ESPN knows where its bread is buttered. Zion Williamson will finally make his NBA debut next Wednesday, and the network is changing its broadcast schedule accordingly.
Per Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, ESPN is bumping its original scheduled game between the Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets for the rookie phenom’s debut.
While Rockets and Nuggets fans may be upset about this, the rest of the nation is almost assuredly excited about this development.
Williamson has been out of commission since before the season began with a knee injury that required surgery. It’s a troubling development, and the New Orleans Pelicans are taking the appropriate measures to give him the best chance to stay healthy.
