OTB Hour 1 | Zion Williamson’s incredible rookie season

Weekdays 7AM - 10AM

Jordy and T-Bob kicked off the hour with the top headlines of the day, including a big LSU basketball win over Missouri and Zion Williamson setting more records with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Williamson is the first rookie since the ’76-’77 merger to put up at least 30-5-5 in less than 30 minutes, among other incredible rookie feats. He joins Shaquille O’Neal and Grant Hill as the third player with seven 20 point games in his first ten career games over the past 30 years. T-Bob also broke down how the New Orleans Pelicans players translated as Avengers characters.

Jake Madison of the Locked on Pels podcast joined Jordy and T-Bob to talk about the Pelicans win over the Blazers.

Guys have been stepping up when they need to step up, but there is also another important thing you could point to for the Pelicans success: Zion Williamson.

“It could be Zion’s growth in a game-to game basis,” Madison said. “He just looks like a man among boys.”
