Everyone has an opinion on Zion Williamson and most people are happy to offer one.
Ours? Ignore just about everyone and follow your own instincts.
Not everyone though. Charles Barkley has a certain expertise that very few people have and that’s having a body that can balloon up to 300 and what he had to do to have a long, successful career.
Barkley says that while he can’t know what Williamson’s perfect weight is, he thinks he needs to lose weight and in particular for the sake of his knees.
Lots of people have made this argument but hardly anyone has ever tried to do it. They aren’t identical players but Williamson would do well to seek out Barkley’s counsel.
