Zion Williamson Reportedly Annoyed Over Fat Shaming

Zion has heard ridicule for his weight.

His weight has always been a hot topic, which has at times gotten above 300 pounds. Zion is reportedly bothered by the idea that people think his weight is a sign he doesn’t love the game or want to be great, reports William Guillory at The Athletic.

“Williamson understands how much his weight has been a topic of discussion. While the Pels star has always tried to say the right thing whenever asked about his weight, people around Williamson maintain the constant ridicule he’s dealt with annoys him just as much as you’d expect.

But it’s not so much about people making fat jokes. Williamson has dealt with those kinds of jeers from opposing crowds most of his playing career. From what I’ve heard, it truly bothers him because people use his apparent weight gains in the past as proof that Williamson doesn’t like to work or doesn’t care about doing what’s necessary to be great. Williamson has always maintained that he has a deep love for the game, and he’s determined to fulfill his vast potential on the court.”

Through three years in the NBA Zion has played in only 85 games, and looked absolutely fantastic in those games, but he can’t help his team if he can’t stay healthy.

If Zion is that annoyed by all the talk over his weight, he has to get on the court and give everyone something else to talk about.

If he can stay healthy for a consistent amount of time, the Fat shaming should go away.
