In the press interview, Zion Williamson could not hide his disappointment when he played too little after the past two Pelicans games.
The New Orleans Pelicans went through two official matches in Orlando, all of which were defeats against the more prized opponents: Utah Jazz (106-104) and Los Angeles Clippers (126-103).
But the failure is not the result that makes the pelican fans too disappointed, what makes the audience feel uncomfortable is that coach Alvin Gentry used the number one star of the team too little.
Zion Williamson is the name that is expected by the NBA, the star also missed most of the season due to injury, so fans were expecting to see the 2000-year-old player shine in Orlando.
In return, he only played with a limited number of minutes, namely 15 minutes in the match against Utah Jazz scored 13 points, and 14 minutes against Clippers scored 7 points, 5 rebounds.
“To be honest, I found it difficult. As soon as I started to sweat, I looked over the bench and saw the sign for me, I was forced to leave the game”, Zion Williamson could not hide her loss hope to answer the reporter present at the yard.
Despite arriving in Orlando, New Orleans Pelicans are the team with almost no opportunity to play in the Playoffs. Therefore, there have been many comments that Gentry coach restricted use of Zion Williamson for fear he continues to face injury.
However, that explanation is clearly not convincing for Zion Williamson fans and even this 1m98 star. The Pelicans still have 6 more games for Zion to show off, but the final decision rests with Captain Alvin Gentry.
