Zion Williamson reappears and… his physique worries | NBA

by archysport

The sequence only lasts ten seconds, but it is anything but reassuring. Zion Williamson, who suffered a broken foot this summer, is still not allowed to train, and looking at his footage, you can see why. The Pelicans star strong-winger appears heavy in every sense of the word, and he only confirms rumors of a weight of around 135 kilos.

Which is obviously incompatible with the requirements of very high level sport. Especially since this overweight would be no stranger to his multiple injuries since the start of his professional career.

At the microphone, for the meeting between the Pelicans and the Knicks, Clyde Frazier was not very gentle with Williamson.

“Guys, we can see Zion has put on a few pounds… He needs to lose some weight. He is only 21 years old, and he already has to work to lose weight ”.

A year ago, it was James Harden who appeared with extra pounds, and he quickly reassured everyone after his transfer to the Nets. But the two players don’t have the same age, the same type of game, and the same injury backgrounds.
