in front of each other on a basketball court. I almost like comparison of of Zion to a guy like Anthony.

"He is Back Zion. Zion Williamson is starting to night Tuesday the while now. He's starting Wednesday. Sorry I apologize. He is going to be starting in the next New Orleans. PELICANS game and everybody excited about it. He's bans excited about it. Fox's probably best. CBS TNT. Probably probably. I mean everyone's excited about this. Because He Zion Lewiston when the most hyped players to enter the NBA. Sense Lebron James so so is exciting. Obviously everybody's hyped about it. He had a fantastic time in at Duke. Another player player. He had mazing time at Duke Amazing Year at Duke. They didn't win a national championship or anything but he was the number one. Pick in the draft to go to the neural New Orleans. Pelicans thought he was going to the Knicks. I thought he was going to go anywhere. But the Pelicans but the Pelicans one lottery Republicans got the number one pick and they picked the obvious choice was Zion Williamson. So what is the what. What are we expecting here so under with knee surgery before the season started? Of course that's why he has not played at all this year before he went on he played four four preseason games and he tweaked his knee during the preseason games. And that's what led to the surgery and all that so so his stats in the preseason games that he played in the four that he played in so he went he averaged twenty three point. Three points on seventy one percent shooting with with six and a half rebounds in four preseason games so the main question is Howard. The PELICANS GONNA use him so the Pelicans have been kind of getting by. They have Brandon Ingram. WHO's playing pretty pre- pretty great Lonzo? Ball's praying plane pretty great greats kind of overstated actually because the Pelicans are sixteen in twenty twenty seven at the moment they are eleven games under five hundred. They are twelfth in the Western Conference so by great I mean. They're great for what they've been doing. Bearing Ingram's been playing better since his time with the Lakers Lonzo. Ball's been playing a little bit better. Josh Heart is okay. Then you have drew holiday. Jj rettig veteran presence on the team they are playing as they usually play. So how are they gonNA use. I on when when he gets filing playing which he will start playing Wednesday so one thing that people people are saying is that he could get the Janas treatment when he does start playing so basically what happens happens the honest as they play they give him a load management so he could still be fresh for most game and fly around. These amazing plays at Janas does so they could gives eye on a very similar load management. Expect around twenty twenty five minutes in the first few games because you know he's still got to get him up to speed because remember he has never so played in a real NBA basketball game so that learning curve that most players have to go through by. Now they're usually pretty good. He still has to go through that learning curve. There's still a learning curve that he has to go through then on top of that he's also rehabbing that knee which he's already rehab. I mean he's got he's given the full goes one hundred percent to play for the Pelicans and the upcoming game so at first is going to be very little top and and it's really going to be interesting to see if you actually make impact. He made a huge impact on the prison. Two Games but those are preseason games. Actually Games are completely completely different but then again people said that about. He played at a small Catholic school in Spartanburg South Carolina. People said that when when he moved up to Duke went to Duke Start Playing on these ACC schools. They said he's got just to involve the Blah. We'll see how he actually how good he actually is then. They said the same thing when he moved up to the Summer League. We'll see how actually the summer league dominated at Summer League and now people are saying the same thing he's moving up to the actual NBA and people people are wondering is he actually going to be good in the actual MBA. So it's kind of all news at this point for Zion. I feel like he's going through the same same Amol Song and dance that people have gone. He's gone through three years pretty much because he was in high school three years ago so actually two years ago. He was in high school two years ago. So this is something he's been going through the past couple years everybody keeps saying there's a lot of nonbelievers when it comes Zion Williamson camp but I can tell you you got to watch person. Unfortunately I live near where his high school was. I never was interested in actually going to see a ranum high school kid play basketball. Aw That's just not my thing. I live near near where he is. I wanted him to go to Clemson because Clemson was definitely big target or he was a big target for Clinton he did not. He chose Duke over Clemson. Which I'm still upset about? But it's okay. He chose Duke over Clemson which smart move on his part I suppose but so he goes to Duke. Plays really well at Duke. I never got to see him on. TV of course but never got to see him live. Because Duke did not come to Clemson then then I wasn't gonNA drive up to Durham to duke game so I never got a person but what I've seen of him on television and during the NCAA tournament airmen during any duke. Game against the game played against Clemson. Duke at Cameron Indoor he is a monster. This kid is a monster. He is nothing like I've ever seen before you can compare him to Lebron but I think he's a little bit more physically. Gifted than Lebron was at this age Lebron James He. He was athletically gifted but physically. I compare Kinda Shack. He's like leaner shack because when I joined the NBA he was big. He was athletic. He can do all this crazy stuff. Zion kind of like that. That's how I would describe so so the impact impact on the Pelicans I feel like is going to. He's going to bring a lot of attention to himself. Because I feel like a lot of teams don't want to be shown up by ion remember. He is still the number one pick the NBA draft and the the basketball one player can change a team. Dramatically so having Zion in the game is going to open up. Avenues for for Brandon Ingram for drew holiday for JJ radic. He's going to get more open. Shots them on the outside and then also help with rebounds and stuff like like that is going to be very interesting how they use him like I said he's only in between playing twenty to twenty five minutes so as we very interested in how the pelicans skins how Alvin gentry uses him. The PELICANS still have a chance of making the playoffs. Now there's been arguments should the PELICANS even try to make the playoffs. There's is a young team Zion. Who's who you don't want to get injured again? You kind of want him to go through the rest of the season unscathed so he can spend the offseason getting better and getting full fully recovered from this injury. So it's going to be very interesting. How they use him? They could make the playoffs. They're just wealth. I don't know how many games out of the eighth out of the playoffs. The Ark but their twelfth in the Western Conference. Let's see how many games are they. They are out. There are only out four games from the eighteen. Only outboard games. Which is the Memphis Grizzlies? Who John Mirant on their team? WHO's there's another fantastic rookie? He was drafted second overall behinds ion and he's playing fantastic so the PELICANS can make. That's the bottom line with this terrible record. They could still