    These also confirm my suspicions that there are some weasels in both camps (Griff and Zion’s) that are blowing things out of proportion. I do think there is some tension, but not to the degree it’s being paraded about.

    Yannick Nzosa/Ousmane Dieng/Jean Montero/Nikola Jovic/Paolo Banchero endorser

    I agree. Need the postseason this year

    What players say in front of cameras should always be taken with a grain of salt.

    But it was interesting to me when Zion said "I'm glad somebody asked ME that." "Nobody actually asked ME that before"

    ...when asked about how he feels playing in New Orleans.

    Seems fed up with all the rumors about how he feels without anyone asking him how he feels.

    Mighty funny the rumorville circus, especially Christian Clark, had no idea about the foot either. Among other follies.

    But media is trying their hardest to spin even this news as negative as they can.

    I agree. And knowing he has an injury completely changes the way people should look at him missing out on voluntary workouts. If I'm in contact with the team's trainer directly recovering from an injury, I'm not flying to multiple different cities to do informal workouts in August either.

    How’s an injury slip through all this information gathering? Is this like the real reason Zion was out of the bubble was a hammy and his family swore no one could know of it?

  7. #3832
    What information gathering?

    It's rumor gathering which requires far less work.

    Too bad we have a ton of chicken littles ready to eat all that garbage up.

    Someone is lying.

    Ok ok. Two hilarious movies playing in my head....

    1) Griff doesn't know how to play the piano. So who makes that up? Someone sat around and made up a fake story about Griff serenading Zion with piano and Clark bought it and that has me rolling.

    2) The plot twist. Years from now Griff is doing an interview and just randomly starts tickling the ivories and we all just drop our jaws because we got played.
    Some of you have never spent a magical platonic night being serenaded by your Alchemist quoting, piano playing, hipster boss and it shows.

    Broke a bone in his foot in the offseason while working out, and we all just found out. He said he'll be ready for opening night but what kind of shape will/could he be in?

    Actually, Zion said Griifin did have some kind of electronic keyboard and that he was trying to learn how to play. If you’ve ever been around someone trying to learn how to play a keyboard, not unusual for them to try out some piece they’re practicing…

    I missed that quote. I just saw the one that was something like "I'm not going to let a grown man come to my hotel and play piano to me".

    But my sig stands. If we ever do a PR Game Get Together some of y'all best be bringing the skillz.

    I've been watching since the beginning in NOLA and Ingram is close to passing up David West and David Wesley as my all time favorite player.

    While we don't really know how Zion broke his foot, we do know what shape he will be in.

    Five Straight Seasons....

    17/18: Spartanburg High- Bruised Foot (sidelined for a month); fell on the floor during warmup during AAU ball, sprained his knee and missed a couple of months.

    18/19: Duke - Grade 1 Knee Sprain missed three weeks (The Nike Shoe Incident)

    19/20: NOLA - Deep Knee Bruise that sideline him in first Summer League Game; Meniscus Tear in Preseason against San Antonio that required Surgery - delayed debut until January.

    20/21: NOLA - Shut down for remainder of season after incurring a fractured ring finger.

    21/22: NOLA - Broken Foot (Surgery).....SO FAR

    Are we starting to see a pattern yet?

    No, Zion said he ?thinks? Grif might have brought a keyboard to try to learn how to play.
