The shoes Zion Williamson wore in his NBA debut were inspired by Louisiana’s wetlands. Once again, his kicks will be a nod toward the state’s ecosystem. On Thursday, Jordan Brand unveiled the Air Jordan XXXV, the latest in its famous signature line. The Bayou Boys colorway, designed specifically for Williamson, are green, black and silver, and feature faux-gator leather.

Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans announced on Tuesday that the Smoothie King Center will provide early voting next month ahead of the 2020 general election, the 21st arena in the NBA to serve as an early-voting polling location. The announcement came as the NBA, as part of National Voter Registration Day, launched a new online resource hub highlighting leaguewide efforts around voting and civic engagement and connecting fans with non-partisan voting and Census completion resources.
According to NBA.com, the Pelicans had a net rating of plus-9.8, a promising figure, when Ball and Williamson shared the floor. But in lineups that featured the rookie phenom without Ball, the Pelicans got outscored by a whopping 13.1 points per 100 possessions. It’s a relatively small sample size, but that’sa tremendous drop-off. Zion’s individual numbers don’t necessarily dip without Ball, but there is a big shift in the way he gets his shots and how often they come in transition without his lead point guard out there.
Despite the long-term weight and injury concerns noted by some of the talent evaluators who left Williamson off their five players to build around, his upside was too good to pass up for others. “Zion’s injury history dropped him behind Tatum and Bam for me,” one scout said. “But I still think that even when considering his injuries, he’s just such a unique player that if you build around him correctly, he’s got the potential to be a really special player.”