make it. They still have a chance they will actually. They're probably more than four games out of the playoffs offs. But they're about four and a half according to basketball reference DOT COM so they still have a chance. Zion is good enough to get them into the playoffs offs. He is good enough. Basketball is completely different sport. When you when you have a team like the Cleveland Cavaliers and you just add Lebron onto it all of a sudden and they're making the NBA championship NBA finals every single year? And then Lebron leaves and then they're back to being back back to playing now. Yeah well back to pretty much relevancy. So it's interesting. It's interesting because one one player can really change changed a lot in the NBA. And Zion can change a lot for the Pelicans so the Pelicans are definitely GonNa be teamed. Watch the PELICANS game wins. I and makes his debut is going to be much. Must Watch even though he's probably not going to have that much activity in the game because like I said they're kind of rehabbing him they're kind of slowly getting them in you have that learning curve playing in the NBA which he still has to get used to and then of course you have the situation that they need to focus on. So there's a lot of deterrence to Zion Zion Zion Zion's debut but is still going to be exciting. He's one of the most exciting young players in the league and we haven't even seen him play game the fact that this many people are still talking about him. Even though he's been an injured for the whole year most most players will get forgotten about for the whole year. But now we've been talking Masire on this entire time. How the public can be with Zion? How how is going to play in the NBA and stuff like this so there you have it like I said it's GonNa be interesting to watch and I want him excited? I will tune into it probably will tune in for the twenty twenty five minutes Edzai in place and we'll see see how it goes and we'll see if the PELICANS will get over that Hump and get to the top so up next. We'll be talking more basketball but we're going to college. We're going to collegiate level as college. Basketball has been chaotic this year. And we'RE GONNA.

That's eight hundred seventy seven buy Dell Andrew you're from New Orleans. What has the culture around basketball been like in the city as much as New Orleans is a football town especially since Katrina with the saints having actual success? It's always been strong basketball city. They understand basketball here. They love basketball here. It is a great basketball town town and I think when Zion does get back on the floor though season going to be filled and these fans are gonna be very excited to watch basketball. Will you mentioned they're calling Zion one of one but I'm old enough to remember when they had another player who a lot of people thought was one of one and that was anthony. Davis was drafted first overall back in two thousand twelve. He was supposed to be the guy to save basketball in the city. And we all know how that story ended ended. The team didn't succeed in the playoffs. He wanted out ended up getting traded to Los Angeles and really. I think you know left an entirely a different team in his wake. What sort of roster design? Walk into a much better one that is suited around him than the one. That Anthony Davis left. That was kind of the issue with the whole time and when people see. Ad Catching all these lobs from in finishing reverse like. Oh my God. He's so he'd been doing that for years. People just weren't watching the games down here. He is a phenomenal player but the roster was was not constructed properly around him. The team. mm-hmm is constructed a little bit better around Zion than it was around Anthony Davis and they brought in. Jj Redick they brought in Derry favors. They kept your holiday so that it has has a little bit of that veteran mix but the team is built to grow a little bit better than when it was for eighty so andrew. There was never a question in New Orleans about whether or not Zion would play this season but what about next season and the season after that not whether or not he play but how much basketball Zion will play load. Management has been one of the biggest story lines of the NBA season given the injury concerns. And I understand stand if those are overstated do you think they'll approaches usage differently from how they might use another young player. I think they're going to monitor him. Probably a little bit closer but As long as he's healthy they're gonNA let him play. I don't ever foresee him being a a a thirty eight minute night. Kind of Guy I think they'll they'll keep that in mind. You know he'll he'll play his thirty eight forty minutes sometimes when when they're trying to to really win some good ballgames but they're gonNA monitor minutes. I think moving forward. They're gonNA monitor his play. how He is if he needs a day off they'll give him a day off? Maybe it'll be in practice. Maybe it'll be a game. They understand that Zion Williamson is the long term future of this franchise as much as during during the season during the preseason I should say they've been griffin and Alvin gentry. Liked to talk about how your holiday was was is the face of the franchise right now. They didn't want to try to put too much pressure around Zion. They know what it is. There's a huge hundred sixty something foot billboard outside the arena. Would science picture on it. It wasn't a what's it's not drew's picture. So they know he's the future so they know they have to keep him healthy at all costs. They are trying to protect his body for the long-term so to the public hasn't seen a lot of Zion. But you've been around him. How has he handed all of this? What has he been like in the locker room? He's jokes are the. He's a fun Kim and you've got to remember. He's still nineteen. He's still learning. He's still getting used to this. I remember you know he was talking once within Keel Alexander Walker Walker about like hitting the half court shot and he trying to joke around about what they were going to do with it and Aqeel joke. Hey man we we need to make this a second contract we gotta make this a first contract. Bet The the biggest bet right now is still bet pushups with some of the Pelicans staffers. They'll try to challenge him at the end of his workout with with a certain dunk and the one that has been recently. Recently as a a two steps into a between the legs dunk at the Rim and design has won some and had to. Do you know the staffers after do pushups. He's is law some and they've had to do push ups so he's really just being a kid right now. He's having a lot of fun he he understands. That work is work. But he's making the most out of the situation and Lsu just won the national championship New Orleans sports fans. I'm guessing are in pretty good. Good spirits right. Now what will be like when Zion makes his return. What will the mood be like in the city? It's it's going to be like a volcano erupting. If it wasn't already you know it's been crazy the last couple of days with with Lsu. I'll think a lot of people went to work on Tuesday so so it's going to be pretty crazy. I remember what it was ten years ago when the Saints won the Super Bowl and it just kind of carry for a while through the city so for for you to basically ride that wave of momentum into exile Williamson debut and then they can still make a playoff push. The city's going to react very well to it. I can promise you that. Thanks so much Andrew. Thank you guys coming up is moment for the WNBA ESPN daily covering the greatest sports stories in history.

