PBT Podcast: Zion Williamson’s debut, and who should make NBA All-Star teams

Kurt Helin reacts to Zion Williamson's impressive debut and explains why his ability to play alongside Brandon Ingram is so important moving forward.

Zion Williamson’s debut lived up to the hype — at least 3.5 minutes of it did.

What can we take away from that first game? That’s what myself and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports discuss in this latest PBT podcast. We get into some of the big questions of the night: Was Alvin Gentry wrong to pull him out in the fourth quarter? What can we expect out of Zion going forward? And can the Pelicans make a playoff push?

After that, Dan and I break down our All-Star choices, including who we think should start (the fans got it right in the West, not so much in the East, in our opinion) and who should be the reserves in both conferences. Sorry Indiana.
