Zion Williamson is perhaps one of the most hyped players in recent memory. Drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans back in 2019 with the 1st pick of the draft, many thought that the Pelicans were primed to succeed.
With players like Brandon Ingram alongside him, the Pels' future looked bright, but three seasons later and Zion just playing the 85 games during that time, it is safe to say that Williamson hasn't fulfilled the expectations of many. Missing the entire 2021-22 season with a foot injury, many criticized the big man for his lack of fitness, and trade rumors were also a constant.
While many were concerned about the former Duke forward's fitness, it seems like the 1-time All-Star has put all of it to rest. Starring in a Nike commercial recently, Williamson looks much more leaner and athletic and probably in the best shape of his entire NBA career.
The recent pictures and videos seemed to have convinced former guard Jalen Rose that Zion is going to have a great season.