Here's another story. I want you to know Yesterday was a massive day for women's basketball the WNBA in its players union announced a new collective bargaining agreement. That will change the game and could change women's sports period now if you've been following the WNBA in recent years you know that as viewership and attention have grown the league she has drawn scrutiny for how it pays players when former league MVP Brianna Stewart ruptured her Achilles while playing abroad. which is something a number of stars due to supplement their limited income that criticism intensified now? The new agreement doesn't fix everything but it's a massive win for players as part of the deal the maximum. WNBA salary will rise more than eighty three percent to two hundred fifteen thousand dollars and certain players can make even more the revenue avenue split between players in the league. A major point of contention under the old agreement which players receiving twenty to thirty percent could become a fifty fifty split by twenty twenty one on top of that. The bargain insures MOMS will get paid on maternity leave as well as improving travel conditions and other benefits the Commissioner of the League. Cathy Engelbert called the deal. A big bet on women which I think is a really good way to put because too often when people debate the notion of equal pay. They look the discrepancy in revenue profitability without recognizing that for profit companies invest in ventures. All the time. Not Because of what they've earned or done so far but because of what they could become so this is the WNBA and by extension the NBA which supports the league betting on the women who played a sport believing that if they give them the support they need off the court. The game itself will grow as a result Time and this has been E._S._P._N.. Daily I'll.

"And Lopez covers the New Orleans Pelicans for ESPN Andrew. From the moment. That the Pelicans won the lottery landing the first overall Pick Zion Williamson was almost universally expected to walk in and be the face of the franchise really the face of basketball in the city of New Orleans. What did you think as you're watching the draft? Yes so I'll go back to the lottery with just two weeks. Prior to this the the newspaper I was working for got bought out. I was really in a state of flux personally. And then I remember when that Memphis logo came out of the number to envelop. The second pick will be made by the Memphis Grizzlies number one mic and the two thousand nineteen and it goes to the New Orleans. Pelicans and I realized Oh wait to turn to a buddy of mine who was sitting next to grabbed his arm and I was like Bro. I got a job like somebody. Who's going to hire me for this guy so it all kind of worked out? Because that night I I kind of started started the ball rolling with ESPN and ESPN hired me in August two covers ion and and do all this. It really change a lot in the city. I mean in the city itself. What the day after the they like three thousand or thirty five hundred season ticket packages? It was it was insane. You saw people walking around. It was June and July in New Orleans and you saw people walking around in Pelicans gear. That's saints time that we don't we don't do that down here. Really has changed a lot for Zion. Get down here and it's still hype is still the very real. Even though he hasn't actually played a regular season game yet right you were brought into covers ion you have not been covering Zion. Well not covering him on the court. He's practicing. He's been injured all year. What's his outlook like? Today is actually a very big day for Zaylon because the PELICANS still want to get him a a lot of five on five work. That's a big step in his recovery right now. The problem with that has been. They haven't had a lot of practice time to get there once. He was cleared the five on five work last week. He did it but then the pels had a stretch of five games in eight days where they didn't really get much practice time. You don't get a lot of practice time on the road so today's actually a big day where he's going to get a chance to get back out there and get some five on five work done. We don't know if it's going to be one more if it's going to be two. Who More practices? But we're we're getting close to the end game now. We don't have a date circled but we're getting close to win you. Know he'll finally make his his regular season debut debut. How many times have you said endgame since this is all begun a lot? That's been a fun word for me everywhere. You go in the city right now. Hello everybody wants to ask you. When's ion comeback wins? I on coming back coming back. Alvin Gentry told a story a couple of weeks ago. He's in Walmart and a lady on a scooter walked up to him. It's like hey I see coach. Once I on coming back everybody wants to know when the saints loss on that Sunday in the playoffs I have four or five. I people text me right after. Hey come back tomorrow right like this is going to get better for us as fans and I'm like sorry guys people are just waiting for this debut is As much as they can so enter this all goes back to the preseason. Zion makes his debut against the Atlanta Hawks. He delivers I not just one. But three earth-shattering stays again Joe. That's not normal. The normal shooting over the course of his first four games he averages more than twenty three points shooting seventy one point four percent from the floor floor and then the unthinkable happens breaking news just four days before Zion's NBA career was scheduled to start sign. We'll miss a period of weeks because because of a right knee injury usually when you have a meniscus injury any sort of neander you can kind of point to. Hey it happened at this moment right here. You can't do that with Zion. He doesn't know when he hurt the knee. The pelicans don't know when he heard the knee and that's not just a like a PR spin on it. Nobody nobody knows when he heard this thing. It's very possible. He played at least one or two games with a torn meniscus. I think he had what twenty two. And Ten in that last game against the Spurs and it was only after that game where he kind of went to the training staff and was like. Hey guys Monique on a hertz. Maybe we can get this checked out and they thought it was just a regular routine gene thing they go get the MRI done and they're like. Oh we have an issue here. There was no swelling. He didn't really feel that much pain. It was more like something doesn't feel right in the knee and that's how it kind of started. He was clean when they got him in. preseason they think it happened in preseason. It's also not anything anything that goes back to his time at Duke. There's no lingering things there or or in some and they think it happened in the preseason. They just don't know exactly when so so the news comes out. Everybody's a little bit confused. What happens next before they go to that? Last preseason game in New York the the knicks the PELICANS announce hey he's outright knee soreness and it takes a couple of days before we figure out what is exactly going on and in part of the reason for that was they wanted to get different opinions from different doctors. It took a weekend and then they announce. Hey Hey he's having surgery. He had the surgery this morning. Everything is good. We're looking at a six to eight week timeline. The six to eight week timeline obviously would have been finished in December. And we're still. We're still waiting for that debut. But that's kind of where everything started right there so Andrew. How has the team handled Zion's rehabilitation process so this has been more than it being just about the knee? They have taken the time to look at Zion as a person Zion's body Zion's body type throughout this entire process. That's why you know when you look at six to eight weeks leaks that put us early to mid December but instead you know we're mid-january now or a