NBA Podcast: Zion's Future, Slow Starts, Best Bad Teams + Early ROY Race

This article is part of our Fantasy Basketball Podcast series.

James Anderson joins Nick Whalen start by breaking down the newest batch of City Edition jerseys before reacting to the latest news surrounding Zion Williamson's (eventual) return from offseason foot surgery. The guys discuss the Pelicans' path forward and what to expect from Williamson, fantasy-wise, this season. Then, they talk about Michael Porter Jr.'s concerningly slow start, the banged-up Bucks, the 1-6 Pacers, and which bad team has the brightest future. Finally, the guys handicap the early Rookie of the Year favorites, including Evan Mobley and Scottie Barnes.
