The same Coach K that rushed Harry Giles back and played him while not 100% healthy?

@algrolls Oh, so Harry Giles played his rookie season and wasn't held out? Everything about Duke is fake as fuck including all those Nike paid for recruits.

@algrolls Duke enablers are funny. You can't actually defend your position si you just say false. Funny how he played at Duke but the next season Sacramento sat him the entire year to allow him to get healthy. But sure... false. Coach K is trash and are the fake ass bandwagon Duke fans that defend him.

every prospect should be in shape and ready for summer league, it's their first taste of the League. If he can't even stay healty 10 minutes playing with kids, he is gonna struggle mightly during the regular season. the Pelicans still have a great duo in Ball & Ingram tho, they gonna run the show if Zion still isn't ready when the season begins

Coach K is a hypocrite, Zion should play for the team that’s paying him? I’m sure coach k was happy Zion came back to play for duke after his shoe incident. Zion was risking more playing for duke. Summer league is part of him getting in shape and working on his game.

He played like 19 minutes. Come on! Even the annointed one Lebron played in the summer league. I don’t know how many minutes, but he did play. At some point, you have to play some games, exhibition or otherwise.

That kid needs to drop some pounds; more than a few. If he dropped some of that baby fat and muscled up, he'd be ferocious.

He's going to be a bust. I can see it now. He's 18. He shouldn't have a problem playing basketball.
Nick King Televised
LeBron is old enough to be Zion or Lonzo's Dad. He's literally twice Zion's age, he declared for the NBA before Zion was born. LeBron is an All-Time great, probably #2 ever...but he's turning 35 years old. He's in his twilight years and the Lakers gave away the Future to team him up with AD one year early. AD could have came for free next year, and they would have had Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, and all their picks to keep\trade to build a team long term.

Wtf ESPN please don't baby players. Everyone and they mama play in SL but all of a sudden Zion shouldn't play. I don't like where this is leading. Players are being more and more enabled and they starting to show out. Case in point Marcus morris.

Zion should not have played in the preseason... Zion should not have played college...Zion should not have been at the espy's... Zion should not have went to the bathroom... gat damn if your going to get injured it don't matter where you play! If he out of shape he should play in summer league duh! Hello if you didn't know Zion always carried a lot of weight he will be fine damn!

Jalen sounds like another fatherless hater. Zion Williamson: ( 9 minutes) 11 points, 4-of-9, 3 rebounds, 1 steal RJ Barrett: 10 points,4-of-18, 5 rebounds, 1 assist . Fuck is you talking about Jalen? why yall attacking this young man stock? Coach K jealous the gravy train not staying with the lacrosse rapist atmosphere of devils. I give criticism to Zion's Mom for kidnapping but Zion is polished with His articulation. Coach K don't think Black Men are in shape mentally unless they give Duke and NCAA billions of dollars in leverage for 4 years. How is he out of shape snatching rebounds after grown men are in clear possession? If He jumps to the ceiling on dunks then stephen a will say he a accident waiting to happen. Zion crash the boards on they ass to get your points if Alvin slacking on correct play calling from jealousy of assuming you will leave N.O.and you will be 1st team all defense. fuck coach K and Jalen Rose. Detroit shaking they ( their) head at Him.

Randall Madison Month ago
It is professional now. Get paid to play. His game is not NBA ready. His athleticism is unbelievable but he has no shot and goes left 90% of time. Is Summer League goofy? Argument can be made it is. And argument can be made that it is your job now and you have to work in game setting to get better. He has lots to work on.

oh give me a break. this is a 19 year old kid, he SHOULD play and NEEDS to play. Pelicans Hid him, they didn't want him to look bad as the number 1 pick not being in shape. Zion going to have to get to work after all these award shows, media tour, interviews, commercials! He has a lot to prove his rookie year.

Sitting out summer league games is not a big deal. He has over 3 months to get into playing shape. Risking injury trying to prove something in the summer league, now that’s what’s stupid. David Griffin proved he’s competent and knows what’s he’s doing. So you keyboard basketball gurus, stfu

Shouldn’t professional athletes be in shape always? I understand boxers and mma fighters because they have months to rest after at least for mid to top class fighters do.

Shame on you. You're just saying this because you're a racist. It's obvious you don't like black people. You're just jealous because he's rich now. It's not his fault. It's all those cracka ass Whiteys running the Pelicans that got Zion injured.

He is a Pro athlete that is paid to play basketball. Any player can get hurt at any time. He could twist his ankle walking down the stairs. He needs to keep playing, and hopefully lose some weight. Are we just going to wrap players in bubble wrap now and not play them because people are terrified of injuries?

Whatever!!!! .... if you a NUMBER 1 PICK in the NBA, you should be ready to lace them up at ANYTIME!!!

He might be right. Give it to him a week before putting the kid on court. He might need to focus on basketball more rather than social media.

So Coach K is saying, Williamson is doing things surrounding basketball vices the preparations for basketball games? Gotcha. He has to step on the floor in the NBA to wow me, personally. Love college ball, but it's the big boy leagues. They will minutes restrict him neginnign of the season. Unfortunately, his premier is about establishing his brand and getting the franchise back in good spirits. But this is about the game, he needs reps now.