month after that and we're still waiting. It's because they took their time time with his process. The knee is good. The knee is ready to go but they were working on the kinetic chain of his body. They're working on how much torque he's using. They're working on how he lands. They're working on how he walks and runs differently. Anybody who has been through any any sort of physical therapy knows when you go through. PT Your physical therapist will teach you how to reuse parts of your body. This isn't like Zion was like a toddler learn. They're like trying to teach him how to take his first step. They're tweaking things that he does. They're tweaking how he lands how to put less stress on his body. They're just trying trying to fix everything that they can. So that when he does take the court he has the same explosiveness that we saw before. I appreciate your calm. Rational description of these ion learning how to walk story because when it came out into everybody just about lost their minds. Zion is not your ordinary basketball player. Six seven two hundred eighty five pounds at age nineteen. That's a lot of week to try to slow down. He is built more like a football player. A defensive end and I think people look at him and they see a body type. That's unprecedented and they worry that that this injury could signify longer term problems. Were there any concerns about his body type or durability before he was drafted not so much they knew they were going to have to tweak a couple of things for him to eventually get to the level where he's playing consistently only eighty two games on a high level. He's going to have to make an investment in his body. The much the way Lebron does whether that's a personal chef whether that's having a trainer just for him those things will come along but the Pelicans are confident to to where they didn't think that you know because he six six to eighty five that they we're gonNA have these issues. They realized he was a one of one. That's likes to say a lot. The one of one so they were okay with where he was they. They just knew that they were going to have to have certain things in place to to be able to maintain his body along with him. One comparison that's come up a bit as ions been injured. Andrew Has Been Blake Griffin who is a similarly large strong guy who's had a lot of injuries. He's he missed his entire rookie season after suffering a knee injury David Griffin. GM of the. PELICANS has discussed this. What do you make of that comparison? I mean it's a pretty good one I think it's one of the best out there in terms of his body type any injury coming in his first year obviously blake had a much more more severe injury than what Zion had but just like Blake. Zion generates a lot of Torque in his body he generates he. He's a hard dunker. He's a I mean you just you hear his dunks throughout the arena when he when he throws it down even when he's doing in practice and Blake was a lot. I liked that early in his career now. Blake is still dealing with issues. So they're following a lot of what happened with Blake to make sure that don can go down a slightly different path to where he's going to be a little bit healthier when he's twenty nine thirty thirty one and for them hopefully still an annoyance. PELICANS UNIFORM SO Andrew Zion is out for weeks weeks turn into months and during this time. Well the PELICANS lose a lot of basketball ask ball. Games are at the bottom of the western conference seemingly with nothing to play for. Is there ever any talk in New Orleans of just sittings ion Dan for this season. Never they never had that thought not wants David Griffin is trying to build a culture of winning and they lost a a franchise record thirteen games in a row this year but there was never a thought of of shutting him down if he was healthy enough to play they were going going to play him after that. Thirteen game losing streak. They tweaked a couple of things. Defensively started to win some games. They're not going to just trade off these veterans that they have just because they're going to bring back because they WANNA win basketball games if they get the seat great if they fall short. That's fine too. But they are going to play okay to win games. And that's the kind of thing that Griffin has been Adamant.

"zion" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why

"And welcome to this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why I'm Chris where we're joined by Greg. Crone Gregory Houria. Another beautiful weird snowy snowy night over here in beautiful Pennsylvania Chris Beautiful Pennsylvania. Yes so you guys get to now. All of a sudden as as I was driving home I noticed a small amount of flurries and then as the next hour to win along some winter squalls Chris and Snow Squalls Elsa coding my driveway currently. But I don't think it's supposed to do or last much longer. Driveway Lottie DA. I know right Mr Mr Rockefeller No let's that's exciting. I think you know I've said this innumerable times but I miss snow in theory in theory in theory. Keyword there all right well this week thought about why the Pelicans are GonNa Richard Zion Williamson the season while the bills are going to beat the Patriots this weekend and why Madison Bumgarner is the best value so far and free agency. Let's start off with the New Orleans Talibans and and one Zion Williamson Zion Williamson the number one selection in the nineteen NBA draft. And I I were. He gets hurt after a pretty impressive summer league I would say and all of a sudden. There's a six to eight weeks time line and at this time on just keeps getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and we're now past eight weeks. Zaylon is still not cleared to actually take part in five one five staff or do any any significant court trills. Greg this is this is a story. I've seen play out before we've seen. Oh He's is going to be ready in a couple of weeks. Don't worry about it when our teams tanking and that just never comes. I will say I check this out and I was surprised to see over at Bethesda sportsbook. They're actually plus twenty five hundred not amongst the twenty five thousand skews me not even the worst teams is in the NBA but there is just not a chance in the world. The PELICANS are going to Risk Zion's long-term future or quite frankly their draft pick and twenty twenty by playing this guy this year. Well I mean the question. The PELICANS have to face. Is You know especially with the guys they got in that in that Lakers the deal that sent Anthony Davis over how Zion's going to Gel with some of these guys and and I think that you know obviously you don't WanNa push him back from an injury early but I could definitely Italy see a post all-star break bringing this guy back and just letting him get used to the game. We saw firsthand me and you a sixers fan saw this play Out Year after year after year and it took such a weird adjustment period for some of these guys that set out like Ben Simmons like Joel Embiid. I took a little bit longer for them to kind of get their feet under them at the NBA level now. Obviously Zion is an unbelievably athletic kid and a lot of explosiveness. This is part of his game and I think that that's something the pelicans definitely have to monitor coming back from something like this and you don't want to exacerbate exacerbate an injury and obviously their seasons essentially over I mean there what sixteen games under five hundred already to start the season. They've lost a ton of games in a row. I think it's double digits at this point. It's you know the the hunt for the playoffs is obviously over but with the way the NBA draft is waded. Now tanking doesn't work as much so getting this guy even a little bit of run not only for the team but also for the fan base. I mean this is a guy. This is the Mo what. Let's let's be honest. This is probably the most hyped number one overall pick since Lebron. If we're going to