    I believe new Orleans holds him out. They will look to solve any potential issues alla blake and ben simmons...

    His body build comparison with 15 less pounds would be a ron attest. If he could get down to 255....it will help him.

    He weighs 284. Huge by NBA standards but that weight would make him easily the smallest lineman in the league, Just looked it up, and average lineman weight is 314. So I overstimated it, and he would "just" have to gain 30 pounds. And be playing football. No, he would not be any healthier, and he also wouldn't be getting megamillions from Jordan Brand. Furthermore, the biggest contract an offensive lineman has ever gotten is 4 years, 66 mil, of which 36 mil is guaranteed. Pascal Siakam just signed for almost double that and it's all guaranteed. The supermax will be 4 times that by the time Williamson is eligible.

    "Damn, it’s the lateral meniscus; considered far more serious than a medial meniscus debridement bc it can lead to serious changes at the knee moving forward. For example, arthritis rates under 5 years after lateral meniscus debridement >>>>> medial meniscus debridement"

    my dude, zion could easily put on 30 lbs and be alright to be a LINEMAN. Do you watch football? These guys barely run. They backpedal and push, or move like 5 feet forward and push. They never jump or leave their feet. While Basketball players have to do suicide sprints 90 feet up and down over and over, bouncing up and down all over the place.. obviously he wouldnt have the clout or money as one of them as he would in basketball but hed actually be useful lmao

    If you watch football then you'd see all of the linemen in knee braces. If you watch football then you would know that everyone gets hit harder than basketball players. If he is an offensive lineman he has to wrestle some 320 lbs guy for 60 snaps, many of which he's going to fall and/or have huge men fall on him. And another thing: Williamson's most important and impressive athletic ability is his leaping ability, which would be completely useless for an o lineman. If he played football he might be a pass rusher or TE, some position where being explosive is important. And it would still be the wrong position compared to what he'll do on the court.
