^^^Exactly Ken. Better take this opportunity millions of kids dream about. So, what it's the team you wanted. You're playing ball and making money. Never liked Zion anyway. Selfish bastard.

Oh my! Where does this come from? I haven't seen anything remotely even hinting of him being selfish.

Why are you calling him selfish? He hasn't given any indication he wont go to New Orleans.

All this speculation is created by the media who probably wants to see him in NY.

Not to mention he doesn't owe New Orleans anything.

You're delusional. No proof he's a bastard.

from all accounts, zion is a good kid and he definitely ain't selfish.  i'm not a duke fan per se', but zion also doesn't play selfishly.  he shares the ball even when he can score without any help from his teammates...

And he'd still be the No. 1 pick in 2020.

His step daddy already said he would be glad to be a Pelican.  Hell I would go anywhere if they made me a millionaire.   Besides, the NY market is a lot for a rookie to handle.  They’ve sucked for over 20 years and while they’re loyal to the Knicks, they are BRUTAL. 

NO better make the most of it and build a team around him while they can.  Once they rookie contract is up I doubt he will sign a second deal.

I am gonna have to agree with bluedog on this. Because that is the same thing I thought.

We already have a backup plan for him.  The next Jimmy Graham. And this is not farfetched since the Saints and the Pelicans are owned by the same person.  Their training facilities in Metairie are located right next to each other.  Gayle is definitely using the Saints as a means to raise the popularity of the Pelicans.  I think Anthony Davis would be a fool to leave the Pelicans now that the franchise's luck is turning around, but they would definitely have to pay him.

And that's putting it mildly.

      I don't know cuz.  That's pretty far out there considering the effects injury will have on his main sport.  Basketball takes a lot more physical exertion than baseball does for example. So any ankle injury, back injury, foot injury could literally kill his basketball career.

Plus, he'll have to wait another year before he can join a NFL team.

Actually he has another option that's even better. He can sign the shoe contract for a hundred million dollars, and then go to Barcelona and play for one of the teams there for a year. For a percentage of their television Revenue in addition with the team contract
