The NBA CORNER podcast takes a look at the New Orleans Pelicans, where Zion Williamson’s participation at the start of the season remains uncertain after an operation performed during the offseason for a broken foot.
Regularly injured since the start of his career, the Pelicans winger has however announced his goal of leading his team in the playoffs this season. Which could prove to be more difficult than it seems after the departures of Eric Bledsoe, and especially Lonzo Ball. The team is counting on the arrival on the bench of Willie Green, who will be assisted by Mike D’Antoni, to find the solutions.
Josh and Charles then discuss issues surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers roster, and their status – or not – as favorites in the Western Conference. But also the Warriors who should see Klay Thompson return to the court during the season, and who hope to return to the playoffs this season. The conversation ends with the latest information regarding Kyrie Irving, whose non-vaccination is currently preventing her from starting the season with the Brooklyn Nets.
