‘Monster’ Zion Williamson ‘with poor mental attitude’… New Orleans, patience exploding?
On the 13th (Korean time) 메이저사이트ahead of the play-in tournament game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pells Recons seemed to have fully recovered from a hamstring injury, including a dunk shot and a middle shot on defense before the game.
However, he did not appear in the game. New Orleans lost. A playoff berth was thwarted.
Williamson made an excuse, saying, “I don’t have any problems physically, but I’m not mentally prepared. Playing in this state will damage the team.”
Williamson was effectively out of the season after suffering a hamstring injury in January. He has only played in 29 games this season.
New Orleans gave Williamson, who lost the entire last season, the gift of a maximum renewal contract. Williamson also promised to work hard.
It went well in the beginning of the season. Williamson led the team to the top ranks by showing off his formidable scoring power even after taking a year off.
However, when he was sidelined due to a hamstring injury, the team’s performance also plummeted. Williamson never returned to the court. It’s because he’s not mentally ready.
CJ McCallum, who struggled against Oklahoma City, made a strange remark after the game.
“I even postponed the surgery,” he said.
“A player must always be ready to play,” he stressed. A word aimed at William.
Amid Williamson’s absence, the American press is arguing for Williamson’s trade, saying that New Orleans’ patience has reached its limit.
