The next superstar?No. 1 Zion is quickly fulfilling expectations
Zion scored 20+ in 12 consecutive games.Before entering the league, the new champion Zion is regarded as the next superstar.Although he suffered serious injuries at the beginning of the season, Zion has brought surprises to everyone for more than a month since his debut. The 19-year-old is quickly fulfilling external expectations.On March 4, the Pelicans sitting at home to the Timberwolves 122 to 129, Zion played 28 minutes, scored 25 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals, this is his 12 consecutive gamesHe scored 20+ and scored 20+ 14 times in the first 16 games of his career. In almost every game, he surpassed the records of legendary stars such as Jordan and O’Neill.I am afraid no one can predict, if Zion is always healthy, where is his limit.The record crusher was highly praised by James. As early as last year when he played for Duke University, Zion had already applauded the NBA fans, no suspense became the champion, representing the Pelicans in the preseason performance is efficient, everyone looks forward to this futureSuper Giant’s debut, but accidental injuries before the start of the season have included Zion’s NBA debut for nearly 3 months.On January 23, the Pelicans played against the Spurs at home. In that nationwide live game, Zion scored 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting and seven rebounds, including four 3-pointers and made a stunning career.First show.Facts have proved that the highlight of the first show is not a flash in the pan. From 24 points on February 1st, 31 points on February 12th, to 35 points on March 2nd, Zion has improved its highest single-play record in a short period of time.As of March 4, Zion averaged 29 appearances.1 minute, contribute 24.2 points, 6.With nine rebounds, Zion’s performance is one gear higher than the number one pick in the last 10 years.In the first 16 games of his career, Zion scored 20+ 14 times, including 30+ 3 times, and his shooting percentage was as high as 58.8%.Multiple statistics show that Zion’s performance is the most stable and efficient among all players under the age of 20 in history. Multiple data can be compared with legendary superstars such as Jordan, Chamberlain and O’Neill.After the game between the Pelicans and the Lakers on March 2, James took the initiative to hug and communicate with Zion. As the first person in the league’s active service, the former highly rated Zion as a potential new star.”Although he only played more than a dozen games, he performed extremely well in these games. You have to play in person to play his strength and speed.”In James’ view, Zion can make physical contact, can control his own movement under the basket, and is the player who takes off the speed of the league’s active players.Meeting old friend Moran Randant for best rookie Since Zion staged his first NBA debut at the end of January, there has been constant controversy about the best rookie between him and Morant.Conclusion.According to the selection convention of the best and best rookies in the NBA, journalists and TV commentators with voting rights will often consider the number of player appearances. Players with too few appearances or even eye-catching data may not be able to win the favor of the judges.In NBA history, the player who won the best rookie, the least played in the 1985-1986 season, Ewing, he played in 50 games on behalf of the Knicks, averaging 20 points and 9 rebounds.So far, Zion has made 16 appearances, averaging 24.2 points, 6.9 rebounds.If the rest of the game remains full, Zion will play 37 games at the end of the regular season.Taking into account the top spot Morant can also contribute 17 per game.6 points, 7 assists, and the team’s record is better, will the judges eventually routine or break the routine for the first time?At present, there is suspense in the battle for the best rookie.However, Zion himself does not seem to have a cold for the honor of being the best rookie of the season.Even though he judged Morant the best rookie in the West in February and became the best rookie of the month for the first time, he still appeared many times on different occasions. He is not too worried about personal data and honors. He is currently only considering helping the team to impactPlayoffs.According to US media reports, Zion played in the same team as South Carolina in high school with Morant, but both were supporting players at the time.Over time, the two came to the NBA as the top picks and leader of the rankings, and continued their lead in the recent All-Star rookie challenge. Morant sent an assist and Zion completed an empty dunk.From the former high school teammates to the top picks in the draft, to the battle for the best rookie today, there is no doubt that regardless of the final selection results, the two will compete in the rookie season.When the two become famous, this story will be brought up countless times.The hidden weight of growth career is the highlight of the first 16 games of the double-edged sword and even the entire rookie season. It does not mean that a player can continue.If you want to grow into a superstar, injuries, personal play, team positioning or even luck, you will have unpredictable effects.For Zion, the injury factor may be the biggest variable. Both the injury experience during college and the injury before the start of the season have proved that Zion ‘s weight is a double-edged sword, which means amazing power.And speed, may also endanger the career of this new star.Official data shows that Zion’s current weight is 128.8 kg, second only to the Green Army in height among all active players.26-meter rookies Tako Farr, Boban Marianovich, Bjorkic, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Embiid are all heavy.You know that Zion is only 1.98 meters, and all of the above are the league’s well-known center, with a height generally exceeding 2.10 m.In addition to the hidden injuries caused by weight, Zion’s future in this pelican is also full of uncertainty.From the beginning of the draft conference, Zion has been selected, and he is happy to play for the New Orleans base city, the Pelican team. A few days ago, he also equipped all teammates with custom headphones, which shows his love for the team.But this does not mean that the current team play is conducive to the growth of Zion.It is undoubtedly the growth path of most superstars, Zion did not get enough fire right from the beginning.In this Pelican team, Ingram and Holiday made more shots. Most of the ball rights were in the hands of Ball and others. Zion’s current style of play depends more on his impact and the basket.Counterpoint advantage.Even if it is as strong as Durant, without the unlimited fire power of the previous seasons, I am afraid that it will not have the ability to end today.It is undeniable that Zion ‘s current style of play is indeed very efficient, but from a long-term perspective, without the Pelicans setting Zion as the number one star, Zion ‘s ball-holding ability, COSCO and other technologies cannot effectively exercise.Sauna, Ye Wang Xu Bangyin editor Wang Xihuang proofreading Li Lijun
