More unsolicited advice for Zion Williamson, this time from Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who competed in the NBA at nearly 290.

He says it ruined his feet and ankles and suggests Williamson lose weight. But here’s the rub: Williamson’s body fat is already really low and his body is pretty sculpted.

Davis was anything but. He played in the NBA as a big fat tub of goo. You can’t possibly compare Davis to Williamson except in weight. Clearly Davis could have lost 20-30 lbs. It wouldn’t be easy for Williamson to do that and we’re not sure it would help him to do it anyway. Both Mike Krzyzewski and New Orleans exec David Griffin have said he’s unique and doesn’t need to drastically lose weight. So feel free to ignore Davis.

Again, Williamson is in uncharted territory. We’ve never seen anything like him. We’re going to have to let him figure out what works because no one else is remotely qualified to comment.
