Pels are young and talented.

But these injuries though ...

Honest question here but is it time for a new medical/training staff??

The thing is, they made a big deal of bringing in the trainer from the Phoenix Suns. Supposed to be one of the best in the league. Not sure what's going on.

Don't they have multiple number 1 drafts picks in the next few years? I may have misread , but I thought they had two this year, next and the following, and the following as well. If so, they can add to their roster significantly and get over the hump, with or without Zion.

Not sure but doesn't it seem as if this team doesn't "gel" unless Zion is healthy?

What I mean is that when Zion is on the court, it leaves other shooters "open" ... but they gotta make those shots.

Losing Jose didn't help either.

Oh well, on to the off-season.

Dayum Chuck .

So what he's really saying is that Zion is not taking care of his body, is overweight, should be more motivated by millions & subsequently won't last long if he continues to do as he's doing?

Maybe Barkley is right