be we're going to be perfectly honest here Just from the amount of media coverage the amount of focus he went to Duke. There's just so much focus on this guy to to not to not put him out there for a couple of games just to get his feet wet at the NBA level. I think is unfair. I don't think the Pelicans give a damn about getting him. acclimated playing with Josh Heart and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram and Jackson Hayes and derrick favors. Whoever it is they want to put out there? You'll notice that I didn't mention drew holiday or JJ rennick because if you're if you're listening to the scuttle bought of late it seems like both of them could potentially be on the block. Why did you leave us? Jj why did you do it only to get traded and take your power out of your own hands. They're concerned about Zion long-term and you talk about the weighted it'd lottery system There's just -cation to that I get where you're coming from but the point is it's still better to have a better chance. You know if I I understand. It's not as drastic a difference. It has been in the past with more flat and lottery odds but worse team still have a better chance. And that's all you can really ask for. You know. There was never a scenario where that number one team was. Actually even the favorite to get the number one pick. The field was always the favourite because that that odds were what twenty five percent twenty six percent back in a pre weighted lottery. You know there. There was never any guarantees. And we've seen plenty of teams tank only to get the second pick in the draft third. Pick in the draft now God could be fifth. Pick in the draft if you're if you're New York Knicks Fan with RJ Barrett. Going four last year that he was hardcore. Tanking this is I on. This is all about Zion. This is about his future and who you're going to pair them with if you can add the James Wise Men are and Anthony Edwards or something along those lines. I I don't know how much percents Lamelo ball would make as he would potentially be taking a spot from his older brother but added Edwards or a Weisman. Come back next year and see what you got. But you're not risk nothing. I mean the problem is we've gone back and forth about market size and things like that with the Pelicans specifically is you. You're the risk of losing fan interest because of something like this though. It's not like the city of Philadelphia where you have you know a much. Larger pool pulled draw from a long rich tradition of basketball. You know going way back to the early fifties you're talking about you're talking about a Pelicans franchise that is relatively brand new in the in the you know the grand scheme of the NBA and to not have a guy like this out there to not not give him to not give the fans at least an opportunity to see him is is a really really difficult decision for me to watch them make. I mean it's not like like they're dropping ticket prices because he's not out there. You know what I mean. Those season tickets that skyrocketed remember all the stories in the videos of the ticket. Team going crazy when when they landed the number one pick those ticket. Prices are staying the same in you risk a lot when it comes to renewals and things like that from from a business standpoint by not having the sky play. I understand that the season's essentially over but how many games his rookie Zion Williamson really going to win this team. This team has contracts as constructed. It is not very good. They have pieces they definitely do. I mean drew's obviously a perennial. All Star at this. Point is one of the best young point guard gets. He's not young anymore. It's twenty nine. But he still a very very very good player in this league. And you outside of that I mean you do like you said you you have. Jj whatever derrick favors again. Nothing Great Brandon. Ingram is easily the best player on the team currently I mean the questions going to become as what do fans have to watch. What this team? If it's not Si- On pill you get Zion over the next. At least four. Three seasons you get a healthy sign you talk about fan interest waning and you know temporarily that may be the case but who cares hairs because the very second that guy steps onto the court it all goes away and that's all anybody who's GonNa WanNa talk about again and this team is going to be a lot more interesting thing if Anthony Edwards playing playing shooting guard instead of Josh Heart or JJ radic or somebody like that and then you genuinely have that young core for you know. A wise men might be weird fit just because they draft Jackson. Hey so high last year but a guy like Edwards gives you a potentially you. It's really interesting. Young trio of of Edwards Zaylon and Brandon Ingram. And then. Then you're onto something then you're not just a team that's interesting to watch because it was I on your team that potentially if everyone matures correctly becomes the team to reckon within the NBA. And what why would you risk you. We I think the only way the fan interest goes away is if you put this guy back on the court. He's exciting for game and a half then he lands wrong. Re Fractures chooses foot. And we're back to square one. That's how you lose fan excitement. Sure but what are the question becomes as he's two hundred eighty five pounds. I think the odds yet. But it's not GonNa Change. It's GonNa Change from this year to next year. It's not like all of a sudden ions going to become a felt to forty like if anything he's GonNa continue to grow into his body and potentially get bigger. I mean we're talking about a twenty year old kid right here. I mean you watch guys transform as they enter into the NBA. A and what their bodies become. Let's talk about a guy like Joel embiid. For example you know they come into the league. They add that wait they get bigger. I don't see Zion on shrinking anytime soon. So you're talking about worrying about something that can happen at any point. It's this is the same reason why I disagreed. Continuously with the sixers and what they did did with managing the injuries of Ben Simmons and managing the injuries of Jalil Okeafor nerlens. Noel and I guess Jalil wasn't injured but nerlens was an and even Joel embiid like we did this thing where we baby them and did for what exactly. Well I would argue. NCUA the Ben Simmons thing and I will believe this to my. My last breath was not the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers decision but rather the decision of his management management and Ben Simmons because I think they care about marketing and they wanted him to be able to be rookie of the year out. It's also because he didn't shoot three pointers and he doesn't shoot and he's not a shooter in what are you talking. What are you talking about? He's I think he's too for three but either way. Well he's I think he's actually two for five on real threes real threes real threes. I just wish he's the best shooter. Benson's will not have perfectly fine. You're incorrect but I mean let's think about the teams in New Orleans around. I mean they're in the much tougher western conference. I don't think Zion brings them anywhere near getting outside of that bottom autumn five or bottom six you know world in when it comes to the draft lottery. I just don't the team's not good enough to go in night in night out and beat teams. They're not going to be better. They're just they're just not. It's just it's not going to hurt their draft stock as much and getting this guy out there and letting their fans and see what the future holds. I think carries more weight I don't agree with that. I think this is you tank and you worry about it next this year. Are you at all surprised you. I mentioned the the Plus Twenty five thousand Pravada but are you at all surprised to learn that to win the championship. That plus plus twenty five thousand goes for both the PELICANS and the Memphis. Oh sorry the Memphis..

