The start of the 2023-24 NBA regular season is upon us. Everyone has zero points, zero rebounds, and zero assists. Every team’s record is 0-0. No one has missed any game-winning shots yet. There are no boneheaded mistakes being broadcasted on Twitter timelines across the world.
It’s like the first day of school. Everyone has a fresh start and a chance to be anything they want to be. The possibilities are endless. So, to commemorate the most positive time of the year (for most fanbases), we’ve decided to outline one goal for each player on the current New Orleans Pelicans roster.
As the title suggests, this post will include 17 different players (the 14 they have under regular contracts and the three that are on two-way deals). Now, without further ado, let’s get to the goals.
Zion Williamson: Play 60 Games
Let’s start with the most important goal for the team’s most important player. Zion Williamson has the talent to be anything he wants to be as a basketball player. The only thing holding him back right now is health (and a couple of minor facets of his game).
Through his first four season, we’ve only seen him eclipse the 60 games played mark once (heck, we’ve only seen him surpass the 30 games played mark once). Hitting that threshold this year would go a long way toward not only helping this team make the playoffs, but also reaffirming the front office’s faith in this current core.
