Episode 46: Zion Williamson
Each era of the NBA has its transcendent players. The type of players that change the game simply by the manner in which they play, using their extreme talent to force opponents to change their approach. Can Zion Williamson be one of those players? Well, he's certainly on his way. In just his second season, he already has seasoned vets shaking their heads at the sheer talent and confidence he exudes on the court. And this week he sits down with JJ and Tommy and shows why he's just as impressive off the court as he is on it. He opens up about about several personal topics, including his feelings towards all the accolades and praise he has received so far, what it means to be named an all star, dealing with negative comments on social media, his progression as a player, and much more. **Note: there is no TOP 5/Draft in this episode. But tune in next week for an extra special draft with two guests that is easily one of the craziest OM3 drafts so far.