"Vernacular for Zion Woodson? We can't fully way bigger right right. I never used that one no thirty years. I've been -ffiliated with the League. I haven't heard that way better. The PELICANS have lost not ten nine eleven. Twelve thirteen game remember. There's a lot of people thought this is GonNa be play team. They had a nice collection of Lakers. All a lot of people like you easy Collie you adopted this team lost twelve thirteen in a row. Ever fix militancy there who made the playoffs offs. You do that how you have no idea. I'm worried about this would they don't WanNa hear his Zaza allows you to sit out the year. I don't WanNa hear that I really don't. It's just like you can't if he can play. Let's say in mid January. You're going to have him sit for three months of basketball. Skip all this is not good for him. Jacoby we've talked about this on this program already. Unfortunately I don't believe Zion Williamson ever play two games. He's nineteen years Seoul. Nineteen not twenty nine thirty nine and hasn't played. NBA debut yet. He's on a squad is go onto the lottery this on consecutive losing streak. I hate to bust your bubble and you hope to see him play in February and March and April but the franchise. You don't WanNa them get hurt his day at least look at Joel. He's never gonNA play two games but he's going to be an all star and he can potentially carry a team to a championship. Lured you in what was doing. It was called the process and they was in. Yeah that's what the penalty they lost. artigue daylight is whether to turn around. That's my point here because I think it's good for basketball. Players play the basketball. I remember Paul George hundred them play the end of that. Yes getting ready for the next. Yes that's what I would do was Georgia's built a lot different design and works well the warriors they had a full decade retrospective look back. Look back at the decade. The warriors had Shaun Livingston. Yeah I mean they had a very interesting decade some high dollar chips..

"In baseball if you had a rookie phenom pitcher back in the day they let him one hundred thirty pitches in a start if he shutout going they let him play pitch two hundred fifty innings and then his arm would fall off Dwight gooden when he was twenty years old was one of the best pitchers who ever lived and by the time he was twenty five effectively he was never elite again Zion Williams nowadays when a young pitcher comes up Felix Hernandez or Clayton Kershaw. Let's be careful let's limit the innings limit the pitcher qader and old-timers complain but you could argue whether it works or not the point is that's the era we're now in in basketball you got a guy like Zion Williamson you're not going to do open stuff like playing forty minutes a game eighty two games you gotta be careful and what this will do we'll make sure that even when there's something to play for and there's something on the line the Pelicans ranch is should keep the long-term in mind the cowboys have lost three in a row and White Amari Cooper has an ailing quad injury is Dallas in desperate times maybe are they in need of a boost definitely follow famer and cowboys legend Michael Irvin made it interesting suggestion two one five three the fans it'd be sitting here ride the high horse like we talk we need to e. l. p. right so real I don't care what kind of media relations with the public relations nightmare cold windy here saying I'll L. for alleged sexual misconduct it remains unclear if the League would put Brown on the Commissioner's exempt list welcome in front office insider Louis Riddick how are you doing today those comments they made me chuckle are what makes you chuckle about it because it's just ridiculous at this point look I understand that winning games is paramount and that's what everyone is after in the NFL and that's what you're charged to do and that's what you're after to do at some point in time though integrity and the character of your football team new organization has to count for something for something Antonio has shown that he really doesn't care about those things he may say that he cares about those think in regards to how you conduct yourself when the rubber meets the road so to speak isn't care about those things is he really what would be is he really would be what's best for football team that right now is struggling in terms of its identity in terms of its leadership in terms of how it is ultimately going to end up this season and see really what's best for them overall maybe on the football field at wide receiver there's no question he could help Antonio's uncomfortable he's one of the best wide receivers is not the best why received the NFL right now he probably come in right now Alan catch ten for one fifty it would have on its football team overall with that has come some other things he's already proven he's going to bring other table is that really worth it to you stephen a what do you what do you think do you think the cowboys should sign Antonio Brown riddick you're wrong okay and you and you look at the construct of this team in particular we're right now you tell me who that Alpha is that could keep a guy like Antonio Brown into like Tom Brady the New England page who couldn't even they couldn't keep them on the straight and narrow and even they made the determination that the negatives outweigh the positive I why would you bring your team more you're wrong on two fronts wrong with what you just said and let me explain what because Tom Brady didn't have a problem with Antonio Brown Bill Belichick and I'm told him I'd say he had a problem as well bill belichick am told him to shut up and and he went away from them and tweeted the woman and his own the field Tom Brady in terms of practice it with them in terms of gains she's been Tom Brady is still lamented the fact that he's gone that's point number one point number two I think his here's why here's the biggest reason I think you're wrong about the cowboys because you have Jason Garib c deficiency at the top whether it's what Max says about Jerry Jones whether it's what we all it took about three years ago.

