On today's show, Ben Golliver and Michael Pina preview Zion Williamson's upcoming season debut on Wednesday. What's the baseline for a successful return to the court? What should we expect from the No. 1 overall pick? Can he alter the West's playoff race? From there, they pivot into a discussion of the top five franchise players who are 23 and under. Is it Luka Doncic and everyone else? Zion Williamson or Ja Morant? Donovan Mitchell or Ben Simmons? Brandon Ingram or Jayson Tatum? Ben and Michael close with questions from the Open Floor Globe. Is Al Horford a sleeper agent for the Boston Celtics? Who are the most pretentious fan bases? How can a Sacramento Kings fan convince his girlfriend to follow the NBA?
