The Pelicans Want You To Know They Don't Think Zion Is Fat, So Stop Asking!

We all now know that Zion is out 6-8 weeks with a torn meniscus. Just brutal news for basketball fans - because no matter what you think Zion is one of the most fun players in the NBA. Also as someone who gave out a Pelicans season over, not the best timing. 

Now obviously with the injury news immediately and I mean immediately it turned into a Zion weight debate. Is he fat? Do we call him husky or portly? Or on the flip side, what if he was actually just fine weight wise and it was a regular knee injury? There were debates about this and comments about it from coaches before too

I'll tell you who I really felt for yesterday though. Greg Oden. Poor guy was trending just because Zion got hurt. Just brutal for a guy in Oden who was going to be pretty damn good if his body didn't fail him. It was like the opposite of the standard Twitter trending thought though. Usually you see someone trending and immediately there are tweets saying thank God this person isn't dead. For Oden, you knew exactly why. Zion was hurt. Might as well have Sam Bowie and Brandon Roy trend too just to help out Oden.
