Ja deserves ROF but Zion deserves his own runway and some good health.
    His interview reminded me of...

    I wouldn't be surprised if the TV ratings for the game tonight are the highest for a game this season. The only thing that makes me waver is the 9:30 start time for the game.

    While I agree, I think I am more excited for this game than any non-Duke/UNC game this year.

    That 9:30 issue is why we have DVR's.

    If you look up in this thread you'll find a post of me making fun of myself because I called it ridiculous how excited I am for this game. Zion's just a magnet for goodness.

    Or in my case, insomnia! Comes in handy on a night like tonight or even last night where I can wait for my wife to go to sleep and and then watch the game. Then I get my 4-5 hours sleep and get up at 6am

    Has there been any indication as to how much he's going to play?

    They said earlier that he wouldn't start and they were shooting for about 20 minutes PT. At least that's what I think I heard between the segments comparing him to LeBron, Tiger, and Gretzky. No pressure, Zion.

    Nice pass to Ingram for his first positive stat. Not surprisingly Zion looks less than sharp but is clearly being careful to start.

    Zion looks happy to be on the court. He also has work to do to get into game shape. I think everyone knew not to expect too much tonight.

    Wonder if he’ll go back in at some point!

    He played 4-5 minutes in the 1st; my guess is he'll do the same in 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

    I also expect a Zion moment in the 2nd.

    I suddenly like all Duke game announcers compared to these NBA clowns. Please make them stop. Oh wait, mute.

    His first basket was very Zion-like, fighting for an offensive board and laying it in

    Thus far

    he's clearly not in game shape, no surprise there, not very aggressive, looks to be 20 pounds heavier than last year and has less quickness. So, as should be expected, he'll need time to be the Zion we know and love. The smile is still infectious!! Give me 2 weeks or so, then we can revisit his conditioning and performance. He did just score his first 2 NBA regular season points!! GO ZION and INGRAM!!!
