Ben Maller: “The Pelicans being eliminated was absolutely an indictment of Zion Williamson. A lot of people in the NBA media are carrying the water for Zion and saying it’s not his fault and it’s the faults of his teammates – NO, this is a terrible look. The NBA brought Zion’s Pelicans back to get his fat a** into the playoffs. The fact that they didn’t make it after everything was set up for them? It was mind-boggling that these guys found a way to blow it… There’s only one game New Orleans played at the Bubble when Zion was on the court that New Orleans outscored the opposition.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Ben Maller explain why he believes Zion Williamson is the most at fault for the New Orleans Pelicans’ disastrous stay at the NBA’s Bubble in Orlando these past two weeks, as the Pelicans went just 2-5 down the stretch, and botched their opportunity to grab the final 8 and 9 seeds for the play-in tournament.
Zion averaged 18.4 points during the five games he played in with the Pelicans losing 4 of those 5 games, but he also totaled ugly +/-‘s of -16 vs. Utah, -17 vs. the Clippers, -12 vs. Sacramento, and -21 vs. San Antonio.
Check out the video above as Maller details why he thinks Zion has been EXPOSED at the Bubble as this fake franchise savior who the media needs to stop worshipping and overrating.
