As people across the basketball world continue to offer Zion Williamson unsolicited free advice, the latest to check in is Kobe Bryant.
And Bryant’s advice, not surprisingly, is simple and straightforward and about as Kobe as you can find. Get back to work:
“Players should be able to choose and decide what the hell they want to do, to be honest. Whether you want to go to college or not really depends on you. In terms of Zion, if he’s healthy, he should go play. He made a decision to go to college, and injuries are a part of that process, and sometimes you get hurt, sometimes you don’t, man. But you made the decision to go to college and you made your commitment to the university, then by all means finish your commitment. I expect him to get healthy, get his knee better or whatever it was, and come out and kick [expletive].”
Hold the presses, here’s the Greek Freak, aka Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was asked for his opinion. He says it’s up to Zion, but when asked what he would do in the same situation, he says “I love basketball too much to sit out.”
That, as the hologram said in I Robot, is the right response.
