There is a simple solution for Zion Williamsonreported weight issues … so said Kenny “The Jet” Smith, who tells TMZ Sports all the Pelicans star has to do is concentrate and eat less.
Sounds easy enough, right ??
The former No. 1 overall pick’s weight has been reported to have swelled north of 300 pounds during the offseason as he battles injury… and even the co-hosts of Kenny’s “Inside The NBA” Shaquille O’neal and Charles barkley joked about the situation.
But, when we spoke with Smith at LAX this week, we became aware of Zion… asking him how he could shed the extra pounds and get back in game shape by the time he came back to 100%.
“Every player in his career… he’s going to get injured at some point if you have a long career,” Kenny told us. “Meanwhile, you have to figure out how to stay in shape and stay in a basketball body.”
Kenny says he’s confident the 21-year-old will find out… and it won’t be as difficult as people think.
“The simplest part is that he will figure out how to eat less. It is not difficult when it is your profession. It takes hours to become a great basketball player. He will find the hours he needs to keep his body well. “
“It’s not difficult, you just need to eat less.”
We also spoke to The Jet about Scottie Pippenrecent comments from Michael jordan only do the doc “The Last Dance” to prove to the young people that he is still the finished GOAT James lebron … and he straightens Pip.