"There was just one of those games where we just we we knew we weren't going to claim that that way and we had to raise our game up normally in playoff sweep. We raise the bar. We felt like we lowered the bar that game. I'm sure Lonzo appreciates the fact that after that game you said take time to be but he's still all champion sounds like did shipments right there when you have that forget it. I mean if that's how you feel after a win because standard so high there you go we talked about about in the previous segment about names. You called people in the locker room and apparently it wasn't just stacey king. It was also to yourself so there you go your teammate on that team. Steve Kerr it was asked about his current team the warriors and the Angelo Russell's role as a ball handler now that he's ready said about the new guy take a listen. I think you'll be good good off the ball. He's clever passer clever basketball player so he understands how to come off a pin down without Alpe ball and then once he gets in traffic in the pain he understands how to create either shot or or or get the ball back out to somebody who is is not covered. That's a big big deal so I'm really confident. He'll be able to play without without the ball for us. Thank you been with this team. In training camp the past few days who is going to be their primary ball handler is it Dangelo is because he steph curry with it the beauty of the worst system racist. They don't really have to pick one guy. It can be Steph. Sometimes it could be Russell. Sometimes it'd be draymond. Sometimes who comes up initiates the offense but they really liked the way that Russell has fit in so far. I talked to him the other day and he said it was like playing with Steph planning a video game and he's beaming. He says his phone lights up all day long people asking him. How cool is this like. What is just like for you to be around? Steph curry all the time and it's really interesting after practice the first one yesterday steps out there shooting like he always does who goes and finds him on the floor. Lor intakes. The role of the Katie had for most of last season the end zone Russell so we're also in courier building that chemistry now and that's only gonNA help them. Once the regular the season starts well. That was quite a compliment guy video game. I've experienced that too yeah but anyway I really see Russel really taking that pressure off of staff. He's dealt with injuries throughout out in. I just think this is going to give him a chance to play off the ball as much as he wants. He's a huge factor in terms of just running down the court using traffic just to get open shooting threes and I think Russell prove last season. He's one of the top guys in the League in terms of pick and roll just behind harding in Damian leaders so Russell in the ball and I think that's going to give him a chance to learn the team. Learn offense and just kinda see everybody's flow staff. Jeff knows everybody. He knows everything. That's going on offense but he's going to be good from a point guard standpoint. That Russell knows what's going on and reach the SCOTTIES point. Steve Kerr's already said we WANNA make the ends will as comfortable as he can be. We know how good he is in the pick and roll we'RE GONNA run more pick and roll than we have in the past. They don't want him to feel overwhelmed. I'm to start. They want him to feel like he's fitting into what they do but they want to be able to fit into what he does. The best man has anyone's basketball life changed more for in what three years the Russell right you're talking about. How happy is yeah. I remember I I read something of him last week saying that after the first couple like informal workouts he called home own. He called his parents. He was so excited about getting to be this and we think about back where he was when he left the Lakers I mean you said he called his. He said what am I really here right now. You're talking about a young man that came into the League. He's probably one of the most popular franchise so that's the high and then you get sent Brooklyn now. They take you put you low and now you're back at the top again you playing with a team that could contend for title so he's been quite a journey form to be able to play alongside stale in clay. This upcoming season is got to be on the maze and the way he left L. A. The Nick Young incident and then obviously rebuilding with Brooklyn all the success they had together and now this and there is this optimism around the team essentially optimism though it just feels different than it did last season and it just talked about you don't have anything hanging over them right back the tension that was there the last couple years guys it's gone and that tension was. We've got to win another title. We don't know what's going to happen but with K. D. down the line. The will hear won't he stay questions hovered around that team all year. We've got a close oracle in style. This is the last year in Oakland. This is the it's gotta be now all of a sudden. They're going to chase center and stuff touched on. This said we can create our own narrative now. They don't WanNa forget what they did know at Oracle and winning the titles titles but it's all new to them. It's a brand new team but I think this is the biggest key and this what people forget draymond got paid one hundred million dollars Klay Max deal. He got paid the Ngelo Russell Max deal he got paid steps in the middle of Omega Max deal. Kevon looney got paid. This team knows what its core is for the next few years. I'd argue the guy with the most pressure on him is the Angelo Russell and that's the guy who seems to be enjoying the most because it's a whole new setting. Any noses is with the team. That's at the top so it's really been interesting to see the adjustment from the beginning of training camp last year mentally to where they are right now. Oh Yeah and don't cry for the warriors ownership because the amount of money they will make at the center the ATM machine is. I like to call it. They'll cover all those contracts and like two nights. It'll be fine coming up. We're GONNA talk about last year's number. One overall pick de Ondre Aidan. He says he will definitely shoot more threes this season which is good because I think he shot four last season. Is that a smart art move but a seven footer we also have Zion highlight from Pelicans practice. It's what you want it to be. Just stay tuned. You'RE GONNA WANNA see this Geico Presents Monster Counseling Dracula. Tell me how.

"But the guy that you hear thrown out thrown around is Anthony Davis. I do not have. Zion as good of a prospect is Davis, though, that's not to say he can never be as good as Davis is or anything like that. But partially because I knew how Davis was going to work is offensive game. I think grew earlier than I expected, but Davis had that defensive player that your potential, which I do not see in Zion, and sadly is not all the way come to fruition in New Orleans. So then I would say the next one down, I, I'm kind of hesitant to talk as much about Odin even though I loved Odin more than Karl Anthony towns because of the way that things went for him, you know, like, because it was it was something that I didn't see coming with his body is lower body and everything else like that. But comparing Zion, too towns as prospects, is something that I found fascinating. Yeah. I think clearly at time towns is below Yana, or blow Zion to me, if I had to decide with my guess would be he doesn't make it to being a top-five NBA player because it's just becoming more of a parameter oriented league in without the. Jump shot. How many shots can he create? I don't think he's going to be a massive defensive difference, regular thinking you'd be totally solid there. But my guess would be he doesn't make an all defense team in his career could very easily be ROY in there. But it would he would be an even more rare archetype to do that than Draymond green and dream on people people have been looking for the next Draymond green for a long time, pretty much every shorter than average power forward with decent feet. Can thank my green for people thinking that they can that the guy's really good defensively. I think I can't be that. But nonetheless, drove on just has prouder natural intimation in hands and wingspan. So expect him to get to that level. I don't think is fair. And then because I don't expect him to develop a jump shot. That's really a threat, especially off the dribble and posting up. It's just kinda limited the impact that attritional big can have it's been a long, long time since a traditional pig has been in the mix for best player in the NBA or even a top five player you'll maybe Griffin with at that point for a year or two Dwight Howard. Powered, you'd have to go back to that level. K G, O, eight Tim Duncan and a lot of those guys a lot more defensive ability than Zion..

