Rising NBA star Zion Williamson continues to find meaning when taking L’s. Zion was not pleased with his performance in Wednesday’s 128-124 loss to the Chicago Bulls. Zion finished with 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists but missed two crucial free throws down the stretch. Following the final buzzer sounding, he skipped his normal postgame routine, Williamson walked back out onto the floor at the Smoothie King Center and took extra shots.
“I really felt like I let my team down, man,” Williamson told reporters, via ESPN. “It’s like I tell y’all, I never want to let them down. All those free throws, it can’t go down like that. I gotta be better in those situations. If I want to be one of those great players, I gotta take a lot of responsibility and be ready for those moments. Right after the game, I just felt like I had to go back on the court and find my flow.”
