    Is Zion a good fit for the Pelicans?

      Speak for Yourself - Zion is a good fit but he is a duplicate of J. Randal.  Randal will be a thorn in the side if he's playing behind a rookie.  The Pels need a pt guard more than a power forward.  Morant is the best fit for NO.

      Its funny to listen to Wilcox talk sports, never played, but has the answers even when 3 pros explain it to him. Stick to Dunkin onuts Chris and what flavors work better in a mixed dozen box...

      No, the need a point guard. Plus it is better for the league when the biggest stars are in bigger cities.

    Peli’s could definitely use Zion, both as a person, player, and the market

      They didn't want Stephen Jackson to agree with Jason about Zion having that clout of bringing energy to college basketball after 15 years

                  Cuttino called it. Looks like a set up. AD leaving and NO gets the first pick? Hmmmmmm. Very very shady.

                          Espn just have too many talk shows voicing out their opinions that sometimes is just totally non sense...its about supporting popular teams and making a lot of gossip or hearsay information...this is not good for the people

                            zion is the second best player in the draft! everyone should be focusing on ja morant! his game will translate better in the NBA than Zion’s will. I don’t think that his body type coupled with his explosiveness athletically can hold up for 35-42 minutes a night in an 82-game schedule unless he’s on a serious regiment and comes into camp at 260-265 max. remember, shaq was really nimble and relatively lean when he was a rookie. lebron was always in great shape and still is. even if you look at charles barkley’s mvp season, he was in probably the best shape of his career and he developed a jump shot. too much is being made about zion strictly because of his athleticism. but rarely do big guys in the league last long without career altering injuries. can he learn the nba style of play in order to have a long productive career? we’ll see but if he loses weight and develops then he could be special. i just never bought into the hype. ja morant is the real deal, needs to add a few more pounds from a strength perspective but his game is well rounded enough to translate to being rookie of the year.

                                Go and figure it out??? How about Pelicans figure it out without ruining another potential star player?

                                  Plot twist. Zion stays in NOLA. Davis leaves. Pelicans bring Boogie Cousins back. NOLA now has their big 3 intact: Zion - Cousins - Holliday

                                    People are so stupid . . and selfish. The economic impact that Zion could have on New Orleans, if he's a successful box office attraction, could literally transform that city . . much like Lebron did Cleveland. Hopefully, Coach K will talk to him about how important his impact on the game and on the community, could be in New Orleans. Outside of Atlanta, which would've been perfect for Zion, New Orleans is a great place for Zion to flourish. Jrue Holliday will make sure he gets the ball in the right spots.

                                                AD did get to play with Cousins and it could not be done. Zion will fill the seats and eventually convence other stars to come

                                                                They made no real attempts to get KG, no attempt to get Pau, and they let the Stoudamire deal go because they didn't wanna get rid of Hickson.

Anything else is out of character it's not about where you think he should go who is you play with, like Stephen Jackson said that's out of his control and he would be out of place. Regardless of his stats and his ability and College he's fortunate to be in the NBA so he has to show yourself approved before he gets a self-involved and unnecessary drama which would you store his character as a player.

Let's say you go back to college and then have a career ending injury next season and never get to the NBA at all. Take the job, take the money, figure the rest out later.

The ignorance of someone saying he should go to the Pelicans and figure it out is absurd. Zion is his own brand and business he should act like it. We dont demand Microsoft go to a particular place and figure it out, neither should we of young men. He has the right to decide his best interest.