"Have to worry as much about getting blown by sin. They'll, they'll be no perfect match for him. But a small you just have to double team. You've no chance of stopping them at all at the small a big at least he's, he's huge. He can put his body on them a little bitty science. Gotta shoot over for me doesn't have really like much of a float or a hook shot game. What concerns me there is if Zion, let's say his catch is elbow or beyond I worry about I worry about the big defending in that much space. So that's gonna be that's gonna be an interesting. Interesting thing for him. I could see it both ways. It's also depend on where his game goes handle shot all that guy said, but it's I I'm fascinated with that, all of those matchups challenging it's going to be it's going to be blast. I mean, there's lots of figure out so feel the things I wanted to talk about with scien- just in the overall picture here, the comps I think are useful here because he's such unique player and. And looking at how those guys were used what they ended up being in the league. So here here, a few comps that I have form some on the higher ends or on the Lauren Blake Griffin when he first came out, I think is a pretty good conflict didn't really have much of a jump shot. What's over as we noted earlier, he's, he really developed one, but that was kind of an outlier for him to improve that much of your remember he was a fifty percent free throw shooter, believed when he was coming up, but it didn't have like a great jump hook game out, actually say that Zion is like a little bit more touch than him around the rim. But they're both pretty good passers for their size Zion much better than Blake was when he came up, Blake kind of evolved into being that as time went on, and obviously Blake it, and absolutely nuclear dunker. I would say, like in terms of his ability to dunk on people even more of a dunker than Zion. Zion probably been more of a pogo stick on the offensive glass in Zion. You know, Blake Griffin was like, two forty five to fifty you know, just your normal pretty jacked NBA power Ford, not to eighty five just can really just plod through guys. So that's one what do you think of that calm? I like it and it's so hard sometimes, and this will come up. I want to talk a little bit about the historical context with Zion of remembering where guys were that this is not like I don't think you're comparing him to Blake Griffin now or Blake Griffin at twenty five it's Blake Griffin when he came out Oklahoma Zion, also much more defensive potential..

"Has been scored down goes Zion Carolina's going the other way, but pay no attention to that. What's really important happening on the other free throw line? Just thirty six seconds into the game. Everyone watching in disbelief watch the left shoe of Zion. Williamson just explode, but it's the right knee that he is holding and everyone could see the shoe the reaction shots remarkable from around the arena and you'll see them in a moment. Again. There's I on going down this President Obama, and you can clearly see the words his shoe broke. And so was it just the shoot. Was there a significant injury? Those were the questions of the moment as I left the floor. The conversation would come afterward. The new stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. It puts everyone in. Estate of trying to figure it out while while you're playing an outstanding team. That's not a good situation. I mean, I was hoping so can't really. Actually, I mean, I'm just gonna pray matured Hopi joke. I thought it was gonna turn shoes and get out there. But. See he wasn't going to come back game lose Tucker. I was wearing Nike shoes. As you saw. Here's a statement from Nike. We are obviously concerned what to wish Ziona speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. Also working literally all night has been our Maria Taylor who did the game from the sideline last night and hasn't had slept. She joins us bright and early this morning. What is the very latest as of this moment Maria on Zion? Well, as of right now, greenie Duke basketball, they do have a practice at one forty five this afternoon. So we still haven't received word on how severe the injury is designed. But I was speaking to one Duke official after the game. And he did say that doctors are very optimistic, and I was told to that afterwards when coach K was addressing the team. He was very positive in his feedback to the guys and after speaking to RJ Barrett and cameras they all said, it was difficult making adjustments on the fly, but they're praying for their brother for their teammate. And hoping that he can make it back as soon as possible. I heard you on sportscenter a little while ago. And I love you to share some of this with our audience about the feeling that Zion has for his teammates, and they in return for him because so much of the conversation this morning. We'll be even if he's healthy enough to continue playing should he and I know you've got a very strong feeling about that last night. Well, I do greenie because zions a guy that loves to compete, and he he loves this team. And that's one thing that RJ was telling me even after he put the phone down. And we're still talking about him. He said, that's that's my brother like we love being on the court together. And I think it's important to know because we think of these guys as five stars that are, you know, all about themselves all the time. But for everything that I've seen from Zion. He is also about this team in wanting to make sure that they're successful. And I could even tell I was kind of in the corner while he was trying to see if he could get back on the court, and he kept jogging back and forth and testing out that knee, and you could tell like he wanted to be out there. And right now, you know, his teammates all of the concern that was on their face in the locker room stuck with me. They all made sure that they talked to them before they did media after the game. I mean, they're concerned was really with him, and whether or not he would be able to be okay to to be healthy at some point this season, and obviously for his future. But these are guys that get along. And that's something that should not go on notice. While we tell the story and obviously talk about whether or not he will continue to play the rest of the season. Now. Again, show practice early in the afternoon, if as any information between now, and then we know you will bring it to us Maria will be with us all morning long. Meanwhile, let's show you what happened in the rest of the game, which almost felt like an afterthought..
