    Hey, it's the standards of DBR and he's right to take ownership of said standards. I thought the link was gonna be to an article on a definitive timeline for Wendell's return.

    That was my concern. Given Wendell's situation, this could easily apply to him, which makes the title very click-baity.

    I get the excitement about Zion (heck, I'm still trying to find a time to go see him play in the league!), but this board is still primarily focused on the current duke team, and as such, it seems reasonable to assume a post like this would be about a current rather than a former player. Normally a former player returning from injury in the league wouldn't warrant a stand-alone post to begin with, as we have a dukies in the NBA thread.
    oof

    I thought it might be something a little more divine.

    Glad to hear I wasn't alone in thinking this, haha. That said, I'm still pretty darn excited to finally see Zion play in the league.

    Any chance we see this game

    Any chance this game gets an "upgrade" somehow to, I dunno, Fox Sports South or one of the ESPN Networks?

    Can ESPN even show basketball on ESPN/ESPN2 on a Thursday night? I would think TNT would have some Thursday exclusivity in their agreement with the league.

    Maybe just frequent live look-ins during TNT's coverage of the Celts/Bucks game during the same time slot (the Pels game is being covered on League Pass)?

    I assume the thread title has been changed, but now I'm left wondering what it was originally because the entire thread has been almost exclusively about the old title. Was it just "He's Baaaacckkk ..." instead of "Zion's Baaaaccckkkk ...?"

    This is actually a meta-thread -- just discussion about thread format, not about the substance.

    Well, I for one am shickled titless by the news. Zion's been the most fun I've had watching a basketball game in a while and I'll be tuning in to a lot of Pelicans games just to watch him. I can't say that for any other recent NBA player save for play-off Lebron, Steph, and KD.

    That's cool. We have a Dukies in the NBA thread for the substance. I was just confused how someone thought a "Zion's Baaaaccckkk ..." thread could be about Wendell Carter or Jesus (now I get it). At least now there's context for anyone else who stumbles in here late like I did.

    If I post about meta-threads, would it become a meta-meta-thread? 'Cause that would be cool.
