JJ Riddick: Zion Williamson is a freelance associate

. jj_redick is concerned about how “disconnected” Zion Williamson is from the team. “This is the pattern of behavior that we see over and over again with Zion.”

What is the hype on Twitter?

Christian Clark @CICLARK 13

In hindsight, we may have had to make a bigger deal from Coach K saying Zion wasn’t in “playing shape or mental shape to play” even to play in the summer league. forbes.com/sites/adamzago…12:52 PM

Admit it, I’m not surprised by JJ Redick’s words today.
However, either Williamson’s behavior is corrected ASAP (Zion/his camp gets the program) or New Orleans is detoxified.
A team whose culture finally blossoms should never be tolerated. – 12:23 pm

Scott Kushner @Scott D. Kushner

Pelicans should not be left off the hook.
David Griffin did not improve the relationship. Hiring Stan van Gundy was a fatal mistake that poisoned pelican culture last year.
But Zion is completely wrong here, too.
It’s a bad situation. – 12:03 PM

Scott Kushner @Scott D. Kushner

JJ Redick is a Duke’s guy, a CAA guy, and someone who has a personal grudge against David Griffin.
For him, highlighting Zion as a bad teammate and not an investor in the franchise or his career is the most indictment I can think of, with the exception of an existing teammate who does. – 11:51 AM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake

Zion can calm all this down by doing easy little things. He may be fake/lying when he does. But everything calms down.
But sometimes silence is the answer – 11:48 am

Scott Kushner @Scott D. Kushner

It is astonishing, given all the noise and guesswork that Zion is going on, that it continues the path of complete silence.
Even a coordinated leak from his camp would nullify much of this.
Instead, there is nothing. to avoid. – 6:26 pm

Going from the face of the Pelicans franchise to not even being included in the latest season ticket brochure, that’s some regression for Zion Williamson.
The biggest shame is the feeling that so much negativity could have been avoided by approaching things differently. pic.twitter.com/oFicIRLoK94:13 pm

Jake Madison @NOLAJake

Given the way things went, and a lot of it got out of their hands, it’s probably the right move to not mention Zion in the opening paragraph to renew the ticket. If Beals did backlash it would be just as bad. – 3:34 pm

I get it from a pelican’s perspective.
They pushed Zion as a marquee attraction for 3 years and played in 14 home games that weren’t severely restricted by COVID restrictions.
I’m sure they are tired of being accused of false advertising. This is logical. – 3 o’clock
