Everyone remembers how dominant Zion was when he was healthy, so I won’t do a “everybody forgot” post. But what might be forgotten is the supporting cast in his 29.3 points per 36 / 64.9% TS season. He has never played with this much offensive talent. -MP PM

Willie Green on Zion Williamson’s play in last night’s intrasquad scrimmage: “Z looked amazing. His strength, his speed. He dominated the scrimmage pretty much. And then he did a good job of looking for his teammates. What stood out the most was his force, more than anything.” – 2:22 PM
