It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
Far-Fetched Friday: Zion Williamson Wins 2022-23 NBA MVP
Zion Williamson is back and in better shape than ever. Meaning one of the most uniquely unstoppable forces in NBA history is in better physical condition than he has ever been. Combine that with joining a roster that proved they were a playoff team without him, and you have the recipe for an MVP season.
Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we analyze the return of Zion Williamson.
The core of this prediction is the hope that Zion Williamson plays the entire NBA season healthy. He's yet to prove he can do that and that's concerning, but Joel Embiid's story is all I need to think the marvels of medical care and injury prevention in the modern NBA will help Zion deliver a season for the ages.
Last we saw of Zion was 27 points a game on 61 percent shooting. That was on a Pelicans team with little direction, which meant they were still below .500 (29-32) in the games he played despite his outstanding contributions. But last season, under the guidance of Willie Green and some timely midseason trades, the Pelicans finished the regular season on an 18 and 15 run to sneak into a play-in game and an eventual playoff appearance. Add Zion Williamson to that roster, and now we're cooking with fire.
I predict that Zion Williamson will win the MVP for the 22-23 NBA season.
