Well, people waited months and months for Zion to arrive. After dealing with some health issues, he finally made his debut last night.

I recognize that it’s just one game, but I think it’s 100% acceptable to get excited about Zion. This dude has all the hype in the world, and he deserves it.

Zion is a human highlight reel.

I can’t wait to see what Zion does the rest of the season. If Wednesday night was a preview of things to come, then fans are in for a very fun time down in New Orleans.
